Spurs headed the league table and ran out big winners at Kenilworth Road in this Division Two encounter.

The game had been postponed from the previous Saturday and Spurs were obviously keen to get going as two Glenn Hoddle goals put them ahead.  The midfielder's first was a close range shot at the far post and his second, a trademark curling free-kick around the Luton defensive wall.

A Don McAllister header was unstoppable for the third goal and striker John Duncan netted a rasping volley to complete the Spurs scoring before Luton grabbed a late consolation goal.

Spurs needed to win this match at home to Luton Town to have a chance to staying in the First Division.

A John Duncan goal put Spurs ahead in this tense match, with a shot that beat the grounded Keith Barber in goal and found the net at the Paxton Road end.  The tension heightened when Alan West quickly scored an equaliser for Luton Town. 

With relegation looming for both sides, Tottenham gained a vital two points with a late goal from Alfie Conn that sent the crowd home very happy.  Conn's run saw him take the ball around the keeper to slot the ball into an empty net, thus securing a vital win for Tottenham with just over six minutes remaining.

Martin Chivers and John Aston exchanged goals to earn their sides a point in a 1-1 First Division draw on the first visit to Luton Town since 1960.

Only some good keeping from Luton keeper Keith Barber stopped striker John Duncan from scoring on his debut.  However, Martin Peters and Ralph Coates created a right wing cross to the far post took out the Luton keeper and defenders, leaving Martin Chivers to head home unmarked to give Spurs the lead in the 67th minute.  However, the home side were not to be denied and the Hatters pulled a late equaliser out of the bag when John Aston smashed the ball home.

Tottenham met FA Cup semi-finalists Luton Town at White Hart Lane with both clubs in lowly First Division positions. When Bobby Smith smashed home a left footed shot in the 11th minute, it looked as though Spurs would go on to win the match comfortably. A goal-line clearance in the last minute of the first half by Ken Hawkes dropped kindly to Johnny Brooks, who hit the ball back past the keeper to make it 2-0.

Spurs had to wait until the last minute of the game to add a third, with Terry Medwin's header sealing the win.

Luton keeper Ron Baynham played the second half of the match with his hand bandaged.
