Spurs in History - 7th March

7th March, 1993
Manchester City 2 Spurs 4 F.A.Cup 6th Round

A memorable game, not just because Spurs won through to a semi-final tie against Arsenal, but because of the football that Spurs played, the hat-trick scored by Nayim and the fact that the game had to be stopped due to a pitch invasion by the City fans.

City went into the lead but Spurs were ahead at halftime through goals from Nayim and Steve Sedgeley. In the second half Spurs took control with Nayim scoring twice. Andy Turner had a goal disallowed and direct from the free-kick City went the length of the pitch and scored.

This was the signal for the City supporters to spill onto the pitch. The game was halted and the players left the pitch for thirteen minutes while the mounted police restored order.
