Talk Radio presenter Danny Baker has a theory that it is better for your club to be involve din promotion or relegation at the end of the season, rather than linger in the mid-table no-man’s land of meaningless game.  Well, after having to suffer 90 minutes of this match, I’m not so sure.  It was nerve-wracking stuff from the first minute collision between Baardsen and Holdsworth to the final minute when Saib created space in the box to force a save from Branagan.  It was always going to be edge of the seat stuff because the win was so desperately needed.

Spurs started looking very jittery, allowing Bergsson to go close with a header and Thompson to fire wide, as Bolton gave the defence a rough ride.  Spurs eventually settled and began putting passes together.  Carr’s good run across the box produced an opening for Armstrong, which he poked just wide and it was just before half-time that Tottenham took the lead.  The move started deep in the Spurs half, with Ginola picking up the ball and finding Wilson on the left wing.  His ball into the area saw Nielsen spin away from his marker and hit a shot that despite hitting the post (and looking like it was going to bounce out) went into the net.  Bolton seemed to have the stuffing knocked out of them by this and although they had come out for an equaliser in the second half, they only threatened at the end of the match.

Spurs thought they should have had a penalty when Phillips just got to the ball before he got Ginola and Tottenham were denied further goals when Bergsson headed just past his own post and Branagan was forced into a flying save by Ruel Fox’s shot.  Chris Armstrong’s involvement finished early when he was stretchered off with a dead leg.  At the other end Baardsen frustrated the Trotters with a singer-tip save to push Phillips’ shot around the post and Ginola worked tirelessly, but too often without producing an end result, while Nielsen and Berti run themselves into the ground to provide a foundation for this victory.

I’m just thankful that we didn’t make a pig’s ear of the win over the Trotters in the end.

Spurs had to come from behind to secure a 1-1 Premier League draw at the Reebok.  

A decision to give a penalty for an Edinburgh trip on Nathan Blake gave the home side the opportunity to take the lead in the 20th minute, when Alan Thompson scored the first goal at the new stadium.  Walker faced a tide of efforts from the Trotters and Thompson hit the bar with a firm drive.  Chris Armstrong came on for Paul Mahorn and in the 71st minute, it was his header that finished Ginola’s cross to earn an equaliser.

27.11.1996 Spurs were humiliated 6-1 by Bolton Wanderers at Burnden Park in the League Cup 4th Round.

John McGinlay’s sixth minute free-kick, powered past Ian Walker opened the floodgates for a big defeat for Tottenham.  Although Teddy Sheringham pulled Spurs back level on 13 minutes from another free-kick, it wasn’t long before McGinlay was on the spot again.  He smashed into the net after Garry Taggart had headed on Scott Sellars’ corner with 37 minutes on the clock.  McGinlay then turned provider with an hour gone, when his cross allowed Taggart to head in, then the striker completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot in the 74th minute after a hotly contested penalty was awarded.

The score was 5-1 when Nathan Blake scored in the 79th minute, with David Lee’s 86th minute cross converted by substitute Scott Taylor to round off a night to forget for Spurs with a 1-6 defeat and the Spurs fans were left singing “We want seven !”

23.12.1995 Bolton’s visit to White Hart Lane ended in a 2-2 Premier League draw.

Tottenham went ahead in the 53rd minute with a Teddy Sheringham goal and Chris Armstrong doubled the lead in the 71st minute.  However, the crowd’s response to Nayim’s picture (sitting among the crowd) appearing on the big screen seemed to disturb the team.  Two goals in three minutes from Scott Green (76) and former Spurs defender Gudni Bergsson (78) denied Tottenham a spot in the top three.

22.03.1980 This Division 1 encounter saw Bolton Wanderers win 2-1 at Burnden Park, with goals from Mike Carter and Neil Whatmore, with Chris Jones responding for Tottenham.

It was Carter who gave the Trotters the lead in the 26th minute, bursting past Spurs defenders to fire a left-footed drive past Daines in the Spurs goal.  Whatmore made it 2-0 with 65 minutes gone, but Chris Jones got Spurs back in the game a few minutes after when he headed home a free-kick from Glenn Hoddle.  There were opportunities to salvage a point, but they were mostly off-target.

The home side went ahead in the early stages with a Frank Worthington goal, but half way through the first period, Mark Falco pounced to strike a left footed shot to regain parity on his League debut.

It took until the 62nd minute for Spurs to get their noses in front, when Rocky Villa’s shot flew in off gargantuan central defender Sam Allardyce to make it 2-1.  Ossie Ardiles ran the show for Tottenham and was unlucky to see his “goal” ruled out for offside, but a late goal from defender Jimmy Holmes’ shot wrapped up the win for Spurs.

28.10.1978
Both promoted sides met in the First Division at White Hart Lane and Spurs started like a whirlwind.

Peter Taylor’s run up the line ended with a shot that Jim McDonagh beat out and then Colin Lee and Don McAllister both put good chances over the bar with their head.  Taylor had another shot fly past the post and then some good play saw Steve Perryman lay the ball into Lee’s path and he blasted the ball into the net from outside the box.

Tottenham continued to press and McDonagh managed to get his hand to divert John Pratt’s drive over the top, but Pratt got on the score-sheet five minutes into the second half, when he headed in Glenn Hoddle’s corner at the near post to make it 2-0.

At last Bolton showed some attacking intent and Peter Reid’s shot flew off Barry Daines and Taylor was on hand to kick the ball out as it was going in.  Winger Willie Morgan was unlucky not to score when his shot hit a Spurs leg and hit the crossbar.

08.04.1978
This crunch Division 2 meeting was moved to kick off at 2.45 p.m. to avoid the FA Cup semi-final between Ipswich Town and West Bromwich Albion at Highbury. 

While Tottenham were looking for an immediate return to the top flight, Bolton had been climbing back up after sinking to Division Three. 

The biggest White Hart Lane crowd for three years witnessed a tense affair with both clubs on 51 points, but Spurs on top courtesy of a better goal difference.  It was a single goal from a familiar face to Bolton fans that won the game, with Don McAllister, signed from Burnden Park three years previously, who dived in to head home Glenn Hoddle’s flick on to John Pratt’s corner in the 35th minute to beat Jim McDonagh in goal.

There was a threat to the lead when the ball hit the Spurs net in the 71st minute, but Neil Whatmore was ruled offside by the linesman after the referee had given the goal initially.

Teams :
Spurs –  Barry Daines, Gerry Armstrong, Jimmy Holmes, Don McAllister, Steve Perryman, Glenn Hoddle, John Pratt, Neil McNab, Colin Lee (Ian Moores), Chris Jones, Peter Taylor.

10.01.1978
Bolton took the FA Cup Third Round replay in extra time on their own ground to progress to the Fourth Round, but only after a battle by Spurs.

The home side went on the attack from the start and Frank Worthington went close with a shot that went inches wide in the third minute with the same player just unable to reach a pass across goal from Neil Whatmore.  Tottenham almost went ahead when a sliced shot across goal from Peter Taylor was almost converted by John Pratt when he won the ball and hit the post with his shot.  Bolton thought they had taken the lead when Peter Reid’s volley was disallowed for a push in the move leading up to it.

Five minutes into the second half, a free-kick was awarded for a foul by Jimmy Holmes on Worthington and it was touched to John Ritson by Willie Morgan and the full back drove a shot from 22 yards beyond Barry Daines’ reach.  Minutes after, the scorer was in the right place on his own goal-line to head away Neil McNab’s cross-shot.  Daines was alert to push out a Ray Train shot as Tottenham pushed Steve Perryman forward to leave three at the back.  It gave Bolton the opportunity to attack again and Terry Naylor had to race in to clear a chip over the Spurs keeper by Whatmore off the line.  However, it was Tottenham who got the next goal in the game when Allardyce brought down Perryman in the box allowing Taylor to coolly convert from the penalty spot to take the game into extra time.

Spurs were pressing forward in the first period of extra time with Bolton’s centre-half Mike Walsh keeping them at bay, but it was a goal at the death that settled the tie.  Entering the final minute of the thirty, Ritson strode past Pratt, crossed and substitute Garry Jones met the ball with his run into the area, heading it past Daines to take Bolton into the next round.

07.01.1978
Bolton were our opponents in the FA Cup 3rd Round and having been vying with them at the top of the Second Division only separated by goal difference, as tight battle was in prospect. An indeed that proved the case despite Tottenham taking a 2-0 lead.  John Duncan struck to head in the first goal from a 38th minute Glenn Hoddle corner.  However, Roy Greaves got Bolton back on track with a penalty awarded against Jimmy Holmes for handball in the 55th minute. 

It was Hoddle put Tottenham further ahead when he produced a curler around McDonagh from 15 yards out after being set up by Holmes and Gerry Armstrong, but Neil Whatmore equalised with five minutes to spare, converting Micky Walsh’s through ball to take Spurs back to Burnden Park for the replay.

18.04.1964
Jimmy Greaves’ goal decided this Division 1 match between the two sides at the Lane.  Bolton sat near the bottom of the table, even though they had not been beaten in six matches needing one point from their last two games to avoid relegation, but in converting a Mullery cross, Greaves helped condemn Wanderers to the Second Division. Bolton should have gone ahead in the early stages when Francis Lee set up Gordon Taylor for a shot the flew just wide of the Tottenham goal.  However, Greaves’ goal five minutes before the interval settled the match, knocking the ball into the net from close range. 

This was John White’s last match at White Hart Lane, before his untimely death in July.

07.12.1963
One of the best games seen at Burnden Park for some time saw Spurs triumph 3-1.

Jimmy Greaves’ header in the tenth minute was deflected past his own goalkeeper by defender Syd Farrimond, but a determined Bolton side pulled level with a goal in the 20th minute from Wyn Davies’ volley.  Five minutes later, Spurs regained the lead with Jimmy Greaves netting his 200th league goal of his career with a left foot shot past Eddie Hopkinson.

After the half-time break, it took ten minutes for Tottenham to make it 3-1.  Cliff Jones ran half of the pitch, before passing to Greaves, who fed Dyson to score the final goal of the game.

24.02.1962
Spurs were in the midst of a busy spell when they met Bolton in this First Division game at White Hart Lane.

Two days before Tottenham met Dukla Prague, they faced Bolton and the visitors took the early initiative.  Freddie Hill struck the bar and the goalpost, but it was Spurs who took the lead with Bobby Smith’s 34th minute volley finishing off a neat chipped pass from John White.  However, Hill did find the back of the net shortly afterwards to make it 1-1 after being set free by Ron McGarry. 

Hill was on the mark again in the 54th minute to give Wanderers the lead as he crashed in a 30 yard left foot shot, but Spurs responded with White the creator once more, this time setting up Jimmy Greaves with ten minutes left on the clock.

Tommy Harmer’s sparkling display made this a comfortable win for Spurs in the thick mud at the Lane in Division 1.  The thaw of the frozen pitch had left the playing surface slippery and heavy but Spurs managed to play some very good football and outplay Bolton Wanderers to win 4-0.

Terry Dyson continued to deputise for the injured Terry Medwin and it was he who beat two men after receiving a pass from Tommy Harmer before hitting the net on 25 minutes.  Bobby Smith scored the second for Tottenham three minutes after, having taken Stokes’ pass and it was three before half-time when George Robb struck Dyson’s centre first time into the net with the whistle for the interval moments away,

While Spurs also had the balance of play after the break, chances were not taken and Hopkinson could not be beaten until Robb was fouled in the area and Tommy Harmer added a penalty to make the final score 4-0, with the Spurs defence producing a solid performance to keep Bolton getting through to Ted Ditchburn.

This rearranged Division One match saw Spurs travel to the North-West to meet Bolton Wanderers after the original fixture had been postponed. Bobby Smith’s goal had put Tottenham ahead at the break, but the second half was a different matter.  Bolton scored soon after the restart to make it 1-1, but George Robb restored the Spurs lead.

However, two penalties for the home side in three minutes changed the outcome of the match, with both being converted to leave the points at Burnden Park after a disappointing result.

Tottenham were without Dave Dunmore, who was representing the Army in a match against the Irish FA.

An early season game saw Tottenham beat Bolton Wanderers at White Hart Lane by four goals to two in the First Division to complete a double over the Trotters in five days. 

One win in three games prior to this match gave no indication of what would happen at the end of the campaign, with Spurs ending it with their first First Division championship title. 

Tottenham had been shocked when Moir shot home through a crowded penalty area to give the Trotters a 10th minute lead, but things got worse when Langton fed Hernon to set up Moir to score his second of the game. 

But Tottenham started to put things together, with some neat passing opening up Bolton to allow Medley to cross for Duquemin to crash in a header.  This inspired a spell of pressure that brought an equaliser when Sonny Walters put a corner into the goalmouth and Howe knocked the ball into his own goal. 

Now level, Tottenham had the momentum to go on and win the game.  With Duquemin shooting his second and Bill Nicholson creating a fourth for Eddie Baily Spurs had won a match that had goals, chances and good personal battles all over the field, played out in a sporting manner.

After a poor start to the season Arthur Rowe’s side kick started their season with an away win at Bolton’s Burnden Park, which was soaked after a three hour downpour before the game.They suffered a set-back when Clarke slid Langton’s cross into his own net on 35 minutes, but five minutes before the break Murphy ran through the home defence and the keeper could only help the ball into the net. 

The second half proved a better one for Spurs and Medley, Walters and Duquemin all scored to give Tottenham the points.

Bolton were near the foot of Division One, while Spurs were in the Second Division when the two teams were drawn together in the Third Round of the FA Cup at Burnden Park. 

Tottenham were grateful to Bill Nicholson, who cleared a Bolton shot off the line after it had got past Ted Ditchburn, so the game went into extra time, which was played after the first game in this time.   

Seven minutes in, Len Duquemin hit the first goal of the game in his first FA Cup match.  The striker had to power through the muddy pitch and went past two defenders before shooting across Bolton keeper Hanson.  Freddie Cox’s cross provided Duquemin with the opportunity to head home a second in the closing minute of the game to see Tottenham to victory by diving head-long into the mud to score.
