Spurs in History - 11th April

11th April, 1981

Spurs 2 Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 (aet) F.A.Cup Semi-Final at Hillsborough.

Spurs were on their way to Wembley until the referee intervened and awarded Wolves a last minute penalty for a fair tackle by Glenn Hoddle on Hibbitt who fell to the ground. Wolves equalised and extra time remained goalless.

Spurs had scored through Steve Archibald after four minutes but Wolves equalised a minute later. Just before half-time, Hoddle gave Spurs the lead from a free kick, that could justifiably have been a penalty. Spurs defended resolutely until the referee played his part but then we would have missed the excitement of the replay at Highbury.
