Spurs in History - 26th April

26th April, 1978

Spurs 1 Hull City 0 (2ndDivision)

The previous weekend, Spurs had increased the pressure on themselves in their promotion bid by losing at home to Sunderland. This time there could be no mistakes against Hull who were bottom of the Division.

They say that fortune favours the brave and this was the case as the only goal was scored by Captain, Steve Perryman. The game had reached the last ten minutes with the Hull goalkeeper standing firm to deny Spurs a goal. The goalkeeper caught a cross from a corner but when a Spurs forward challenged him he dropped the ball allowing Perryman to score.

The relief around White Hart Lane was unbelievable.
