    Background: IN THE MARCH 31 UK FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION CUP SEMI-FINALS, LEAGUE CHAMPIONS-ELECT, BURNLEY DREW 1-1 WITH FULHAM, AT VILLA PARK, AND FA CUP-HOLDERS, TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS REACHED THE FINAL FOR THE FOURTH TIME IN THEIR HISTORY BY BEATING MANCHESTER UNITED 3-1, AT SHEFFIELD.

    THE FULHAM-BURNLEY REPLAY WILL BE AT LEICESTER APRIL 9. IF FULHAM WIN THE FINAL WILL BE AN ALL-LONDON TIE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE COMPETITION. IF BURNLEY WIN, THE STAGE WILL BE SET FOR A FINAL BETWEEN THE TWO BEST TEAMS IN THE UK - MANCHESTER UNITED AND TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS.

    FULHAM, AT THEIR BEST, HAD THREE QUARTERS OF THE PLAY, BUT BURNLEY KNEW HOW TO PACE THE GAME AND DEVELOP AN ALMOST UNBEATABLE QUALITY. FULHAM OPENED THE SCORE AND SENT THE SUPPORTERS IN THE 60,000-STRONG CROWD INTO RAPTURES: HAYNES SQUARED LOW TO LEGGAT, BRINGING THE BALL UNDER CONTROL, SWIVELLING AND VOLLEYING IT PAST BLACKLAW.

    IN THE SECOND HALF, SWIRLING SNOW FAILED TO DIM FULHAM'S ENTHUSIASM DESPITE BURNLEY'S EQUALISER: McILROY SQUARED THE BALL FROM THE LEFT AND CONNELLY RACING IN, LET FLY WITH HIS LEFT FOOT AND THE BALL FLASHED INTO THE ROOF OF THE NET, SEVEN MINUTES AFTER THE RESTART.

    BURNLEY:- BLACKLAW; ANGUS; ELDER; ADAMSON; CUMMINGS; MILLER; CONNELLY: McILROY; POINTER; ROBSON; HARRIS.

    FULHAM:- MACEDO; CONEN; LANGLEY; MULLERY; DODGIN; LOWE; LEGGAT; HENDERSON; COOK; HAYNES; O'CONNELL.

    UNTROUBLED BY MANCHESTER UNITED, OR THE STRAINS OF THE EUROPEAN CUP, TOTTENHAM, NEVER BEATEN IN A CUP FINAL, THRUST AUTHORITATIVELY INTO ATTACK AND WITHIN FOUR MINUTES TOOK THE LEAD - AND THE MORAL ADVANTAGE: BLANCHFLOWER'S FREE KICK WAS HEADED ON BY SMITH, GREAVES, SLID UNCHALLENGED THROUGH TO CENTRE AND WITH CASUAL CERTAINTY, WAITING FOR GASKELL TO DIVE, PUT THE BALL GENTLY UNDER HIM.

    STILL IN THE FIRST HALF, JONES SCORED TOTTENHAM'S SECOND TO THE ROARS 25 THE FANS IN THE 65,000-STRONG CROWD. IN THE SECOND HALF, DOWN CAME THE SNOW. IN THE FLURRIES, MANCHESTER'S FORWARDS MADE AMENDS FOR WHAT THEY HAD FAILED TO DO IN 80 MINUTES: SIX MINUTES FROM THE END, CHARLTON PUSHED THE BALL TO HERD ON THE LEFT WING WHO LASHED A LEFT-FOOT DRIVE INTO THE NET.

    BUT TERRY MEDWIN KILLED ANY HOPE FOR MANCHESTER BY HEADING HOME A GOAL MADE POSSIBLE BY WHITE.

    TOTTENHAM PLAY BENFICA IN THE EUROPEAN CUP SEMI-FINAL APRIL 5.

    TOTTENHAM:-
    BROWN: BAKER: HENRY: BLANCHFLOWER: NORMAN: MACKAY: MEDWIN: WHITE: SMITH (R): GREAVES: JONES.
