Premiership Spurs had taken the lead through Jermaine Jenas before Paul Stalteri added a spectacular second.

"I think if you work hard then you get your rewards. I think we deserved to win this one."

But Elvis Hammond pulled a goal back for the Championship strugglers moments before half-time, Stephen Hughes hauled the Foxes' level with an assured second-half strike and Mark de Vries bagged the stoppage-time winner.

De Vries feared flag!

Leicester match-winner Mark de Vries admitted he was fearing an offside flag would rule out the late goal which dumped Tottenham out of the FA Cup.

The Dutchman, formerly of Hearts, prodded home Joey Gudjonsson's pass in the first minute of stoppage time to earn the Foxes a 3-2 win at the Walkers Stadium.

TV replays showed De Vries was onside, and the assistant referee was also in no doubt.

"I thought he was going to say I was offside but obviously not," De Vries told BBC1.

"I think if you work hard then you get your rewards. I think we deserved to win this one."
