Wimbledon 0 Spurs 2 F.A.Cup 6th Round.
Wimbledon were proving difficult to beat and earlier in the season had won at White Hart Lane in the League. This tie was televised and Spurs were being set up for a Cup shock but the team had come into a good vein of form, although they had lost the semi-final replay in the League Cup to Arsenal at the beginning of the month.
In this game the team applied themselves well, ensuring they coped with Wimbledon’s long ball tactics and goals from Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle ensured the ‘Diamond Lights’ were still shining for the semi-final tie.
