Ryan Nelsen admits that he has "unfinished business" with the FA Cup ahead of Tottenham's fifth-round tie against Stevenage this weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Ryan Nelsen has admitted that he has "unfinished business" with the FA Cup ahead of his side's fifth-round tie against Stevenage on Sunday.

The New Zealander, who moved to Spurs last month, reached two semi-finals with former club Blackburn Rovers.

"I've been to three semi-finals, two of them in the FA Cup, so it would obviously be nice to push on," he said. "I've had a bit of a taste of it and have come so close to getting to a final so I feel I've got a bit of unfinished business with the competition.

"This squad is good enough to go on and win it, and I know it's a priority here. But we'll be taking this game seriously because it's going to be a very awkward one."

Nelsen made his Tottenham debut as a substitute in Saturday's 5-0 thrashing of Newcastle United.
