The League One play-off contenders held their own against a strong Spurs side which featured the likes of Gareth Bale, Jermain Defoe and Louis Saha.
The winners of the replay will play Bolton Wanderers at home for a place in the Semi-Final at Wembley Stadium.
Meanwhile, Chris Hughton's City side earned a replay after a deserved 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. The match at St.Andrews will be shown live on ITV1 on Tuesday 6 March, with a kick-off at 7.45pm.
Both teams will get £106,000 from The FA’s live broadcast fee, with the winners bagging £180,000 from The FA Cup Prize Fund.
