02.04.2001 A young Spurs Reserves side earned a 2-1 win at Filbert Street against Leicester City Reserves.

17 year old Paul O' Donoghue made his debut in defence, as Spurs launched attacks, with Dave McEwen going close with just 30 seconds gone. The oldest player in the Tottenham team at 23, McEwen only had to wait for five and a half minutes more before he put the side ahead. Johnnie Jackson slipped a pass through the Foxes defence and the striker slotted past Ian Andrews in the home goal to give Tottenham the lead.

Spurs were grateful to Gavin Kelly for preserving the lead with three sharp saves before the interval, but in the closing stages Lawrie Dudfield missed a good opening for Leicester and then two minutes later, John Piercy threaded a pass through for McEwen to finish past the City goalkeeper to double the lead.

In the last minute, Spurs conceded a penalty and Dudfield's spot-kick was saved by Kelly, but the City striker netted the rebound to give the score-line a look of respectability.

17.10.1981 Spurs Reserves slipped to a 0-2 home defeat in the Football Combination to Leicester City.

A free-kick awarded in the area was deemed to be indirect by the referee and this did not deter the Foxes' Peter Welsh from chipping the ball over the wall and in to give the visitors the lead.  Bobby Smith had a goal disallowed, but Colin Bell scored before the break to double the lead.

In the second half, Spurs came back into the match, but they could not break down the City rearguard for the away side's first win of the season.

06.03.1971

Although Spurs dominated, the finishing let down the team's build up play and Leicester City left White Hart Lane with a draw.


A dull first half saw Roger Morgan head a chance wide and Ray Bunkell shoot over from close in as chances were limited.  

Despite being on top during the second period, Leicester broke away from a Spurs corner and ended the move with a goal to take a shock lead.  Spurs had to wait until the closing stages to grab a point, with Mike Dillon heading home a John Collins free-kick.

20.12.1969

Unbeaten in the League, Spurs crashed out of the Football Combination Cup with a 1-2 defeat at Leicester.


On a pitch that was rolled flat with three inches of snow on it, Leicester were literally more at home that Spurs, going into an early lead, but Tottenham pulled level when Roy Woolcott scored from a Jimmy Neighbour cross. Then, just before half-time, Spurs conceded a penalty, but Ken Hancock saved the spot-kick.
 

With the game tight and well-contested, it was a last minute goal that won the tie for the Foxes.
