Spurs in History - 4th February

4th February, 1961

Spurs 2 Leicester City 3 (1st Division)

The ‘Double’ winning season included many records and this game marked the first home defeat suffered by the team. Spurs had won all but two of those thirteen League games but this game proved one too many.

Leicester took the lead after thirty minutes. Les Allen equalised within five minutes but City scored again three minutes later. Immediately after half time, Spurs were level through a Danny Blanchflower penalty but when Leicester regained the lead, Spurs were unable to reply.

Although suffering their second defeat in three games, Spurs were still eight points ahead of Wolves with Sheffield Wednesday third.
