06.01.1996 Spurs had to dig deep in the Edgar Street mud to earn a replay against Hereford United in this FA Cup Third Round meeting.  

Hereford started on the offensive with John Brough volleying just wide and then Murray Fishlock had an effort blocked.  Darren Caskey set up Chris Armstrong to have a shot, but his drive went wide, while Ronny Rosenthal Volleyed Ruel Fox's cross just off target.  It was Rosenthal who put Tottenham ahead in the driving rain, when Sheringham missed Armstrong's cross and the Israeli reacted quickest to Darren Caskey's shot and headed it past the keeper Chris MacKenzie in the 31st minute from close-in.

Ian Walker was called upon to make a brave dive at the feet of Tony Pounder, but in the second half, a foul by Rosenthal and Caskey on Pounder, who was running in on goal, saw referee Riley point to the spot.  Hereford captain Dean Smith adopted the responsibility and fired his shot over the bar.  Spurs thought the luck may be on their side, but with exquisite symmetry, Hereford drew level with Brough heading a corner from Keith Downing past Ian Walker off the underside of the bar with 62 minutes gone.

With the rain still falling, Steve White had the chance to win it for Hereford, but he could only scoop Nicky Cross' ball in over the top, while Gary Mabbutt threw himself in the way of a shot from Cross to maintain a 1-1 score-line.  Sheringham had the best effort of the second period for Tottenham in the 75th minute, with a shot on a breakaway, but the goalie saved it well and both sides had to settle for a replay.
