25.09.1991 An early change and a late goal shocked Spurs in this Rumbelows Cup second round first leg tie.

Starting the game without the inured Gary Lineker and Gudni Bergsson (away on international duty), Pat van den Hauwe's early off the ball injury meant that John Moncur had to come on and the rest of the team be reorganised.  Raynor seized on makeshift centre-half David Howells' back pass and forced Walker to save in the fifth minute, then the Spurs keeper had to be alert to stop Ford and Coughlin's efforts.

John Hendry replaced the injured Durie at half-time and he had Tottenham's best opportunity with a 52nd minute shot that Freestone in the Swansea goal saved.  Samways drew saves from the keeper with long range drives either side of Hendry's attempt and Nayim fired a shot narrowly over the top too.

Ian Walker nimbly dived to save Williams' 71st minute pile-driver, but with two minutes to go, he was left with no opportunity to stop Swansea City captain Jimmy Gilligan's 25-yarder that flew into the top corner of the goal.

06.09.1978 The League Cup Second Round replay caused a real shock as Spurs crashed to Swansea at White Hart Lane.

The aerial attack that Swansea rained down on Tottenham and paid dividends with player-manager John Toshack heading in a corner from Nigel Stevenson to give the Swans a eighteenth minute lead.  Danny Bartley's 37th minute cross was nodded in by Jeremy Charles and it stood at 2-0 at the break.

Ardiles and Taylor linked well to provide a 65th minute opportunity for Villa to side-foot in a goal for Spurs, but a Smith free-kick was flicked on by Alan Waddle for Alan Curtis to force the ball home to take them through to Round Three.

Teams : 
Spurs -  Daines, McAllister, Naylor, Lacy, Perryman, Hoddle, Ardiles, McNab, Villa, Taylor, Duncan
Subs not used :

29.08.1978

A draw seemed a good result as our Argentinian imports experienced British cup football for the first time.  Former Liverpool "hard-man" Tommy Smith was dismissive of the ability of Ardiles and Villa to settle and was determined to rough them up from the start - his second minute "challenge" put Ossie out of the match later, with Armstrong replacing him. 

Robbie James scored for the home side just after six minutes and it was James, who set up Jeremy Charles for a near post finish just before half-time to make it 2-0 to the home side.  Tottenham hit back in the second period, with Hoddle flighting in a free-kick that Alan Waddle handled, leading to Hoddle converting the penalty and then Gerry Armstrong scoring a leveller in the 65th minute.  Spurs almost grabbed a late winner, but Hoddle's effort was ruled out by the ref.

Teams : 
Swansea City -  Smith, Waddle, Charles, James.
Spurs -  Daines, McAllister, Naylor, Armstrong, Perryman, Hoddle, Ardiles, McNab, Villa, Taylor, Duncan

09.09.1970 Tottenham eased through this League Cup Second Round tie with three goals without reply.  

Martin Peters opened the scoring in the 22nd minute with a header and on the half-hour, Roger Morgan also scored with a header, following up Peters' header which had bounced back off the crossbar.  It was left to Steve Perryman to wrap up the scoring with a third, running through to shoot home as the game drew to a close.

Spurs -  Peters, Morgan, Perryman
