Kashket delighted with "dream draw" against Spurs

Scott Kashket has described Wycombe’s FA Cup draw away to Spurs as a “dream come true”.


Spurs fan Kashket, 20, helped the League Two promotion hopefuls overcome non-league Stourbridge 2-1 in the third round and there were scenes of jubilation when Wycombe pulled the Premier League giants out of the hat for round four.

Kashket said: “I wanted a big team and although I wouldn’t have minded Manchester United at Old Trafford, Spurs at White Hart Lane is a dream draw.

“As a lower league team, you always want to test yourselves against the best in a big stadium. It will be the biggest game of my career and hopefully Spurs will put out their strongest XI.”

Kashket, who has scored 13 goals this season, describes Harry Kane as his “favourite Spurs player” but he insists Wycombe must focus on their forthcoming league matches before their trip to north London.

Prior to the Stourbridge match, Kashket was presented with the SkyBet League Two Player of the Month award, which he described as “one of the highlights of my career”. He said: “It was a proud moment to win and I’d like to thank the manager for believing in me and giving me a chance.

“I couldn’t have done it without my team-mates. I’ve really hit it off with strike partner Adebayo Akinfenwa. His experience has been useful on and off the pitch. He has helped me a lot.”
