Spurs in History - 3rd November

3rd November, 1951

Spurs 4 Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 (1st Division)

As League Champions, Spurs continued their good home performances with a sixth win and only one defeat in eight games.

However, early season injuries had disrupted the team and they were finding it difficult to produce the football that had become characteristic of the ‘push and run’ team of previous years.

Over 61,000 spectators watched as Spurs scored through Alf Ramsay (pen), Sonny Walters, Les Bennett and Len Duquemin. In spite of a poor run in mid-season Spurs managed to finish as runners up four points behind Manchester United but ahead of Arsenal on goal difference.
