03.01.1987 Tottenham were disappointed with only one point coming away from Ipswich Town after creating the bulk of the chances in the match.

It took 15 minutes for Spurs to go ahead, with Mark Bowen taking a pass from Shaun Close and finishing well.  Ipswich levelled ten minutes later, but Spurs regained the lead with a move that started at the back and ended with Close scoring from Richard Cooke’s cross.

It was a frustrating second half for Tottenham, spurning many good chances and having a penalty saved, whereas the hosts tucked their spot-kick away in the 75th minute to steal a draw from a game that Spurs should have put to bed much earlier in the match.

21.03.1981 Spurs were hit by Ipswich Town for a 1-5 defeat at Portman Road. Trialist John Lidford scored the first Town goal in the 14th minute with a header and that was almost his last involvement as he broke his collar bone and had to be replaced by Don Souter.  The foul that caused the injury gave Ipswich a penalty, which Bryan Krug converted. 

Into the second half, Tommy Parkin, Colin Clarke and Mitch D’Avray scored to make it 0-5 and only a consolation goal in the 59th minute reduced the score-line a little.

18.10.1980 Spurs fielded a strong side, but were unable to breakdown a determined Ipswich Town side. Laurie Sivell made a last-ditch save diving among the feet right in front of goal, while at the other end Roger Osborne hit a shot over the bar from close range, then had a header cleared off the line in the second period.  Trevor Putney and Mitch D’Avray both whistled shots just wide, but the match ended scoreless.

24.11.1979 Spurs put in what Peter Shreeve called “the best performance of the season” in beating Ipswich town Reserves 4-2 at White Hart Lane.

John Pratt lobbed in the opening goal in the first few minutes, but Ipswich’s Peter Shields drove in a deflected shot to equalise with a quick response.  It was into the second half, when Paul Miller’s 57th minute header from Mike Hazard’s free-kick restored the lead and Mark Falco extended that advantage in the 73rd minute when he crashed in Tony Galvin’s right-wing cross.  When Galvin hit another shot at goal, Town goalie Lauire Sivell couldn’t hold it and Terry Gibson netted the loose ball in the 81st minute.  Ipswich claimed a consolation with five minutes left, as Paul Miller put Shield’s free-kick through his own goal.

Garry Brooke was replaced just after Tottenham’s second goal having suffered an ankle injury.

07.02.1976
A 2-2 draw saw Tottenham’s reserves robbed at the death by a late penalty for Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Halfway through the first half, Spurs found themselves a goal behind and pulled back level just before half time when Gerry Armstrong fired in a shot from just inside the area.

The game was fairly even, but Tottenham took a late lead when Garry bacon scored with a rocket of a shot from 30 yards out that found the net.  However, a late spell of pressure from the Suffolk side ended with a penalty given against Andy Keeley that earned Town a share of the points.

21.09.1974 Spurs Reserves were just too strong as they put in a good performance to beat Ipswich Town Reserves 2-1 at White Hart Lane.

Despite early chances at both ends, the first goal came after 26 minutes when Alfie Conn put a free-kick onto Chris Jones’ head for the striker to score.  Ipswich goalkeeper David McKellar was busy and did well to stop John Margerrison and then Danny Clapton’s header from scoring before the half-time break.

Two minutes after the interval, Clapton fired a shot in off the post to make it 2-0, but the lead was cut in half mid-way through the second half when Terry Austin tapped in a goal after the Tottenham defence had been opened up by the visitors.  However, Spurs reasserted their dominance to ensure that the two points stayed in North London.

Joe Kinnear floated in an early free-kick, which Ray Clarke headed to set up Mike Dillon, who volleyed home the opening goal.  The second Spurs goal also came in the first half, when David Jenkins chested the ball down for Graeme Souness to shoot past the Ipswich keeper.

Tottenham took their foot off the gas in the second half and had to keep Ipswich at bay on a difficult, dry pitch, but a last minute free-kick brought the visitors a consolation goal.

24.04.1971 Spurs Reserves were held 1-1 by Ipswich Town in a Football Combination meeting at Portman Road.

Tottenham had the chances to score in the first half, but poor finishing and the crossbar that denied Roger Morgan saw them turn around a goal down to the home side.

The woodwork again came to the home team’s rescue in the second period, with the post being struck by a header from David Jenkins and so it was late in the game when Graeme Souness, on as a substitute for Jenkins, struck a fine volley to score from John Collins’ cross to earn a point.

Spurs Reserves went ahead early on in this Football Combination match agianst Ipswich Town at White Hart Lane and went on to win convincingly.

John Cutbush’s cross was headed home by Roy Woolcott to make it 1-0 to Spurs, but Ipswich equalised when former Spurs apprentice Terry Shanahan capitalised on a slip-up by the defence to score.

Spurs were reliant on Phil Holder to restore the lead with a thumping 20 yard shot and when Tony Want ‘s left wing run saw Woolcott touch the ball on to Dennis Bond to score the third Tottenham goal, the points were secure.
