Khumalo poised for Spurs debut
Tottenham have completed the transfer of Bongani Khumalo from South African side Supersport United on a four-and-a-half year deal.
Khumalo, who could make his debut in the FA Cup third-round clash with Charlton, impressed during a trial at Spurs last July and the north London club have chosen to take the 23-year-old on a permanent transfer for a fee of around #1.5million.
The centre half, who was born in Swaziland, impressed for South Africa during the World Cup where he scored the opener in the hosts' 2-1 group stage win over France.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp already has a number of options in defence but there are still doubts over the long-term fitness of centre backs Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate.
Paul Benson will miss out for Charlton as he begins a three-match ban in what will be Keith Peacock's first game in temporary charge.
Striker Benson lost his appeal against his sending off in the closing stages of the Addicks` 3-3 draw with Colchester which allowed him to play in the home defeat to Swindon on Bank Holiday Monday.
However, young defender Matt Fry is available after he extended his loan from West Ham for another month.
Peacock was appointed caretaker manager following the sacking of Phil Parkinson on Tuesday in the wake of the heavy 4-2 defeat to the Robins.
Defoe sends Spurs through
Tottenham booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to an impressive second-half performance capped by a brilliant brace from former Charlton man Jermain Defoe in a 3-0 win.
Spurs put a sluggish first half behind them to take the lead through pacy youngster Andros Townsend, who fired past goalkeeper Rob Elliot to mark his debut with a goal.
Defoe, who started his career with the Addicks, made it 2-0 with a low drive before rounding off the victory by stabbing home from 18 yards for his fifth of the season.
Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who had hoped David Beckham would be in the stands to watch the match, announced that a loan deal for the star had fallen through before kick-off, and that the midfielder would come to the club just to train for a month.
On this evidence Townsend, who recently had his season-long loan terminated at Ipswich, may prove to be as exciting an option as the former England captain. The 19-year-old winger quickly made an impression on the game, beating two players with step-overs on the right before flashing a dangerous low ball across the box in the second minute.
Townsend won a free-kick in the 14th minute which Niko Kranjcar curled just wide.
Charlton, without a manager and 45 places below Spurs in the league ladder, looked threatening at times but the hosts controlled most of the possession in the opening half hour.
Roman Pavlyuchenko tested Elliot with a long-range shot 19 minutes in before Charlton captain Christian Dailly threw himself in front of Defoe to block the striker's shot moments later.
However, Spurs were becoming wasteful in possession and lacked the spark regularly offered by the likes of Rafael van der Vaart and Luka Modric - both of whom were on the bench.
Charlton pushed for an opener as the game reached the half-hour mark when midfielder Scott Wagstaff surged down the right to cross for Joe Anyinsah but Sebastien Bassong scrambled clear from inside the box.
Former Tottenham man Johnnie Jackson then beat Sandro down the left but Wagstaff shot just wide from 10 yards while under pressure from Wilson Palacios.
Then Jose Semedo then crossed for Jackson but his ball went just over the Addicks midfielder's head.
Redknapp looked to Modric for inspiration, the Croatian coming on for the poor Palacios at the break.
The home side cameout looking to make an immediate breakthrough and Pavlyuchenko could have scored had it not been for a diving block from another former Spurs man, Gary Doherty.
The opening goal came just under four minutes into the half when Townsend picked up Sandro's pass, got the ball out from under his feet and rifled a deflected shot past Elliot from 20 yards.
Spurs, now playing with the attacking verve often seen at White Hart Lane this season, looked for a second. Elliot produced a fine diving save to deny Pavlyuchenko before Modric's quick feet allowed him to wriggle past three Charlton but his shot went a yard wide.
Defoe poked wide from 20 yards but he soon made amends by putting Spurs 2-0 up just before the hour.
Kranjcar laid the ball to the striker, who dummied a shot before despatching a low 18-yard drive to score against the club where he began his career.
Now bristling with confidence, Defoe charged at the Charlton defence, won the ball back after being challenged, and fired past Elliot to make it 3-0 - after seeing his first effort blocked.
Cudicini was called into action as they slowed down with 15 minutes left when he palmed over a fierce shot from Charlton substitute Kyel Reid.
Townsend looked desperate to score his second and went close in the 79th minute when he shot a yard wide.
Modric's introduction was proving to be a masterstroke as he continued to cause problems for the away side.
The Croatian had a strong shot blocked by a wall of Charlton defenders and he was then brought down by Therry Racon on the edge of the box. Elliot produced a fine save to tip the resulting free-kick from Benoit Assou-Ekotto around the post.
Cudicini tipped over Akpo Sodje's 18-yard strike in the dying minutes as Charlton looked for a consolation before the Italian denied Doherty in injury time with a point-blank save from the former Spurs man.
