    That's all from me here - join the guys over here for coverage of all of the day's other FA Cup ties.

    Have a good afternoon!

  2. FULL-TIME

    Colchester 1-4 Tottenham

    There it is, Colchester are put out of their misery and Spurs are into round five.

    Could have been more, in all honesty.

  3. Post update

    Colchester 1-4 Tottenham

    Plenty of fans flock to the exits now. It's been a job very easily done in the end by Tottenham. How far can they go? 

  4. Post update

    Colchester 1-4 Tottenham

    Spurs have had 26 shots on goal this afternoon. You can see why Colchester's defensive record is so heinous.

    Daniel Woodley: "Cup tie has livened up in this second half. Colchester have done their fans proud. Tottenham very ruthless

    "We were just giving Colchester credit for their play going forward but at the back it is an absolute shambles. Tom Carroll was free in the middle - who was picking him up?"

  7. GOAL - Colchester 1-4 Tottenham

    Tom Carroll

    Tom Carroll puts Spurs three goals up again as the Colchester defence just stand and watch Nacer Chadli pick him out on the left. Carroll's shot is tipped on to the crossbar and in by Jake Kean.

    Colchester 1-3 Tottenham

    Chris Sutton

    Former Chelsea & Norwich striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Great play from George Moncur driving in across the pitch, he toed the ball through to Gavin Massey and it went in off Ben Davies eventually. Credit to Colchester - they have looked a threat going forward in this half."

  9. GOAL - Colchester 1-3 Tottenham

    Ben Davies (OG)

    The game is not done! Gavin Massey drives into the penalty area, toes a shot across goal and hits the post and Ben Davies can do nothing about it, it hits his shins and goes in.

    Colchester 0-3 Tottenham

    Extraordinary - a fan is on the pitch asking Michel Vorm for an autograph. The game hasn't finished!

    "I just wonder - did that take a deflection? Because Jake Kean was flat-footed at his near post. Colchester have put up a decent show but it's comfortable from Tottenham now."

  12. GOAL - Colchester 0-3 Tottenham

    Nacer Chadli

    That really is game, set, and the match to Tottenham now. Kieran Trippier, who has impressed throughout, whips in a cross and Nacer Chadli stoops to head in his second of the game.

  13. 'That was the chance!'

    Colchester 0-2 Tottenham

    Chris Sutton

    Former Chelsea & Norwich striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Sheer complacency from Tottenham. Eric Dier has breezed through the game but gives the ball away. Marvin Sordell is played in and has to score but hits the post. If Colchester were going to get back into this game, that was the chance."

  14. Post update

    Colchester 0-2 Tottenham

    I was just about to say that the ref could call this game off and both sides would take it, but perhaps the hosts are mounting a late charge! That chance came from complacency as Eric Dier lost his footing and his mind momentarily.

  15. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Colchester 0-2 Tottenham

    What a chance! Colchester sub Marvin Sordell is let in as Eric Dier slips, he's in one on one - but hits the post!

  16. Post update

    Colchester 0-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham have had 20 efforts on goal but just five have been on target - is that a concern for Spurs fans?

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Colchester 0-2 Tottenham

    Spurs bring on Son Heung-min as Harry Kane gets a bit of a rest. Mousa Dembele takes the captain's armband for Tottenham.

    Former Chelsea & Norwich striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Eric Dier must have been about 40 yards out, I'm surprised he took the shot on. Jake Kean was wrong-footed by the deflection, Colchester don't deserve that. They've shown a lot more intent this half."

    Kean
  19. GOAL - Colchester 0-2 Tottenham

    Eric Dier

    Tottenham's forwards have made a mess of wrapping this game up so centre-back Eric Dier takes matters into his own hands. He shoots from a good 30 yards out, the ball takes a whacking great deflection off the head of Matthew Briggs and cruelly loops into the net. No chance for Jake Kean. Spurs through?

    "Nacer Chadli should have scored. The ball was behind him but once he gets turned he's eight yards from the line. Will these missed chances come back to haunt Tottenham?"
