12th March - Spurs in History

This is the last time Spurs won on this day. Since then 6 League and Cup games have resulted in five defeat and one draw.

The 1960 victory was against Nottingham Forest in the 1st Division at the City Ground.

Three of the heroes of next year's Double team were the goalscorers - Dave Mackay, Les Allen and John White.

In this pre-Double season, Spurs were challenging at the top of the League - from late November they had won 10, drawn 3 and lost 3 games. However, following this win at Forest, their form slipped ( W 3 D 2 L 4) and they finished third, only two points behind Champions, Burnley.
