Spurs in History - 24th January

24th January, 1981

Spurs 2 Hull City 0 FA Cup 4th Round

The 100th F.A. Cup competition saw Spurs with a home tie in the Fourth Round against Third Division strugglers, Hull City.

Spurs were in a period of impressive form, going into this game, and with Archibald and Crooks taking the chances created by a midfield including Hoddle, Ardiles and Galvin, the result should have been a formality.

However, Hull gave Spurs a scare and the deadlock was only broken when substitute Garry Brooke, who replaced Ardiles, scored with seven minutes remaining. Brooke then forced another save from the Hull keeper and set up Steve Archibald’s last minute goal.

Relief for Spurs as they progressed to the next round.

Team: Daines; McAllister, Miller, Roberts, Perryman, Yorath, Ardiles (Brooke), Hoddle, Galvin, Archibald, Crooks
