Spurs in History - 27th January

27th January, 1968

Manchester United 2 Spurs 2 (Fa Cup 3rd Round)

Spurs two goal Hero - Martin Chivers

A difficult 3rd Round tie at Old Trafford saw Spurs earn a replay in a thrilling action-packed game with a last minute equalizer from Martin Chivers.

Mike England returned to the team, having been out for two months with injury but Jimmy Greaves was left out and Phil Beal played as an extra defender.

Martin Chivers, making only his third appearance for Spurs since signing from Southampton earlier in the month, scored after four minutes but United equalized within two minutes. Half way through the second half, United took a lead which they looked like holding until Chivers' last minute strike.

Team: Jennings, Kinnear, Knowles, Mullery, England, Mackay, Robertson, Gilzean, Chivers, Venables (Jones), Beal.
