23.09.1997 Spurs had to come from behind to secure a 1-1 Premier League draw at the Reebok.  

A decision to give a penalty for an Edinburgh trip on Nathan Blake gave the home side the opportunity to take the lead in the 20th minute, when Alan Thompson scored the first goal at the new stadium.  Walker faced a tide of efforts from the Trotters and Thompson hit the bar with a firm drive.  Chris Armstrong came on for Paul Mahorn and in the 71st minute, it was his header that rounded off Ginola's cross to earn an equaliser.

08.05.1979 The last away match of this Division 1 season saw Tottenham travel to Burnden Park and come back South with the points.

The home side went ahead in the early stages with a Frank Worthington goal, but half way through the first period, Mark Falco pounced to strike a left footed shot to regain parity on his League debut.  

It took until the 62nd minute for Spurs to get their noses in front, when Ricky Villa's shot flew in off gargantuan central defender Sam Allardyce to make it 2-1.  Ossie Ardiles ran the show for Tottenham and was unlucky to see his "goal" ruled out for offside, but a late goal from defender Jimmy Holmes' shot wrapped up the win for Spurs.

28.10.1978 Both promoted sides met in the First Division at White Hart Lane and Spurs started like a whirlwind.

Peter Taylor's run up the line ended with a shot that Jim McDonagh beat out and then Colin Lee and Don McAllister both put good chances over the bar with their head.  Taylor had a shot that flew past the post and then some good play saw Steve Perryman lay the ball into Lee's path and he blasted the ball into the net from just outside the box. 

Tottenham continued to press and McDonagh managed to get his hand to John Pratt's drive and divert the ball over the top, while five minutes into the second half, Glenn Hoddle's corner was headed in at the near post by Pratt to make it 2-0. 

At last Bolton showed some attacking intent and Peter Reid's shot flew off Barry Daines and Taylor was on hand to kick the ball out as it was going in.  Winger Willie Morgan was unlucky after his shot flew off a Spurs leg and hit the crossbar.

08.04.1978 This crunch Division 2 meeting was moved to kick off at 2.45 p.m. to avoid the FA Cup semi-final between Ipswich Town and West Bromwich Albion at Highbury.  While Tottenham were looking for an immediate return to the top flight, Bolton had been climbing back up after sinking to Division Three. 

The biggest White Hart Lane crowd for three years witnessed a tense affair with both clubs on 51 points, but Spurs on top courtesy of a better goal difference.  It was a single goal from a familiar face to Bolton fans that won the game, with Don McAllister, signed from Burnden Park three years previously, who dived in to head home Glenn Hoddle's flick on to John Pratt's corner in the 35th minute to beat Jim McDonagh in goal.

There was a threat to the lead when the ball hit the Spurs net in the 71st minute, but Neil Whatmore was ruled offside by the linesman after the referee had given the goal initially.

10.01.1978 Bolton took the FA Cup 3rd Round replay in extra time to progress to the Fourth Round, but only after a battle by Spurs.

John Ritson put the home side ahead, but Peter Taylor's late penalty - his first goal for Tottenham - gave Spurs an equaliser to take the game into an extra half-hour.  Bolton were the stronger side in extra time and a Gary Jones strike settled the match in the Trotters' favour.

07.01.1978 Bolton were our opponents in the FA Cup 3rd Round and having been vying with them at the top of the Second Division only separated by goal difference, as tight battle was in prospect.

An indeed that proved the case despite Tottenham taking a 2-0 lead.  John Duncan struck to head in the first goal from a 38th minute Glenn Hoddle corner.  However, Roy Greaves got Bolton back on track with a penalty awarded against Jimmy Holmes for handball in the 55th minute. 

It was Hoddle put Tottenham further ahead when he produced a curler around McDonagh from 15 yards out after being set up by Holmes and Gerry Armstrong, but Neil Whatmore equalised with five minutes to spare, converting Micky Walsh's through ball to take Spurs back to Burnden Park for the replay.

18.04.1964 Jimmy Greaves' goal decided this Division 1 match between the two sides at the Lane.  Bolton sat near the bottom of the table, even though they had not been beaten in six matches needing one point from their last two games to avoid relegation, but in converting a Mullery cross, Greaves helped condemn Wanderers to the Second Division.

Bolton should have gone ahead in the early stages when Francis Lee set up Gordon Taylor for a shot the flew just wide of the Tottenham goal.  However, Greaves' goal five minutes before the interval settled the match, knocking the ball into the net from close range.

Jimmy Greaves' header in the tenth minute was deflected past his own goalkeeper by defender Syd Farrimond, but a determined Bolton side pulled level with a goal in the 20th minute from Wyn Davies' volley.  Five minutes later, Spurs regained the lead with Jimmy Greaves netting his 200th league goal of his career with a left foot shot past Eddie Hopkinson.  

After the half time break, it took ten minutes for Tottenham to make it 3-1.  Cliff Jones ran half the length of the pitch, before passing to Greaves, who fed Dyson to score the final goal of the game.

24.02.1962 Spurs were in the midst of a busy spell when they met Bolton in this First Division game at White Hart Lane.

Two days before Tottenham met Dukla Prague, they faced Bolton and the visitors took the early initiative.  Freddie Hill struck the bar and the goalpost, but it was Spurs who took the lead with Bobby Smith's 34th minute volley finishing off a neat chipped pass from John White.  However, Hill did find the back of the net shortly afterwards to make it 1-1 after being set free by Ron McGarry. 

Hill was on the mark again in the 54th minute to give Wanderers the lead as he crashed in a 30 yard left foot shot, but Spurs responded with White the creator once more, this time setting up Jimmy Greaves with ten minutes left on the clock.

An early season game saw Tottenham beat Bolton Wanderers at White Hart Lane by four goals to two in the First Division to complete a double over the Trotters in five days. 

One win in three games prior to this match gave no indication of what would happen at the end of the campaign, with Spurs ending it with their first First Division championship title. 

Tottenham had been shocked when Moir shot home through a crowded penalty area to give the Trotters a 10th minute lead, but things got worse when Langton fed Hernon to set up Moir to score his second of the game. 

But Tottenham started to put things together, with some neat passing opening up Bolton to allow Medley to cross for Duquemin to crash in a header.  This inspired a spell of pressure that brought an equaliser when Sonny Walters put a corner into the goalmouth and Howe knocked the ball into his own goal. 

Now level, Tottenham had the momentum to go on and win the game.  With Duquemin shooting his second and Bill Nicholson creating a fourth for Eddie Baily Spurs had won a the match that had goals, chances and good personal battles all over the field, played out in a sporting manner.

23.08.1950 After a poor start to the season Arthur Rowe's side kick started their season with an away win at Bolton's Burnden Park, which was soaked after a three hour downpour before the game.

They suffered a set-back when Clarke slid Langton's cross into his own net on 35 minutes, but five minutes before the break Murphy ran through the home defence and the keeper could only help the ball into the net. 

The second half proved a better one for Spurs and Medley, Walters and Duquemin all scored to give Tottenham the points.

Bolton were near the foot of Division One, while Spurs were in the Second Division when the two teams were drawn together in the Third Round of the FA Cup at Burnden Park. 

Tottenham were grateful to Bill Nicholson, who cleared a Bolton shot off the line after it had got past Ted Ditchburn, so the game went into extra time, which was played after the first game in this time.   

Seven minutes in, Len Duquemin hit the first goal of the game in his first FA Cup match.  The striker had to power through the muddy pitch and went past two defenders before shooting across Bolton keeper Hanson.  Freddie Cox's cross provided Duquemin with the opportunity to head home a second in the closing minute of the game to see Tottenham to victory by diving head-long into the mud to score.
