02.05.1998

Spurs came into this game knowing that only a win would leave them safe from relegation.  With David Ginola striking a shot against a post and then with Tottenham going one up through a Ferdinand shot in the 18th minute that converted Anderton's cross, they then went 1-2 down when Peter Fear who hadn't scored for over a year hit two - the first a twenty-five yard volley in the 22nd minute.  The Dons midfielder powered home his second from close range on the half hour.

Jurgen Klinsmann got Spurs back into it before half time with a near post finish to Ginola's low left wing cross and Spurs had a man extra seven minutes after half time when Ben Thatcher (later to sign for Tottenham) wildly lunged at Allan Nielsen and was sent off.  

The extra space afforded to Spurs was used to good effect with good passing and Klinsmann scored three more before creating a goal for Moussa Saib to round things off with his only goal in Spurs colours.   After 55 minutes, Berti pounced on a McAllister mistake and fed Jurgen to hit the square pass past Sullivan, then he completed his hat-trick when Ferdinand headed on Walker's 58th minute clearance and Klinsmann powered the ball home low into the net.  A drilled shot into the corner of the net two minutes later grabbed the German striker his fourth and then he turned provider, slipping a back-heeled pass through the Wimbledon defence to leave Saib the opportunity hit shoot in off the post for the sixth.

Although there was a mathematical chance that Tottenham could still go down, the performance in this game ensured their safety.

27.09.1997 The game finished 0-0, but Tottenham had most of the opportunities to score in this Premier League match.  Ginola and Dominguez tormented the Dons defence, creating openings for Ferdinand, Vega, Armstrong, Clemence and Nielsen to score, with the Portuguese winger also going close.

The only chances made by the visitors came when Hughes hit the side-netting and Carl Cort shot wide form a good position.  Ruel Fox hit the post with a low shot, but the one time the ball went in the net, Cort was disappointed to see it chalked off for offside.  Michael Hughes went close on two occasions while Walker saved well from Ekoku.  However, the deadlock was not broken and a point each was the end result.

05.04.1997 Jason Dozzell's second half header (and what turned out to be his last Spurs goal) from an Andy Sinton corner was enough to give Spurs the win in this Premier League match.  It came in a match that Tottenham had dominated with Nielsen and Dozzell also having goals chalked off by the referee.  Sullivan kept out Sheringham, Rosenthal and Dozzell, while Campbell and Sinton also went close.

In addition, Teddy Sheringham and Jason Dozzell also rattled the woodwork of the Wimbledon goal as Spurs kept their first clean sheet in the league against the Dons, thanks to a good save from Walker, who stopped Dean Holdsworth after good work from Leonhardsen.

04.09.1996 Coming into the game without a goal or a point, it was some surprise when Wimbledon beat Spurs by a single goal in this Premier League match.  

Rory Allen made his debut coming on for injured debutant Allan Nielsen at half-time, as Spurs were under-strength for this trip to Selhurst Park.  A third minute goal proved too much to come back from as Ardley's cross was cleared back to him and his second effort was headed in by Robbie Earle.

Ian Walker did well to tip Vinnie Jones' drive over the bar and then did well to keep out Efan Ekoku's effort with the help of the post.  Spurs went close when Anderton's half-volley grazed a post and things were made easier when Jones was dismissed after an hour for a second yellow card.  Sullivan kept out Sinton and Nethercott, while Rosenthal could not keep his effort on target, as the home side did enough to deny Tottenham.

24.11.1993 Nick Barmby's fifth minute opener came about after David Howells had crafted the opportunity.  Losing Gary Mabbutt with a fractured skull in the 7th minute, Spurs battled against the odds, but Wimbledon drew level in the 71st minute, when Dean Holdsworth headed in.  However, Howells nearly got a winner when he hit an 86th minute shot that hit the post and bounced to safety.

01.05.1993 Another match that finished all square in the Premier League in this season, as Spurs were held 1-1 at White Hart Lane by WImbeldon. 

A 38th minute goal by Darren Anderton put Tottenham ahead in the derby, when Hans Segers kicked the ball straight to the Spurs midfielder and he ran 40 yards to strike the ball low into the net.  Tottenham's cause was assisted by Brian McAllister's red card awarded for an elbow in Paul Allen's face, but the side was not able to make the extra man count.

But Spurs were pegged back by a strike from Robbie Earle after 62 minutes.  The midfielder looked off-side when the ball was played through and his shot hit the post before rolling in past Ian Walker

14.02.1993 Spurs' three goal first half blast shocked Wimbledon and gave them a mountain to climb, although they did stage a second half comeback in this FA Cup Fifth Round tie.

Neil Ruddock's cross to the far post provided the opportunity for Nicky Barmby to head back across goal and Darren Anderton beat Hans Segers at his near post to give Tottenham the lead.  Then two goals in three late first half minutes gave Spurs an unassailable lead.  An Anderton corner was headed on by Ruddock, with Teddy Sheringham coming in to finish it off with a header with 44 minutes gone, but two minutes into injury time at the end of the first period, a Ruddock free-kick fell to Anderton on the right wing and his cross picked out Barmby on the penalty spot, who flung himself at the ball, heading it into the top corner to make it 3-0.

Wimbledon made a fight of the game in the second half, as you might have expected, with Gerard Dobbs hooking home when a high ball was headed on in the 64th minute, with a second goal coming right at the end of the game, when substitute Steve Cotterill met a left wing cross at the far post with his head, but the effort was saved, although he managed to bundle the ball over the line for an injury time consolation goal, with Spurs going through 3-2.

25.10.1992 A 37th minute opener for Wimbledon by former Spurs striker Terry Gibson was wiped out by substitute Nicky Barmby's equaliser early in the second period at Selhurst Park.  

A long ball forward saw John Fashanu out in a harsh challenge on Ian Walker as he came out for the ball, with the Wimbledon man playing the ball in for Terry Gibson to net from close range.  No foul was awarded and Walker was replaced by Erik Thorstvedt.

However, despite the set-back, Tottenham came back with a goal created by Teddy Sheringham's cross that found sub Nick Barmby free at the far post to score witha  header, despite protests from Hans Segers that he had saved the ball on the goal-line.

21.9.1991 Gary Lineker's four goal haul helped Spurs overcome a spirited Wimbledon performance.

Tottenham went a goal down after just five minutes, with Bergsson bringing down McGee and Fashanu hitting home the spot-kick.  Six minutes later, Durie's long throw was volleyed home with great power by Lineker and a penalty for a foul in the box gave the Spurs striker his second on 32 minutes.  A deep run by Samways beat the Dons' offside trap and he slotted home after going past Segers with ease.

It took only a minute of the second half for Gary to complete his hat-trick heading home Nayim's corner flicked on by Durie at the near post and then a link-up between Samways and Nayim gave Lineker the opportunity to curl the ball in from a narrow angle in the 56th minute.  Although Alan Cork and Micky Bennett scored late on, the score-line flattered the home side at the finish.

06.11.1985 Wimbledon travelled to White Hart Lane for a League Cup Third Round tie, but  found Spurs in unforgiving mood.

Both sides had chances in the first half of attacking play, but it was only in the 56th minute that Gary Mabbutt rose to head home Glenn Hoddle's free-kick.  Then the second goal followed soon after when David Leworthy netted from close range to seal the win and to see Spurs through to Round 4.
