Sessegnon was firstly booked after only 11 minutes for a mistimed tackle.

The wing-back was then sent-off for a second booking 20 minutes laters.

Sessegnon looked furious after he was punished, but he caught his opponent while stretching for a loose ball, leaving the ref with no option.

And that was after Tomi Horvat collected the ball on the right, drifted past Davinson Sanchez into the box and then curled a super effort straight into the far top corner.

But Kane was able to draw the Premier League side level despite their numerical disadvantage with just 18 minutes remaining.

And that looked like it was enough to earn a point and keep their Conference League ambitions alive ahead of their final group game against leaders Rennes on December 9.

However, agony was in store in the final seconds as Mura struck in the fourth minute of added on time to send Spurs packing with their tails between their legs.
