30th March - Spurs in History

30th March, 1996

Spurs last home win of season 1995-96.

Spurs 3 Coventry City 1 (Premiership)

Teddy Sheringham and Ruel Fox(2) gave Spurs this win. Under Gerry Francis, Spurs were looking for a European place and it so nearly came in the last game at Newcastle but taking only one point from the final two home games Pic. Ruel Fox
made it more difficult.

Spurs eventually finished 8th on 61 points. Level on points with Everton and Blackburn but behind on goal difference and two points below Arsenal in 5th.

30th March, 1968

Spurs 5 Burnley 0 (1st Division)

Spurs went into this game after three League games undefeated, two scoreless draws followed by a 3-0 win at Stoke City.

Goals from Mike England, Jimmy Greaves(2), Terry Venables, Cliff Jones gave Spurs this very comfortable win.

The following Saturday, Spurs entertained Southampton at White Hart Lane and won 6-1 (Mullery, Greaves(2)(1p), Chivers, Jones, opp.og.)

The good form continued on Good Friday with a 2-1 home win over Leeds United. Greaves and Chivers were the scorers.

The six match unbeaten run, including four consecutive wins, came to end the next day as Spurs lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
