19.10.1997 Spurs took a 3-0 lead, but were pegged back in this Premier League meeting at the Lane. 

It was a fifth minute Jose Dominguez shot from long range that flew past Kevin Pressman in the Wednesday goal for his first in Spurs' colours.  A corner fell to Campbell, who helped the ball on for Chris Armstrong to finish in the 39th minute.  Right on half-time, Fenn and Vega created a shooting opportunity for David Ginola to curl a shot into the goal to make it 3-0. 

The second half saw more openings, but Tottenham could not apply the finishing touch, which allowed Wednesday to get back into the match.  In the 71st minute, Wayne Collins scrambled the ball in from close range and then Paolo Di Canio shot six minutes from the end made it a tense ending, but Tottenham held out for the points.

09.04.1997 Mark Pembridge had the first chance in this Premier League meeting at Hillsborough, but a long range rocket from Peter Atherton in the 18th minute, Wednesday took the lead after Carbone's free-kick was laid on by David Hirst and Andy Booth.  Sheringham, Fox, Sinton and Rosenthal all had shots but it was Dean Austin's long cross that was headed down by Sheringham for Nielsen to steer home past Kevin Pressman.

Only a double reaction save by Walker kept Pembridge's shots out and even he could not prevent Wednesday taking the win in the 69th minute, as Booth shot home Carbone's pass.  Spurs took the game to Wednesday right to the end and Rosenthal went closest with a late header that brushed the post.

Sheringham hit the post and Fox, Iversen, Howells and Sinton all had good openings to score, but Ian Walker had to be alert to make a good stop from Andy Booth and Regi Blinker shot wide in the closing minutes when well-placed.

20.08.1994 The arrival of a new superstar at Tottenham was heralded by the goal from Jurgen Klinsmann and a novel goal celebration poking fun at his media given reputation for diving.

A 19th minute goal from Teddy Sheringham gave Spurs the lead, when he directed the ball past Pressman after taking Anderton's cross in space in the box.  That became 2-0 when Sheringham returned the compliment with a return ball to Anderton to run in the area and slide it into the net.

Wednesday weren't finished and drew level through a Petrescu goal, taking Sheridan's volley and coolly stroking home and then when Colin Calderwood raced back to deny Bart-Williams breaking into the box, but only succeeded in slamming it past Walker to make it 2-2 in the 66th minute.

With nineteen minutes remaining, a long ball was flicked on by Sheringham to Barmby, who took the ball to the edge of the area and shot between Des Walker's legs and low past Pressman into the bottom corner of the net.

Spurs were now in the ascendancy and were passing the ball with supreme confidence.  They worked the ball through the midfield and out to Anderton on the right wing, where he produced a peach of a cross to the far post.  There, Klinsmann leapt and powered a header past the goalie to open his Spurs account and was joined by his team-mates in his "Dive" celebration.  Unfortunately, he had to leave the field shortly after following a clash of heads with Des Walker, but he was hailed the hero.

The home side continued to press and were rewarded with a third goal - the goal of the game - when David Hirst hit a screamer of a volley from 18 yards that ripped into the roof of the net, but it was to no avail as Tottenham took three points to wipe out half of the FA imposed reduction.

05.02.1994 With Owls keeper Kevin Pressman in outstanding form, Spurs were denied in this game at White Hart Lane, in which Wednesday ran out 3-1 winners.

Central defender Simon Coleman's far post finish to a 16th minute free-kick gave Sheffield Wednesday the lead before slack defending handed Mark Bright two goals, leaving Spurs a big margin to close.  Ronnie Rosenthal headed Darren Anderton's 65th minute corner in from 18 yards to get one goal back on his debut, but Pressman athletically stopped efforts from Sedgley, Barmby and Rosenthal to keep the points safe for the visitors.

16.01.1993 Spurs fell to a 0-2 defeat at White Hart Lane in a Premier League match against Sheffield Wednesday, who scored two second half goals.

Luck seemed to favour the Owls, as John Harkes was tackled on the edge of the area, with the ball falling kindly for Mark Bright to slot the ball past Erik Thorstvedt to give the home team the lead in the 54th minute. The second goal was all David Hirst's own work, as he picked up a long bal o the right wing, before cutting inside to unleash a shot that flew in from the edge of the box with just two minutes remaining.

02.01.1971 This FA Cup Third Round paired Spurs with Sheffield Wednesday, who had been relegated to Division Two at the end of the previous season and the game was almost postponed, with fog lifting from the ground just before the match kicked off.

A Martin Peters goal, finishing good work on the left allowed Spurs the lead, but it didn't last too long as David Sunley pulled Wednesday level with a header after only a few minutes had elapsed.

Tottenham scored through an Alan Mullery penalty, two from Alan Gilzean and Martin Peters, while Wednesday got one back through David Sunley.  Alan Gilzean glanced Steve Perryman's shot into the net past keeper Peter Springett to make it 2-1 before half-time.

Into the second half, Spurs went further ahead when Peter Springett brought down Martin Chivers in the area and Alan Mullery stepped up to convert, after his penalty-kick was saved. A late goal to give Gilzean his second of the match wrapped up a 4-1 win.

18.11.1961 Travelling to Sheffield Wednesday, fourth placed Spurs played out a goal-less draw at Hillsborough.

The game was fast-paced and the home team put Tottenham under pressure for periods of the match, forcing Bill Brown and his defence to work hard to keep the Owls out.

Home keeper Ron Springett had to be alert early on to keep out Cliff Jones' shot, but the ball ran loose to Les Allen, but he couldn't keep his shot down and it went over the bar.

Late in the game, John White went close and Peter Johnson had to head the ball off the goal-line.

17.04.1961 Spurs were top of the table and expected to take the title with a stylish win in this First Division match with their closest rivals, Sheffield Wednesday.  However, the Yorkshire team were not that willing to roll over and a Don Megson goal gave the Owls the lead, flying in the face of the expected scripting for the game.

However, a long ball forward was won by Terry Dyson, getting there ahead of Peter Swan and the winger headed on to Bobby Smith.  The striker made for the box, but found Megson in his way, so delicately lobbed the ball over the defender's head, ran around him and volleyed the ball home past Springett in the Wednesday goal.

Drawing Spurs level, the goal inspired the team and within a minute, the match and the title were won.  Les Allen netted the second Tottenham goal and the celebrations began.

28.04.1951 In the Spurs “Push and Run” side's Second Division title win of 1949-50, It was Sheffield Wednesday who took the runners-up spot.

The following season saw the teams have differing fortunes.  Spurs were near the top of the First Division from New Year onwards, while Wednesday were close to the bottom of the table and their visit to White Hart Lane came with just two matches left.  Both teams needed the points for different reasons, with a win for Tottenham that would give them the title for the first time. 

Spurs had stuttered in the run-in with Huddersfield Town winning at the Lane and Middlesbrough taking a point from Spurs on Tees-side.    

When the match started, inside forward Eddie Baily almost broke through, but was denied by a timely tackle from Norman Curtis, before Wednesday made their attacking intent clear with a cross from Alan Finney picking out Redfearn Froggatt to fire a shot just wide of the mark.  Spurs broke and Len Duquemin struck a shot on goal from 10 yards out, forcing Owls keeper Dave McIntosh to plunge to palm away the ball. 

Wednesday were giving as good as they got and Ted Ditchburn was called into action, keeping out a shot from striker Dennis Woodhead and then diving at Woodhead's feet before he could get a shot away.  Ditchburn was left standing when Walter Rickett put the ball across for Wednesday, but nobody was available to put the ball in, then Froggatt fizzed an effort inches wide. 

Spurs were lacking their usual accuracy in their passing, with only Peter Murphy testing McIntosh, while the visitors once more threatened and Alf Ramsey got back to clear Finney's shot off the goal-line.  The ebb and flow of the game did not stop, with a tricky run up the wing by Les Medley ending with a flicked effort on goal that McIntosh did well to tip it wide. 

An unusual nervousness seemed to be creeping through the Tottenham attack, resulting in good play being spurned in the last third, but with only a minute remaining in the first half, Spurs made a telling attack. 

Ron Burgess was on a strong run that was almost ended by a fearsome tackle by Gerry Henry, but the Welshman managed to nick the ball on to Eddie Baily, wide on the right.  Good movement ahead of him by Duquemin and Medley opened up space for him to run past three Wednesday defenders and then laid the ball off to Medley, in turn finding a pass to Duquemin.  With the keeper coming out and with two full backs bearing down on the Channel Islander, Len showed his goal-scoring ability by reaching the ball before the opposition and prodding it into the net to give Spurs the lead with half a minute remaining. 

The Spurs crowd roared their approval and the team went into the dressing room in good spirits, only to find out that second place Manchester United were leading  Huddersfield Town 3-0.  However, the crowd's buoyant atmosphere and the confidence of a goal scored at a vital psychological time gave Tottenham the filip they needed. 

The second half was almost one-way traffic, with McIntosh keeping Spurs at bay.    Medley put in a cross which hit Curtis' hand, but the ref didn't see it, while the keeper beat out Murphy's pile-driver and then managed to get enough on the ball to take Ramsey's bullet of a shot over the top.  McIntosh was getting anything in the way to prevent Tottenham scoring and his face was put to good use to deny Baily, who hit a powerful shot on target and then produced a fine save to push out Walters' effort that looked as though it might end up in the roof of the net. 

Walters was having little luck and the post kept his next shot out, with Murphy also going close until Curtis popped up to head off his own line.  With time running out, Sheffield Wednesday decided to move further up the pitch to try to salvage something from the match.  Woodhead tested Ditchburn's reflexes and and the forward was through, but when poised to pull the trigger, he slipped and the chance was gone. 

Spurs were happy with keeping possession and when the final whistle was blown, the players were joyous and the crowd erupted, as the two points had sealed the First Division championship for the club for the first time.  Unfortunately, the Duquemin shot that gave Spurs the victory proved damaging to Wednesday, whose relegation was confirmed a week later.

After just ten minutes, Les Bennett opened the scoring for Tottenham and although both sides spurned the opportunity to score from the penalty spot, it was left to Freddie Cox to hit the net, after good work by Spurs in the 32nd minute.  The game disintegrated into a scrappy affair in the second half, which saw neither goal threatened.
