20.04.1957
Division 1     Away     Won     3-0

Tottenham completed the season’s double over Cardiff in Ninian Park with a 3-0 win.

There were opportunities at both ends before Terry Dyson put Spurs ahead on 20 minutes after receiving a pass from Tommy Harmer.  Cardiff came out fighting in the second half and should have found a way back into the game, having several good scoring chances and missed a penalty after a handball in the box had been given.  As it was, Spurs were more ruthless in the last five minutes, with Dave Dunmore scoring a very good goal and Johnny Brooks hitting the net to seal a good away win on Easter Saturday.

13.10.1956 Division 1     Home     Won     5-0

A 5-0 win for Spurs was secured by goals from a George Robb hat-trick and a double from Alfie Stokes.  Spurs were not at their best despite the final score-line against a Cardiff side who were seven places off the bottom of the table. Robb put Tottenham ahead after 16 minutes, from a free-kick in what was the only goal of the first half.

Spurs almost conceded at the start of the second half, but the Bluebird’s “goal” was ruled out for a foul , then Tottenham doubled their lead when Blanchflower set up Alfie Stokes, who took on one man and slid home the second goal.  Stokes soon made it 3-0 and although Cardiff struck the crossbar, Robb struck twice more to complete his hat-trick and wrap up a comfortable win.

Newly promoted from the Second Division, Cardiff City visited White Hart Lane and they were beaten 2-1 by Spurs in front of a large crowd.

The game was played at a fast tempo and there was a quick start by Spurs, who went ahead in the seventh minute through a fine Sid McClellan goal. However, the lead only lasted for three minutes, with Cardiff pulling level when Ken Chisholm fired a drive into Ted Ditchburn’s net.

In the 55th minute, Les Bennett played in Len Duquemin, who made a move to his left before hitting a shot across the keeper to give Spurs the lead, which they tried to add to by attacking the Welsh goal for the remainder of the match, but could not breach the City defence again.

09.03.1922 FA Cup Fourth Round replay     Home     Won     2-1

The Fourth Round replay in the FA Cup took place on a Thursday afternoon as Spurs progressed with a 2-1 win.  So many people wanted to see the match that permission was given for fans to sit around the edge of the pitch on the running track.

This time it was Cardiff City who went ahead, with Jimmy Gill taking the chance to give the Welsh side a 1-0 advantage in the 42nd minute when he converted Jack Evans’ cross.  It took until halfway through the second half for Jimmy Dimmock to pull Tottenham level with a header from a corner and with just six minutes left, Cardiff’s goalkeeper Ben Davies failed to clear a cross and the ball fell invitingly for Charlie Wilson to score and take Spurs into the Fifth Round with the decisive goal.  It wasn’t without complaint from the Bluebirds players, who argued that the keeper had been blocked off, but the referee allowed the goal to stand.

04.03.1922 FA Cup Fourth Round     Away     Drew     1-1

A late late equaliser grabbed a Fourth Round FA Cup replay for the Bluebirds, after Spurs had taken the lead through a 23rd minute Jimmy Seed goal.  The Spurs forward had taken the ball past a couple of players before hitting an unstoppable shot past Bluebirds’ keeper Ben Davies.

It was nearly 1-1 after 53 minutes when goalkeeper Bill Jacques caught a ball, but was charged by Len Davies into the goal.  The ball was adjudged to have stayed out of the goal, while the majority of the keeper’s body was over the line.  Even though there were many protests from the crowd, who claimed the ball had clearly crossed the line, only a corner was awarded.

However, Davies had the last laugh with a last minute leveller to take the game to White Hart Lane for a replay, although the score could have been different if Billy Grimshaw, Jimmy Gill and Joe Clenell had done better with good chances when 0-1 down.
