19.01.1997 Premier League     Away     Lost     1-2.

Despite a dream start for Spurs with a second minute Andy Sinton goal, it was Nottingham Forest who took the points after Tottenham had been reduced to ten men.

Allan Nielsen’s long throw had been headed on by Sol Campbell for Sinton to finish from close range, with chances to add to the score not taken by David Howells and Ramon Vega.  It wasn’t all one-way traffic, with Ian Walker having to be alert to keep out efforts from Stuart Pearce and David Phillips, while the ball bounced away off the post from a Colin Cooper effort. 

With Vega sent off late in the first half, Bryan Roy capitalised two minutes into the second period, finishing Des Lyttle’s cross from close-in and it was Roy who netted the winner in the 61st minute, following in after Walker had saved from Bart-Williams.  Tottenham did respond well, as Campbell fired over the bar and Mark Crossley was forced into action by shots from Ronny Rosenthal and David Howells.

09.03.1996 FA Cup Fifth Round     Home      Drew     1-1  (lost 1-3 on penalties)

With the team unable to be separated during 120 minutes of this FA Cup Fifth Round replay, it was decided by a penalty shoot-out. Although Tottenham had the early chances, it was Forest who took the lead.  Teddy Sheringham, David Howells and Chris Armstrong all had opportunities to score, but in the ninth minute, Bryan Roy ran through the Spurs defence to slot the ball home.  It was a fine free-kick from Sheringham that brought Tottenham level in the 33rd minute.

With Spurs again having the majority of the goal-scoring chances in the second half, it was disappointing that in extra time Ronny Rosenthal’s shot was cleared off the line by Stuart Pearce and Steve Slade’s late shot hit the post, meaning the game went to a shoot-out.  

Unfortunately for Spurs, Pearce scored the first penalty, while Mark Crossley beat out Clive Wilson’s effort.  Ian Walker stopped Roy’s kick and then Rosenthal’s shot was stopped before Ian Woan and Ruel Fox both converted theirs.  Steve Chettle slotted past Walker and Teddy Sheringham had to score his penalty to keep Tottenham in the match, but Crossley once more saved a Spurs FA Cup penalty to seal their exit from the competition.

28.02.1996 FA Cup Fifth Round     Away     Drew     2-2

The rearranged FA Cup Fifth Round tie saw the game swing back and forth in typical cup tradition. Mabbutt’s third minute foul on Bryan Roy gave Ian Woan the opportunity to fire a shot past Walker from the edge of the box, but the lead only lasted for five minutes, as Sheringham flicked on Calderwood’s long free-kick for Chris Armstrong to head home.

With 29 minutes on the clock, Campbell put in a cross that Crossley failed to hold and Armstrong was on the spot to convert the chance and give Spurs the lead.  

Kevin Campbell and Roy were denied by a fine double save by Walker on 62 minutes, but when Rosenthal fouled Steve Stone 10 minutes later, he was left helpless as Woan hit his second goal from the free-kick to take the tie to a replay.

However, Jason Dozzell’s fourth minute foul on Chris Bart-Williams that earned him a booking still stood.

Forest beat Spurs 2-1 in this Premier League match at the City Ground. The home side took the lead after 25 minutes when Kingsley Black shot in from the edge of the penalty area, with the lead doubled ten minutes later through a near post finish from Robert Rosario after Ian Woan crossed from the left wing.

Spurs did get a goal back a minute before half time, when Steve Sedgley headed in after a corner had been headed up into the air, but even with a whole half to play, Tottenham could not force and equaliser.  Erik Thorstvedt had to be replaced at half-time, with Kevin Dearden making what was to be his last Spurs appearance, as did Nayim, who was to move to Real Zaragoza at the end of the season.

28.12.1992 Premier League     Home     Won     2-1

Spurs edged this Premier League visit from Nottingham Forest 2-1 at the Lane.

Tottenham strung together an excellent passing move and with six passes opened up the Forest back-line to allow Paul Allen to loft the ball over the defence and find Nicky Barmby running through to volley through the keeper’s legs.

Forest found a way back into the match when a second half free-kick found it’s way out to Scot Gemmill, who shot from 25 yards and it went in off the post.  Spurs were striving to get back into the lead and achieved that when Dean Austin’s long throw was flicked on by Sheringham and then Mabbutt headed it on to Barmby at the far post.  The midfielder played a low ball back in front of the goal and Mabbutt was there to knock the ball into the net with his knee from four yards out.

Spurs visited the City Ground to play Forest, who were in the top four of Division One.

Forest took an 11th minute lead through Steve Hodge (later to play for Spurs), who shot past Parks in goal for Tottenham, but Mark Falco pulled Spurs level by knocking home Graham Roberts’ cross on 26 minutes.

The home side pushed Spurs back for large sections of the game and the pressure told when Colin Walsh scored in the 64th minute.  But with only a minute or so to go, Ardiles picked out a shrewd pass through the Forest defence to find Chris Hughton running through and he found the back of the net with a 15 yard shot to earn Spurs a point.

02.10.1983 Division 1     Home     Won     2-1

Spurs met Nottingham Forest in the first live televised League match on ITV and Spurs thrilled the watching millions with a comeback performance to take the points in their first home win of the season. Chas and Dave entertained the crowd before the game and five minutes into it Spurs fans were not keen to sing along to “Mustn’t Grumble”, as Colin Walsh gave the visiting side from the East Midlands the lead.  With Spurs failing to get going, it was not until the 70th minute that Gary Stevens’ diving header from Garry Brooke’s cross levelled the scores.

Five minutes before the final whistle, Brooke floated in a free-kick and Mark Falco rose to head downwards into the danger area and Steve Archibald nipped in to poach the winning goal.

An entertaining 2-2 draw saw Spurs return to London with a First Division point.

25.09.1982 Division 1     Home     Won     4-1

Spurs turned on a very good performance to see off a strong Forest team.

Tottenham took the lead just before the half hour with a Gary Mabbutt header, then Ricky Villa cleverly made an opening for Garth Crooks to add another goal three minutes after.  

Mabbutt scored a third before half-time to put Spurs 3-0 up and although Garry Birtles had found Ray Clemence in fine form, he pulled one goal back for the visitors.  However, Willie Young condemned his new side to defeat when he assisted Tottenham with a sloppy back-pass allowing Crooks to nip in to poach a fourth goal.

18.01.1982 League Cup Fifth Round     Home     Won     1-0

A mis-hit Ossie Ardiles shot got Spurs through this Fifth Round League Cup tie, but it was another incident that took the spotlight in a match that saw the new West Stand used for the first time. Spurs were awarded a penalty and Glenn Hoddle stepped up to face Peter Shilton in the City goal.  The ball was hit to the keeper’s right and he dived to push the ball out, but some Forest players were inside the area at the time the kick was taken, so Hoddle had to take it again.  This time, he shot to Shilton’s left and found the back of the net, but Mark Falco was encroaching, so again he had to replace the ball on the spot.  For a third time Hoddle ran up to take the kick and placed the ball near the right hand post, but Shilton saved it for a second and final time.

A 2-0 home win over Nottingham Forest helped Spurs to a good start to this season.

There were first appearances for the striking duo of Steve Archibald and Garth Crooks, with a debut goal for the latter.

Glenn Hoddle’s penalty early in the second half saw the lead in Tottenham’s favour and the vigour of the Spurs players ensured that Forest were not able to find a way back into the game.  Steve Archibald went close on a few occasions and strike-partner Garth Crooks sealed the win with a late goal to make it 2-0.

27.10.1979 Division 1     Home     Won     1-0

A stunning goal from Glenn Hoddle won this match for Spurs against a strong Forest side.

On a sunny autumn afternoon at White Hart Lane, with just a few minutes gone, Milija Aleksic kicked the ball upfield, where Gerry Armstrong flicked it on.  Chris Jones knocked the ball back into the path of Hoddle, who produced a stunning volley that flew past a helpless Peter Shilton to give Tottenham an early lead they held to the end of the match.

Featuring on The Big Match TV programme, the goal was hailed as the best that season, with the ball not touching the ground until it nestled in the back of the net at the Park Lane end.

Hoddle went on to strike the post in the 16th minute, then, when he got the ball in the net again a few minutes later, the referee disallowed it for a handball.  With the Spurs team creating a number of chances, the score stayed at 1-0, but Forest missed a glaring opportunity near the end of the match, when John Robertson couldn’t keep his shot down and it flew over the bar.

Spurs failed to claim the initiative with early chances falling to Conn, Peters and Coates and went behind to Forest in the 33rd minute.  Liam O’Kane’s right wing free kick was glanced home by Neil Martin.

The game was dire, with Spurs fans singing “We want football” and “What a load of rubbish”, as the team struggled against the Reds, who were being managed for the first time by Brian Clough.  Spurs could have brought the tie level in the 82nd minute, when Perryman snaffled a loose ball away from the keeper, but his shot was too high and Spurs were consigned to an early exit from the competition.

12.02.1972 Division 1     Away     Won     1-0

A 59th minute Martin Peters goal gave Spurs the points as they travelled to the City Ground for this First Division meeting, doing the double over Nottingham Forest in the process.

The first 45 minutes of the game were disjointed, with Spurs looking the better side in the second half. In the 58th minute, Tottenham took the lead with what proved to be the only goal of the game. Jim McIntosh’s poor back pass to Jim Barron went straight to Martin Chivers and his pass put Alan Gilzean in on the left. The striker’s shot was blocked by John Cottam, with the ball being picked up by Cyril Knowles, who crossed a well flighted ball back into the box for Martin Peters to hook the ball in from a difficult angle at the near post.

Forest fought back to try to find an equaliser, with three good chances going close to levelling the match. But Spurs also had their chances, with Martin Peters went close to adding to the score with a diving header from Gilzean’s cross in a game where Phil Holder made his league debut. Peters nodded down for Chivers, but Barron got there first and then Roger Morgan missed a chance created by Gilzean.

13.02.1971 FA Cup Fifth Round     Home     Won     2-1

A good first half performance saw Spurs through this FA Cup Fifth Round FA Cup tie against Nottingham Forest in their 250th FA Cup match at a windy White Hart Lane.

Just 45 seconds into the game, Martin Chivers’ long throw found Martin Peters, who hit a shot from three yards out that went wide.  With the wind blowing towards the Park Lane end, neither team were able to get the ball down and play their normal game, but in the seventh minute Chivers put Spurs into the lead when he reacted first to the Jim Barron’s parry from Alan Gilzean’s shot and hit the ball into the net.

Spurs spurned a number of good openings, but it was a Chivers long throw that created the second goal as Gilzean came across the front of the defender and back-headed into the net with 41 minutes gone.

The visitors got back into the game in the second half, when Knowles was adjudged to have fouled Peter Cormack and Ian Storey-Moore struck the 67th minute penalty past Jennings to make the score 2-1 and it stayed that way until the end, although Jennings and Knowles had to combine to stop Cormack grabbing a late equaliser.

Division 1     Away     Drew     2-2

Jimmy Pearce’s involvement at either end of the match proved vital to the final outcome in this 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

An effort that was cleared off the line by John Winfield in the very first minute saw Pearce go close to opening the scoring, after Jimmy Greaves had fed the ball through to him.  But the team’s dominance of the first half was thwarted until just before half-time when Greaves fired the ball home.

However, a fiery start to the second half saw Forest come back to take the lead.  Ronnie Rees headed the home team level, then Henry Newton touched a short free-kick to Ian Storey-Moore, who struck a fierce shot past Jennings to make it 2-1.

It took until the final minute for Spurs to tie it up at 2-2, when Alan Mullery’s determined run and cross from the right was put back into the danger area by Alan Gilzean and Pearce arrived to put the ball past Grummitt.

29.04.1967 Spurs came out on top in the FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough over Nottingham Forest in an open and attacking match between the sides who sat second (Forest) and third (Spurs) in the First Division.

Forest went into the match without injured striker Joe Baker, but Frank Wignall went close twice in the first half hour with Cyril Knowles required to kick the ball away from in front of goal and another effort just going wide, but Spurs kept Forest out as they pressed forward.  On 32 minutes, Spurs opened the scoring.  Kinnear passes sideways to Mike England in the centre circle and his lofted pass forward found the head of Alan Gilzean.  It was his knock down from the aerial battle with Bob McKinlay that provided the opportunity for Jimmy Greaves to strike a left foot volley that flew past keeper Peter Grummitt and went in off the left-hand post.  Knowles had a lucky escape in the closing minutes of the first half, when he almost scored an own goal when clearing a John Barnwell shot off the line.

After 66 minutes, Saul took the ball off Terry Hennessey and hit a 20 yarder past the goalie to make it 2-0.  Saul and Hennessey were lucky to stay on the pitch after they got involved in a spat near the corner flag and it was the Forest defender who closed the gap with an 81st minute header from Barry Lyons’ corner that bounced down over the line off the underside of the crossbar.  Forest pressed for an equaliser, but Spurs caused some concern at the other end with Grummitt saving well from Gilzean, Saul and Greaves.  Forest’s efforts were not enough to keep Spurs from going through to Wembley to meet Chelsea, who overcame Leeds in the other semi.

Division 1     Home     Won    9-2.

Despite going behind to a Trevor Hockey goal after five minutes, Spurs went on to record a very big winning score against Nottingham Forest at White Hart Lane. 

A quick equaliser by Jimmy Greaves was quickly followed by a second from the striker before Cliff Jones made it 3-1 after just 15 minutes.  In the remaining half an hour before half time, John White, Terry Medwin and Greaves, completing his hat-trick, had amazingly made it 6-1 to Tottenham.

When Jones was felled in the box five minutes after the restart, Les Allen fired home from the penalty spot and Cliff got himself another goal to make the score 8-1 before Greaves completed the Spurs total with his fourth of the game.  While Tottenham had missed a further hatful of chances, the scoring for the match was rounded off when Geoff Vowden netted for Forest with five minutes left.

Division 1     Home     Lost     3-4

A quick start by Spurs counted for nothing in the final analysis as Forest came back to take both First Division points at White Hart Lane.

Tommy Harmer and Johnny Brooks gave Spurs a dream start inside ten minutes, but Forest’s Tommy Wilson got one back before the break with a header.  Then in a turnaround in fortune, Stewart Imlach and Billy Gray (via a deflection off Jim Iley) took Notts. Forest into the lead shortly after the interval and while Terry Medwin brought the score back to 3-3, it was left to Imlach to notch the 76th minute winner for the visitors.

With the teams at either end of the table, it was Spurs who took the points as they pushed for promotion to Division 1.

However, it was struggling Forest who drew first blood with George Lee netting for the visitors, but this only stirred Tottenham into action for Len Duquemin to level the score and Les Bennett hit the net still in the first time to score what turned out to be the winning goal.  The result helped neither side in the long run that season, with Spurs ending up in fifth place while Forest were relegated to Division 3. 

Eddie Baily sustained a badly cut head after colliding with Forest goalkeeper George Walker and our inside forward spent the rest of the match with a heavily plastered head.
