It's Tottenham!

West Ham will visit London neighbours Tottenham in the third round of the Carling Cup, after the draw was made this afternoon.

The draw - which will no doubt delight thousands of Hammers supporters - was made live on Sky this afternoon.

And the big bonus for West Ham is that the away allocation should be in the region of 6,000 tickets - which will no doubt sell out within days of them going on sale. The club are expected to announce details of when that will be early next week.

West Ham have reached the third round of the Carling Cup courtesy of wins over Rushden & Diamonds (3-1) and Cardiff (3-2).

Spurs - who were given a bye in the first round along with all Premiership clubs - beat first division Coventry 3-0 at Highfield Road on Wednesday night to book their passage through to the third round.

The Hammers will be hoping for better luck than they had on the last occasion the two sides met in this competition; on a cold February night back in 1987 Spurs ran out 5-0 winners in a Littlewoods Cup (as it was known then) quarter-final reply, after the teams had drawn 1-1 at Upton Park six days earlier (Tony Cottee bagging our goal).

All third round ties take place October 28th/29th.
