  • Description

    ENGLISH FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION CUP FAVOURITES, TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS, TOOK ANOTHER BIG STRIDE TOWARDS THE WEMBLEY FINAL TODAY (SATURDAY) WHEN THEY BEAT SECOND DIVISION PRESTON NORTH END 3 - 1. SPURS HOLD THE CUP AND LOOKED GOOD TODAY WITH JIMMY GREAVES COMING OUT OF A BAD FATCH TO SCORE TWICE.

    IT WAS A POOR FIRST-HALF WITH TRADITIONAL CUP TENSION AFFECTING THE PLAYERS. SPURS WENT INTO THE LEAD AFTER SEVERAL NEAR-MISSES. IN THE 30TH MINUTE GREAVES PUT THE FINISHING TOUCH TO A GOOD MOVE BY MACKAY AND KNOWLES.

    EIGHT MINUTES LATER THE ROAR OF THE SPURS SUPPORTERS PACKING WHITE HART LANE DIED IN THEIR THROATS AS SECOND DIVISION PRESTON SHOWED SOME OF THE FORM WHICH HAS GIVEN THEM QUITE A REPUTATION IN CUP GAMES. GEMMELL PRODUCED THE SHOT OF THE DAY WHICH REBOUNDED OFF THE POST TO BE HAMMERED HOME BY RAY CHARNLEY.

    SO AT HALF TIME THE MATCH WAS STILL IN THE BALANCE WITH A GOAL EACH. BUT NOW SPURS CAME OUT OF THE DRESSING ROOM WITH A DIFFERENT APPROACH AND VERY SOON WERE IN COMMAND. THE SECOND GREAVES GOAL SHOWED WHAT A GREAT FORWARD HE IS WHEN HE'S ON FORM. ONCE AGAIN MACKAY AND KNOWLES MADE THE GROUND, BUT IT WAS A FLASHING HEADER FROM GREAVES THAT PUT THE BALL IN THE BACK OF THE NET.

    MARTIN CHIVERS, BRITAIN'S MOST EXPENSIVE PLAYER, HAD RATHER A QUIET GAME. BUT HE SEALED PRESTON'S CUP CHANCES BY PUTTING IN A THIRD GOAL FOR SPURS IN THE 72ND MINUTE.
