27.01.1993 Goals from Frank Yallop and Boncho Guentchev gave Ipswich Town victory in this Premier League match at White Hart Lane.

Justin Edinburgh headed off the Spurs goal-line and the ball was cleared out to 35 yards, but Frank Yallop hit a screamer back into the Tottenham net to give Ipswich the lead.  That lead was extended when Spurs were denied a free-kick in attack, leaving Ipswich to break away on the left and when the ball came in, Guentchev was at the far post to tap it into a vacant goal.

30.08.1992 A spectacular goal by Jason Cundy (his only strike for the club) earned Spurs a draw on their visit to Portman Road.

With all eyes on debutant Teddy Sheringham, Cundy stole the limelight when, with half an hour gone, he challenged with Jason Dozzell for a ball from an Ipswich Town throw-in on the half-way line and his contact lofted into the air and over Craig Forrest in the Ipswich goal some 50 yards away !! 

Later in the first half, John Wark equalised with a goal when he looked offside to share the spoils.  He latched onto Geraint Williams' chip over the Spurs defence to lob the ball over Walker, but the point took Spurs off the bottom of the table.

21.12.1985 Ipswich came to White Hart Lane one place off the bottom and left in a worse position after a 2-0 Spurs win.

Clive Allen's 20th minute opener came from a cute Hoddle pass that opened space for the prolific scorer to lob over Cooper's head.  Hoddle headed home a second shortly after, going in low to convert Falco's header down from a cross by Chris Waddle.

10.04.1982 Spurs had been on the end of a good kicking from Barcelona in midweek and Ipswich were sitting second in the League, so it was a surprise that Spurs won this one at White Hart Lane.  Clemence saved a John Wark penalty to give Spurs confidence to go on to take the points with a shot from Glenn Hoddle with just nine minutes remaining.

14.03.1981 A 3-0 win for Ipswich at Portman Road was not without some controversy.

The first Town goal came in the eighth minute, when Eric Gates fired in a shot that beat Daines at his near post from a narrow angle, then with half-time approaching, Don McAllister tackled Paul Mariner in the area and the forward plummeted to the ground.  The referee pointed to the spot and John Wark scored with the resulting penalty to make it 2-0 at the break.

Daines made a good save from Frans Thijssen when he kicked out the Dutchman's header with his feet while diving the wrong way, but he was helpless when Alan Brazil ran through, from what looked like an offside position, to put the ball past the Spurs keeper in the 68th minute.

20.08.1975 Spurs were lacking inspiration as they ground out a 1-1 home draw with Ipswich Town.

Ipswich were worth their lead, with Colin Viljoen scoring in the second half, but a header from substitute John Duncan, who out-jumped Kevin Beattie and George Burley, levelled the score and earned Spurs a point.

14.12.1974 A poor display by Spurs was condemned to defeat by four unanswered Ipswich Town goals at Portman Road.

Kevin Beattie and Colin Viljoen had put Town 2-0 ahead at the break and the score was doubled by goals from Mick Lambert and Roger Osborne.

Tottenham's best chance came from a Martin Peters header that was saved by Laurie Sivell.

Terry Neill - I think those supporters are marvellous. I felt really sorry for them at Ipswich. They were still cheering us on when we were losing 4-0. I certainly would not have blamed them if they had been completely silenced by our performance. I only wish things had been different for them.
 

17.08.1974 Ipswich Town were the visitors to White Hart Lane on opening day and left N17 with two points.

It only took one goal to win the match and it came in the second half, when striker David Johnson headed in from Kevin Beattie's free-kick
in the 67th minute. While Ipswich were ahead, Tottenham did have chances to equalise, but failed to turn them into goals.

02.09.1972 Alan Gilzean threatened the Ipswich goal in the first half, but it was in the second half that the goals came to see the game at Portman Road against Ipswich Town drawn 1-1. 

Phil Beal slid in to make a tackle as Mick Lambert was breaking onto a ball in the six yard box.  An entertaining game was enlivened further when Colin Viljoen opened the scoring, but when Martin Peters was fouled by Kevin Beattie, he got up to plant the ball into the net from the penalty spot to equalise sending David Best the wrong way.  Alan Gilzean thought he had doubled the lead, when he hooked past Paul Cooper from close range, but he was disappointed to see the linesman's flag giving him offside and with a final push Spurs almost won the match, but had to settle for the draw.

03.04.1972 This First Division meeting at Portman Road ended in an Easter Monday win for the Suffolk side.

The score was 0-0 at half-time, but Spurs had lost John Pratt with a serious nose injury during that 45 minutes.  Into the second half, Tony Want put the ball past Jennings to give the home side the advantage, but Martin Chivers took a chance soon after to bring the scores level at 1-1.  However, turning in a good performance, Ipswich grabbed a deserved winner late on through striker Rod Belfitt.

02.10.1971 Spurs had to come from a goal behind to take both points in this Division 1 game at White Hart Lane.

Ian Collard had shocked the Tottenham fans by putting the Blues into the lead with an early goal, after exchanging passes with former Spurs Jimmy Robertson and hitting his shot just inside the post in the 16th minute.  Town keeper Laurie Sivell did well to block a close range shot from Alan Gilzean.

In the second period, Spurs started to gain the ascendancy and when Martin Chivers steered home the 58th minute equaliser, as Laurie Sivell and Derek Jefferson left a cross to give the Spurs striker and easy chance to score, it looked as though Ipswich would crumble under the pressure.  Tottenham eventually gained the winner when Martin Peters scored from a Cyril Knowles free-kick to secure the victory, with the Town players calling for a Gilzean foul on Sivell, which was not given.

Bobby Bell former Spurs apprentice was sold by Ipswich to Blackburn in September 1971 and then moved to Crystal Palace two weeks later.

23.03.1971 Tottenham triumphed on their travels to Portman Road after coming back from being a goal down and having lost Cyril Knowles with a gashed shin in the first half.  Mick Hill gave the home side the lead with a 17th minute header, but Spurs had to wait until the last quarter of an hour to get the goals to give them their win.

Martin Peters smashed in the equaliser before Alan Gilzean popped up with five minutes remaining to score the Tottenham winner.  In the remaining time, Ipswich still went close to scoring a leveller, hitting the woodwork in the last few moments.

30.08.1969 An Ipswich fight-back at White Hart Lane gave Spurs a fright before they managed to take the points with a 3-2 win.

Tottenham were 2-0 ahead at the interval thanks to Alan Mullery and Alan Gilzean hitting the target.  Jimmy Greaves made it 3-0 shortly after the break, but the visitors stormed back to peg Spurs back to 3-2 when Ron Wigg and Colin Viljoen netted.  Despite a spirited finish by Ipswich, Spurs held on for the win.

14.03.1962 Alf Ramsey's return to White Hart Lane as manager of second place Ipswich Town could not have gone better for him.  His team's organisation was the key and striker Ray Crawford gave the visitors an early lead and they were disciplined enough to with-hold Tottenham's attacks, until Jimmy Greaves broke through the defence and found the back of the net to make it 1-1 just before half-time.

The respite was brief, as Ipswich got their lead back a minute after the interval through Ted Phillips. 
Well drilled and playing a solid formation, Ipswich controlled things in the second half, going on to add to their lead with another goal from Ted Phillips that wrapped up a convincing
3-1 win.

21.10.1961 The demand to see this match between the current champions and the team who were currently top of the table meant that the gates had to be closed before the kick-off with a record crowd already inside.

Cliff Jones' header from John White's cross put Tottenham ahead, but Ted Phillips pulled Ipswich level in the 37th minute However, Jones struck again to put Spurs into the lead as they left the field at the half-time whistle.

Jones was a thorn in Town's side after the break, but the game was turned in Ipswich's favour by two Ray Crawford goals in three second half minutes soon after the restart.  With Spurs pressing on the Town goal, the home side managed to hold out for both points.
