Newport manager Michael Flynn:

"I am not happy we lost, but I am very proud of the effort and work-rate from my players.

"We kept going right to the end and we scored. It was important we were not embarrassed or trounced.

"In the first 25 minutes I thought we were the better team but how the goal went in was obviously deflating and it took us 10 minutes to get over that and then the damage was done.

"We needed the luck to go with us and the frustrating thing for us is we didn't hold on at home. It was always going to be tough here. Tottenham have fantastic players."

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino:

"Of course we are happy because we are in the next stage and that is the most important thing.

"It was a professional job and it was important for many players to have the possibility to play.

"It is tough to find a place to play as the team is doing well and today was a great opportunity.

"We won against Man United and drew a fantastic game at Liverpool and Newport lost to Lincoln and Colchester.

"But in the FA Cup we understand after a few years it is a magic competition and anything can happen."
