25.09.1968 A League Cup Third Round tie at White Hart Lane was the first meeting between the two sides, which ended in a big win for Tottenham.

With future manager David Pleat in the Grecians side, Spurs were expected to take this tie easily against the side from the Fourth Division, but there was a determined resistance from the underdogs in Tottenham’s first home game in the competition.

In fact, Exeter took the lead early on through John Mitten, but Jimmy Greaves’ equaliser came shortly after although the visitors took the lead again, when Alan Banks seized on Pat Jennings’ parry from Pleat’s shot to make the score 2-1.  Spurs stepped up their game and by half-time they had established a 3-2 lead thanks to goals from another future Tottenham manager, Terry Venables and another from Greaves.  Jimmy’s goal was sublime.  Receiving the ball from Alan Gilzean, he swerved past player-manager and centre half John Newman.  With an electric turn of pace, he sped through the Exeter defence and passed the ball unerringly into the bottom corner of the net.

Into the second half, Spurs moved up another gear with Jimmy Pearce scoring his first two goals for the club while Exeter still refused to lay down and made it 5-3 through another goal by Banks.  Good work by Cliff Jones and Alan Mullery provided Jimmy Greaves with the chance to score another hat-trick goal, which he took gratefully, leaving Spurs 6-3 winners.
