Wolves v Spurs has thrown up its fair share of classic encounters over the years and for Tottenham, Molineux has generally been a difficult place to travel to. There’s often plenty of goals too as last year’s 3-3 draw underlines.
When you think of memorable games from the past, two will always come to mind – (for Spurs fans anyway). Firstly there were the two semi-final games en route to Wembley in 1981. Wolves’ late equaliser at Hillsborough was followed by a replay at Highbury of all places, where Spurs won courtesy of two goals from Garth Crooks and a long range strike from Ricky Villa.
Then of course there is the 1972 UEFA Cup final. Played over two legs, Spurs won 2-1 at Molinuex thanks to a brace from Martin Chivers and a stellar performance from Pat Jennings and then sneaked through at home with a 1-1 draw, courtesy of an Alan Mullery header in his last game for the club.
Here are some highlights from that UEFA Final – a similar result from Molineux today would be most welcome!
