22.10.1977 Spurs hit nine goals without reply in a great performance in this Second Division match.

21 minutes in, Colin Lee scored his first goal for Spurs, shooting home after a cross from Glenn Hoddle and within four minutes, he had doubled the lead with a header on the end of John Pratt's corner.

Spurs went 3-0 ahead with a minute to go before the half time whistle, with Peter Taylor converting Hoddle's fine cross to see a 3-0 lead taken into the break.

With Keith Burkinshaw missing the game away on football business, Spurs went on to play an expansive game in the second half, with some wonderful football played. In the 56th minute, Ian Moores scored, with Colin Lee completing his hat-trick a minute later as Spurs went 5-0 up. Ian Moores sealed his own triple with two quick-fire goals in two minutes and then it became four for the new signing as Lee put Tottenham eight ahead.

Having been the architect of a number of the goals, Hoddle completed the rout with the ninth goal with a close range volley from a Moores cross.

After the Rovers game, Spurs lost just three league games in the rest of the season, but ended up in a tight finish with Southampton and Brighton and Hove Albion, as Bolton Wanderers finished top of the table.  Spurs ended up one point behind Southampton and Tottenham gained promotion in third place on goal difference over the Seagulls. Spurs +34 over Brighton's +25 took them up, with the difference being the nine goals scored in the Bristol Rovers game at the Lane.

08.01.1921 The First Round of the FA Cup in 1920 was equivalent to the Third round these days and was the first step on Spurs' road to winning the trophy in this season.   

Only two minutes into the game, Rovers lost a player through injury and goalkeeper Jesse Whatley produced a fine performance to keep Spurs at bay.  An early lead was gained from Jimmy Seed's powerful shot that set Tottenham on their way and a 12th minute Tommy Clay penalty put them 2-0 ahead.

Fanny Walden and Bert Smith made it four before the interval, but Rovers pulled a goal back into the second half, ahead of Jimmy Cantrell netting Tottenham's fifth goal.  The visitors then scored another, but a late Bert Bliss effort gave Spurs a 6-2 final score.
