Rochdale boss insists that his side's FA Cup fifth-round replay against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley will not be treated as a "day out".

Rochdale manager Keith Hill has insisted that his team will not be looking at Wednesday's FA Cup fifth-round replay as a "day out" to Wembley when they face Tottenham Hotspur.

The League One outfit will head to the famous ground with the aim of causing an upset following their late 2-2 draw at Spotland Stadium.

"We will constantly be reminding the players that it is work and we are going there to try to beat Tottenham," Sky Sports News quotes Hill as saying.

"I'm looking forward to the game, not the trip. It's not a day out. Is it a dream to play at Wembley? It is a dream to win at Wembley. You'd rather be playing at Wembley in a cup final.

"It just happens that it's Tottenham's home ground this season. Too much is made of the special occasion - we are playing Tottenham in a replay. Cut out the sideshows and make sure we focus on trying to win a match."

A dramatic win would send Rochdale into a quarter-final tie against either Swansea City or Sheffield Wednesday.
