Spurs in History - 12th April

Two early goals from Terry Venables set Spurs up in this FA Cup Replay against Birmingham City

12th April, 1967

Spurs 6 Birmingham City 0 F.A.Cup 6th Round Replay

The first game the previous weekend had remained scoreless as 2nd Division Birmingham had battled bravely to deny Spurs. The nearest they had come to scoring was late on when Pat Jennings in catching an awkward dropping centre from under the bar, let it slip from his grasp and had City claiming a goal but the referee disagreed.

The replay saw Spurs in total control. Terry Venables scored twice, after 90 seconds and after 18 minutes. Two minutes later Alan Gilzean scored the third. In th second half, Jimmy Greaves (2) and Frank Saul completed the goal feast.

Nottingham Forest awaited Spurs in the semi-final clash to be played at Hillsborough.
