24th March - Spurs in History
24th March has been a quiet day in Spurs' history.
The last occasion that they played on this date was in 2002.
Fulham 0 Spurs 2
The team had gone into sudden free-fall after the Worthington Cup defeat in Cardiff and although they won their next match at home to Sunderland, the next four games saw them lose, including three successive 0 - 4 reverses to United and Chelsea twice (F A Cup and League).
So a season under Glenn Hoddle which had promised so much in the early months and with impressive progress in both Cup competitions in January and February, was now in major decline.
The game at Craven Cottage was Spurs first League visit there for 24 years and they completed an impressive League 'double' over Fulham. The goals were scored by the two 'old' men of the team, Teddy Sheringham and Gus Poyet.
The two clubs met three times that season, with Spurs successful in all the games, including a League Cup win in November.
