02.03.1985 With a goal against his former team, Garth Crooks gave Tottenham the points with the only goal of the game at the Victoria Ground.

A back-pass to the Stoke keeper Barry Siddall saw him miss his kick, allowing Crooks to walk the ball into an empty net and he looked sheepish both at the nature of the goal and it being against his old club.  Following this match, the Potters failed to pick up another point and were relegated as the bottom club in the First Division.

27.10.1984 In what turned out to be a relegation season for the Potteries side, Spurs ran out 4-0 winners in this First Division clash at White Hart Lane.

Within 11 minutes, Tottenham had scored twice through Clive Allen and John Chiedozie and the sending off of afro-haired defender George Berry after he struck Mark Falco off the ball left Stoke a difficult task for the remainder of the game.

They held out until the 75th minute, when Clive Allen added his second of the game and when emergency centre half Brendan O'Callaghan fouled Falco in the area, Graham Roberts stepped up to convert the spot-kick to make the final score 4-0.

29.12.1979 Two familiar faces on the Stoke City side could not prevent Tottenham running out 1-0 winners on Terry Gibson's debut at the Lane.

Ray Evans had left Spurs to join the Potters and striker Garth Crooks who soon be making the move to London when he was snapped up by Keith Burkinshaw in 1980.   Gibson was using his dogged physical presence to disturb the experienced City back line and he had a role in the goal, which was struck home by John Pratt to take the points in this First Division meeting.

22.03.1978 Stoke shocked Spurs at White Hart Lane by taking the lead through Garth Crooks in this Second Division clash at White Hart Lane.

29.10.1977 Spurs were faced with an early barrage from Stoke, but weathered the storm to take both points at the Victoria Ground.

Spurs almost let a goal in right at the start of the match, but Barry Daines reacted well to keep out Stoke striker Garth Crooks on two occasions and David Gregory also.  Against the run of play, Gerry Armstrong gave Spurs a 29th minute lead when he converted a flick on by John Pratt from Peter Taylor's corner.

At the start of the second half, Terry Conroy wasted a good chance and Daines was again called upon to save from a swerving shot from Steve Waddington, which went for a corner.  The Spurs goal was under siege for a few minutes, but following a save from Paul Richardson, Daines launched the ball up-field for Ian Moores to set up Armstrong to shoot Tottenham's second goal after 61 minutes.

Crooks pulled one back for the home side with a neat header from Richardson's cross in the 73rd minute, but Glenn Hoddle delivered a corner onto John Pratt's head to score the third Spurs goal past keeper Roger Jones that put the game beyond Stoke's reach.

23.04.1977 Spurs held Stoke City to a 0-0 draw at the Victoria Ground when a win was more vital to avoid relegation.

A good first half gave hope of a victory, but the Potters were revitalised after the break. They were indebted to Peter Shilton at the end though, when Hoddle took the ball off a defender and the keeper's dive at his feet robbed him of a scoring opportunity.

Stoke put in a final effort to find a winner, but could not breach the Spurs defence.

02.11.1974 Spurs fought out a 2-2 draw at the Victoria Ground with Stoke City in this First Division meeting.

An early goal shocked Spurs, when Geoff Salmons scored an eighth minute opener, but John Duncan turned the game around before the break. Ralph Coates' cross had been back-heeled into Duncan's path to slide in to fire the equaliser and within five minutes, he had struck a left foot shot for the second after he had been set up by Martin Chivers.

There was still time for Jimmy Greenhoff to pull Stoke level at 2-2 with 36 minutes on the clock. Despite the home team exerting a lot of pressure on the Spurs defence, they could not break through and nearly got caught on the break when Ray Evans' right wing run produced a cross that was just a little too far ahead of Martin Chivers, who was unable to get a telling touch on the ball.  It was Chivers who nearly made it 3-2 later, when he struck a left foot shot just over the bar from eight yards out.

A 2-1 win for Spurs over Stoke City at White Hart Lane was achieved after the visitors had gone ahead in the match.

The Potters took the lead through a goal stabbed home in the goalmouth by John Ritchie in the second half, but Spurs worked their way back into the game with Mike England hitting the crossbar with a header. Then, following a free-kick, Ray Evans struck a powerful drive from outside the penalty area to level the scores and within two minutes, John Pratt headed Spurs ahead with what turned out to be the winning goal.

14.03.1973 For over eighty minutes, this First Division match looked to be heading for a goal-less draw.  Then with little time remaining, Jimmy Pearce got Tottenham a goal ahead, knocking home Martin Chivers' flick on Cyril Knowles' cross, but Stoke came back in the time left before the final whistle with Jimmy Greenhoff netting the equaliser at the death.

Spurs were ahead with goals from John Pratt, when he dived in to head Ray Evans' right foot drive from the edge of the box  and then Alan Gilzean, with a powerful header past Gordon Banks from ten yards out, before Stoke hit back, with John Ritchie scoring to reduce the deficit, although Pratt added his second of the game to make it 3-1 at the interval.  Ritchie hit the net again after half-time and then Ralph Coates put Spurs two ahead once more, taking a pass from Cyril Knowles to fire home, before Alan Bloor scored to make it a tense finish, but Tottenham held on for a 4-3 win.

30.10.1971 Two John Mahoney goals saw Stoke City beat Spurs at the Victoria Ground and take two First Division points.

There was little of note that happened in the first half when Spurs were in the ascendancy.  While Tottenham had a lot of possession, they failed to break through Stoke's four man midfield and in the first ten minutes of the second half, they were hit by two goals from John Mahoney. The first came from a long range shot that caught a deflection off a leg to get through and the second goal came when the ball was not cleared by the Spurs defence and Mahoney capitalised.

Spurs did make a bid to get back into the match with Pratt setting Chivers away only to be stopped by Gordon Banks before Martin Peters shot narrowly wide. Jimmy Pearce's shot was hacked away and then Chivers' header was well saved by Banks, as he fell backwards.

24.10.1970 A twelfth Division One match unbeaten was secured by a 3-0 victory for fourth place Spurs over Stoke City at White Hart Lane.

Two Martin Chivers goals and one from Alan Gilzean in the first half wrapped up the victory over the Potters.  Joe Kinnear's cross from the right was headed on by Martin Peters to Chivers, who slid the ball home and then Peters' run was ended with a ball into the box for the striker, who went in for the ball, but it dropped loose for Alan Gilzean to hook it home past Gordon Banks at the Park Lane end.  Tottenham's third goal saw Chiv ease Denis Smith off the ball on the left on the halfway line, out-pace the defender and then curl the ball around Gordon Banks from just outside the box.

Stoke tried to battle back, but substitute Willie Stevenson broke his leg in the 57th minute, leaving the Potters with ten men and little opportunity to get anything out of the match.

The half-time interval featured a stand-up row between Bill Nicholson and Alan Mullery, when the manager criticised Martin Chivers in the dressing room, despite the two goals he had scored in a match that saw Jimmy Neighbour come on as a substitute for his debut.

Terry Venables played a free-kick into the area for Mike England to head home and the lead was doubled when Jimmy Robertson powered a shot at goal that Gordon Banks could only help on it's way into the net.

Just after half-time, Alan Mullery's cross was headed in by Cliff Jones to hand Spurs a much needed victory.

Terry Venables had scored to put Spurs ahead, but Harry Burrows equalised in the 18th minute and then scored what proved to be the winner before the interval.  Spurs were not helped by a knee injury to Jimmy Greaves that saw him replaced by substitute Eddie Clayton, with Mike England moving into attack to replace Greaves.

Spurs travelled to Stoke City and returned with a 6-1 away victory in the bag.

Sid McClellan put Tottenham into an early lead, with Les Bennett scoring a second in the 24th minute from a corner. Left winger Harry Oscroft had a chance to get the Potters back into the match, with a penalty awarded to the home side, but he put the ball wide to leave Spurs still 2-0 ahead.

In contrast, a penalty given to Tottenham before the break was knocked home by Alf Ramsey to make the score 3-0 at the interval.

After the restart, Sonny Walters scored the Spurs fourth goal and Les Medley grabbed two to make it 6-0 before Oscroft did get the ball in the net to get Stoke a consolation at the end.

07.01.1950 Spurs travelled to the Victoria Ground for a FA Cup Third Round tie, which they won 1-0 against Stoke City.

It was a bit of a giant-killing, with Spurs being in the Second Division and Stoke the First, with Bill Nicholson providing the cross for Eddie Baily to head in for the only goal of the game in the second half.
Baily had been inspired, with mazy dribbles and good link-up play with Ron Burgess.

Spurs suffered a 0-5 reverse in their first competitive professional match at Stoke in the First Round of the FA Cup.  While having turned professional, the team only had two pros, who had been quickly signed up, with the other nine members of the side being amateurs.

Stoke's fast start saw the Tottenham back line holding firm, but an A. Maxwell shot on the half hour gave Stoke the lead, which was doubled when W. Maxwell scored shortly after.  Dickson added a third before the break and the home side went on to run up five goals in total with second half strikes from Dickson and Maxwell, although Spurs put up a good display in defeat.
