  • Description

    BRADFORD CITY, TWO GOALS DOWN AFTER ELEVEN MINUTES OF THEIR MATCH AGAINST FIRST DIVISION TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR, STAGED A GREAT FIGHTBACK TO DRAW AND STAY IN THE F.A. CUP FIGHT. CITY, STRONG CONTENDERS FOR THE THIRD DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP, SEEMED OVERAWED IN THE FIRST STAGES OF THE MATCH, BUT SETTLED DOWN AND PLAYED SOLIDLY TO SCORE THE NECESSARY TWO GOALS TO DRAW THE MATCH.

    SPURS, WINNERS OF THE F.A. CUP FIVE TIMES, BEGAN CONFIDENTLY. JIMMY GREAVES, THEIR STAR FORWARD, NETTED HIS FIRST GOAL IN EIGHT LUCKLESS MATCHES IN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES OF PLAY. CITY'S DEFENCE WAS SHATTERED, AND A FEW MINUTES LATER ROGER MORGAN FOUND A GAP TO PUT HIS TEAM TWO GOALS AHEAD.

    CITY FOUGHT ON, AND IT WAS PROBABLY A LUCKY GOAL FROM INSIDE FORWARD BOBBY HAM WHICH WAS THE TURNING POINT IN THE MATCH. A LOW CENTRE FROM HIM AFTER 25 MINUTES, DEFLECTED OFF MIKE ENGLAND INTO THE NET. ALTHOUGH THE GOAL HAD BEEN FORTUNATE IT SHOOK SPURS OUT OF THEIR STRIDE. THEY NEVER AGAIN MANAGED TO DOMINATE THE MATCH AND ALLOWED CITY TO GAIN MIDFIELD CONTROL.

    IN THE SECOND HALF, CITY, NOW RUNNING SMOOTHLY, CONSTANTLY ATTACKED. BUT 11 MINUTES BEFORE THE END, CYRIL KNOWLES GOT ACROSS THE HEAD A SHOT FROM HALL OVER THE LINE AND DREW THE MATCH.
