17 mins: Close! Matt Doherty brings the ball inside from the right wing and sends the ball into the feet of Son. Son has no immediate options for a pass so drills a low left-footed effort towards goal.

Harry Kane is up there with the best, says Preston’s Spurs loanee Troy Parrott

Troy Parrott has not been asked by his Preston team-mates how to stop Tottenham forward Harry Kane, but admits his answer “would probably be you can’t”.

Spurs academy graduate Parrott will be reduced to watching on Saturday night after his parent club were drawn away to his current team in the FA Cup fourth round.

It could be a record-breaking occasion for Kane, who needs one more goal to move past Jimmy Greaves and become Tottenham’s outright leading scorer, but the striker has not been the sole talk of the Deepdale defenders this week.
