Danny Maddix was awarded a testimonial between the two sides he played for the most.  So Spurs travelled to Loftus Road to meet QPR.

Not only was it a chance for Maddix to see his old team in action, but Garry Francis was pitting his management skills against his old club, as was striker Peter Crouch, who had joined Rangers in the close season.  Les Ferdinand made a nostalgic return to Loftus Road for Spurs.

Sherwood set up a chance for Ferdinand in the 23rd minute, which he powered a shot past Harper in the home goal and then there were openings for Anderton, Iversen, Stephen Clemence and Ramon Vega to add to the score.  However, Spurs had to wait until the 61st minute and then a deflection took Tim Sherwood's shot past the QPR keeper to make it 0-2 and that was how it ended.

Teams :

08.10.1994 A 38th minute clash between Kevin Scott and Les Ferdinand, which ended with both players being red-carded in an incident which was nothing more than a case of handbags, was the main talking point of this clash between the two London clubs at the Lane.

Right on half time, a header from Andy Impey gave Rangers a 1-0 lead and although Spurs dominated the second half, they had trouble beating QPR keeper Tony Roberts. He plunged to the ground to divert Jurgen Klinsmann's 53rd header away from goal and then managed to get a touch on Nick Barmby's header a quarter of an hour later to take it past the post.

However, with eleven minutes left, Klinsmann knocked the ball down in the box and Barmby was first to it to lift it over Roberts from six yards out to earn a 1-1 draw.

27.02.1993 Spurs eased to a comfortable 3-0 lead but QPR put in a late rally to give Tottenham a worrying last couple of minutes.

Spurs could have taken a very early lead, when Darren Anderton's corner ended with Gary Mabbutt being brought down for a penalty, but Teddy Sheringham's spot-kick was saved by Tony Roberts.  Sheringham redeemed himself in the eighth minute, with a header from an Anderton free-kick, with a second goal for the Spurs striker coming in the 34th minute after good work from Paul Allen, Vinny Samways and Anderton on the left wing set him up for a near post header that went through Roberts.

Just after the hour, Darren Anderton's run saw him hold off the challenge of Clive Wilson and drive a 15 yard shot under the Rangers' keeper to make it 3-0.  But QPR came back with two goals in two minutes to shake Tottenham's confidence.  Darren Peacock headed in a free-kick from the right in the 87th minute, then Les Ferdinand produced a cross that was headed in by Devon White a minute later to give Spurs a shock that saw them hold out for the remaining couple of minutes.

03.10.1992 Although Spurs took the lead at Loftus Road, QPR came back to win this Premier League match 4-1.

Nicky Barmby took the ball off David Bardsley and slipped it inside for Teddy Sheringham to slide the ball past Ludek Miklosko in the Rangers goal.

However, the second half was a totally different matter, with Ian Holloway lashing a Ray Wilkins cross down into the ground and over the diving Ian Walker to equalise.  The home side went ahead when Wilkins met Andy Sinton's cross with a diving header which was extended when Andy Impey's right wing cross was played back into the path of Gary Penrice by Sinton and the striker slid home to make it 3-1.

The turnaround was completed when Dennis Bailey passed the ball in for Les Ferdinand, who stepped over it allowing Penrice to smash home QPR's fourth goal.

Ex-Spur Mark Falco got the opener before Trevor Francis made it two in the 32nd minute, but after 53 minutes, Paul Gascoigne netted for Spurs.  Then, with 15 minutes remaining, Chris Waddle scored the equaliser to make it 2-2.

Simon Stainrod had taken an opportunity to put QPR ahead, but two goals from Mark Falco saw Spurs assume control.  Steve Archibald's 71st minute strike made it 3-1, but with 15 minutes left Terry Fenwick, then a Rangers defender, brought the score to 3-2, which is the way it ended.

Garth Crooks and Tony Galvin gave Spurs a 2-0 half time lead, but Simon Stainrod pulled a goal back minutes after the second half started to make the game nervy for Tottenham, but when Steve Archibald set up Glenn Hoddle to finish with a 84th minute shot, Spurs ensured their passage to meet Hull City in the next round.

14.04.1979 Spurs were at home to QPR and the First Division match ended 1-1 on a sunny spring afternoon.

John Pratt took a pass into him on the edge of the box, turned and hit his shot just over the bar before the same player brought a good save from the keeper when Villa's long corner to the far post was nodded back and the midfielder's 12 yard header was tipped over.

A questionable onside decision saw Dave Clement played through and he rounded Daines and slotted home in 14 minutes and 15 seconds.
Within a minute it was 1-1 when Hoddle played a 1-2 with Jones and dinked the ball over the QPR defence for Steve Perryman to control the ball with his stomach and take it past Richardson in the same movement to knock the ball in from five yards out.

John Pratt's cross was just missed by Hoddle, four yards out, but there had been an infringement. Then at the other end Walsh missed an open goal with a diving header but was spared that embarrassment as he was offside.

Hoddle played in Villa and a nonchalant shot forced Richardson to tip the ball past the post.  As Rangers pressed for a second, Don McAllister had to head away a chip into the goalmouth from Paul Goddard in an incident that saw Barry Daines sustain a groin injury, which required lengthy treatment from physio Mike Varney.

Into the second half, Miller half headed out a cross and Gerry Francis slashed the ball over the bar, while play moved to the other end and Richardson had to make a good block as Villa turned Howe and shot on goal. The keeper did well to come out and intercept a through ball meant for Hoddle, but he then passed straight to Chris Jones on the left and his first time shot just faded away from goal after shooting from 30 yards out on the left. Francis burst through and put Goddard in, but his shot was well held by the injured Daines.

A good move by Taylor and Hoddle put Pratt in on the right side of the box, but his shot was deflected just wide for a corner. Hoddle was also the architect for a right wing cross that Jones glanced wide, as the sun shone down on a beautiful April day.

09.04.1977

Tottenham's opening game of the Easter programme gave them a boost in their attempt to retain their First Division status with a 3-0 home win over QPR.

Although Rangers went close a few times in the early part of the game, but it was Spurs who took the lead.  Peter Taylor's goal that opened the scoring came at the Park Lane end, with a low driven shot from the left beating keeper and defender in the six yard box.

In the second half, Chris Jones' double helped Tottenham to both points.  His first came from eight yards out with a shot from the left of the goal following Ralph Coates' cross and he made it 3-0 with an effort that went past Phil Parkes, who rushed out to meet him as he broke towards the QPR box and a covering defender could not get back to clear it before it went over the line.

Steve Perryman was making his 300th league appearance for Spurs.

14.02.1976

QPR's best season in the First Division was aided by a convincing second half performance that lead to a 3-0 win at White Hart Lane.  

The first half was nothing to write home about with neither side managing a shot in anger, but Rangers struck in the 55th minute with Bowles heading on a Parkes kick out and Don Givens finishing with aplomb.  Just after the hour, Masson's free-kick found Francis racing in to swing the ball home and the future Spurs manager ran half the length of the field to shoot home the third on 74 minutes.

Parkes was called into action as Spurs tried to gain some succour, but his endeavours denied Tottenham and the intervention of the goalpost stopped Osgood gaining some consolation.

21.12.1974 Spurs lost out by the odd goal in three to Queens Park Rangers at the Lane.

Queens Park Rangers enjoyed a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane thanks to two first half goals from Stan Bowles.

Five minutes into the game John Beck allowed the ball to run to Dave Clement, who made a strong run down the line.  His deep cross was headed over Martin Peters and Terry Naylor by Dave Thomas to pick out Stan Bowles, who volleyed into the net.  The second goal came from a penalty conceded by Mike England, who pulled back Don Givens, with Bowels converting from the spot.

The second half was played more in the Rangers half, with Spurs pressing hard to get back into the match, but although Spurs got a goal in the second half with John Duncan scoring, the visitors almost extended their lead, with Givens and Bowles both breaking forward but missing good opportunities.

08.10.1973 Spurs exited the League Cup at the Second Round stage with a 0-1 defeat at Loftus Road.

Rangers played a good game and were well worth their win, secured by a Don Givens shot, deflected in by Mike England in the 31st minute.   Although Spurs staged a late rally, they were unable to get an equaliser to take the game to a replay, as Gilzean's hooked effort went just past the post and Peters had a shot charged down by two Rangers defenders.

15.02.1969 There was a frosty reception for recently signed Roger Morgan as he returned to Loftus Road, but it was only the freezing conditions that conspired to produce the chill.  Most players on both teams wore gloves with Greaves donning fingerless fawn mittens.

Rangers were still near the bottom of the table and although both teams put on a good display of football in difficult conditions, the score was 0-0 at the break.  The frosty pitch made errors likely and when Les Allen got past our defence, he put in a cross for Frank Clarke to head QPR into the lead soon after the second half started.  It was late in the game that things swung Tottenham's way, with Mullery's free-kick being cleared and Morgan putting the ball back into the area for Jimmy Greaves to knock the ball past the keeper.  The home side claimed Greaves had handled in the act of scoring, but the referee waved away their complaints.

Rangers almost won the game at the death with a shot from Ian Morgan (twin of Roger) being kicked off the line by Cyril Knowles to preserve the draw.

Phil Beal's only senior goal for Tottenham helped win this First Division encounter for Spurs at White Hart Lane.

Bottom of the table Rangers went 1-0 down when David Jenkins scored for Spurs and Beal rifled one in from distance to double the lead before Dave Clement pulled a goal back with a firm header.  Frank Clarke gave the visitors heart with an equaliser from the penalty spot but Alan Gilzean denied them even a point with a well struck shot.

01.04.1950 The visit to Loftus Road in the Second Division saw Spurs win to take the title and secure their return to Division One.

26.11.1949 Tottenham eased to a 3-0 win over QPR as they maintained their assault on the Division Two title.  An early header from Les Bennett put Tottenham ahead and then he took Eddie Baily's pass to slot past QPR keeper Reg Allen to make it 2-0 a few minutes later.  Baily was the architect for the second half Spurs goal from Bill Nicholson, which he placed into the corner of the net.

Rangers almost forced Alf Ramsey and Harry Clarke into own goals as they hastily cleared the ball and Harry Woodward, an ex-Spurs player and captain for the day, brought a fine save out of Ted Ditchburn to preserve his clean sheet.

12.03.1949 A workman-like game ended in a 0-0 draw at Loftus Road.

Harry Woodward, the Tottenham centre-half, was struck down by a first half free-kick from Arthur Jefferson and suffered concussion, so had to be carried off.  Ironic that the match programme surmised in an article when substitutes would be allowed !!

16.10.1948 A simply worked goal was enough to take the points for Spurs in this home match with QPR in the Second Division.  Len Duquemin played a square pass to Baily, who struck the ball in despite the desperate effort by Arthur Jefferson to stop it going over the goal-line.

Bill Nicholson was outstanding in defence that day and Sid Tickridge also did his bit in clearing the ball off the line when Cyril Hatton looked like he would net the equaliser.

09.09.1899 Newcomers to the Southern League (Division 1), QPR travelled to North London for their second match (the first against Brighton United was to be expunged after the South Coast club resigned from the league).

3,000 Rangers fans swelled the crowd for the London derby and Spurs played the first half kicking into the sun.

It was an end to end first half, with the Spurs attack linking well, but being denied by good defending by the QPR back line.  When they got through, they found Clutterbuck in the Rangers goal in good form, saving a number of shots on goal, but Cameron, Copeland and Smith should have done better with chances they had to score.  Rangers’ played a longer game and the Spurs full backs of Tait and Erentz were able to cope with this, especially having Clawley behind them to provide a pair of safe hands.

With the half backs preventing QPR moves building up, it was Spurs who had the best of the first half, although the visitors were hampered by full back Knowles picking up a knee injury that he had to battle on with.  Tottenham also found ex-Woolwich Arsenal defender McConnell playing well, with a good display of tackling.

The only goal of the game was created by Kirwan down the left wing and his cross to Copeland, who drew the goalkeeper and then put the ball across to Smith, who scored.  With less than 15 minutes left, Spurs saw out the game to great acclaim.
