Spurs in History - 5th February

5th February, 1986

Spurs 0 Everton 0
Screen Sport Super Cup Semi-Final (1st leg)

This match attracted just over 7500 spectators to White Hart Lane for the 'nothing' competition that had been organised for the teams which had qualified for Europe but because of the five year ban imposed on English teams following the Heysel Stadium disaster involving Liverpool fans at the final of the European Cup the previous season, they were unable to participate in the European competitions.

The competition was of no interest to spectators and Spurs qualified for this semi-final be defeating Southampton twice and losing twice to Liverpool. In the second led tie Spurs lost 3-1 after extra time.

The only point of interest for Spurs in this competition was the re-appearance of Pat Jennings in a Spurs' shirt. He played in the previous game against Liverpool as he tried to maintain his fitness ahead of his World Cup Finals appearances for Northern Ireland in Mexico during the summer.
