Players Goals (League and Cup)

Darren Anderton

41st Minute Penalty: With the score 1-0 to Ipswich Town on the opening day of the Premiership, Spurs were trying everything they could to get back on level terms. Steven Carr's run into the penalty area saw him be hauled down by keeper Richard Wright and the referee gave a penalty! Anderton stood up to take it, and belted it home into the back of the net with Richard Wright diving in the right direction.

Steve Carr

42nd Minute: Spurs had already grabbed a goal back and one minute later, Steve Carr ran through into the penalty area and from a very acute angle Steve slid the ball into the back of the net taking a slight touch of Ipswich keeper Richard Wright!

Les Ferdinand

81st Minute: Spurs leading 2-1 with ten minutes to go and there was no time for slacking from Tottenham. Ipswich pressing forward at every available opportunity and causing Spurs a few scares. So when substitute Les Ferdinand scored from Anderton's cross, Spurs fans were allowed to breath a slight sigh of relief. Steve Carr again broke forward into the penalty area and he pulled the ball back for Anderton who found Ferdinand unmarked to head the ball home from 8 yards out! 

62nd Minute: Spurs had just pulled the scores back from 2-0 to 2-2 and within a minute of Rebrovs equalizer, Ferdinand scooped his low header up and over Everton keeper Paul Gerrard to give Spurs an amazing lead. Play began when Steve Carr's deep cross found Sub Stephen Clemance who chipped in a delightful cross for Sherwood to head the ball into the path of Ferdinand who, under pressure, scooped the ball over Gerrard and Spurs went on to win the game 3-2!

Oyvind Leonhardsen

41st Minute: Spurs had been under pressure from the beginning of the game, but Spurs settled and reversed the roles. Spurs, building patiently from the back, found Rebrov out wide as he played for cover for Anderton, then he swung in a beautifully chipped in ball and there was Leonhardsen to head home and give Spurs the lead. Spurs went on to gain a good point away from home!

51st Minute: Oyvind Leonhardsen scored Tottenham's first goal in 4 matches even though the Tottenham crowd were beginning to get on their backs. But Leonhardsen kept strong and latched on to Tim Sherwood's flick to head the ball beyond the impressive Gustafson to give Spurs an aggregate lead of 1-0!

Sergei Rebrov

41st Minute: Spurs losing 2-0 at this stage in the game and a goal would be vital for Spurs. A free kick whipped in by the excellent Stephen Clemance, and Sol Campbell reached out and touched the ball on too the post and Everton failed to clear the ball out and in front of all the scrap, Rebrov was there to Cooley stroke the ball home from 18 yards out.

60th Minute Penalty Sergei Rebrov levels the scores for Spurs after Cooley slotting home a penalty on the hour mark for Spurs. A corner stroked in by Clemance was headed by Sol Campbell and seemingly towards the back of the net, but Tomas Graveson poked the ball away with his hand and a penalty was given. Rebrov wanted it and got it. He stroked it home to give Spurs a half deserved victory!

Sol Campbell

67th Minute: Sol Campbell scored his 1st goal for 18 months for Spurs in an important victory over London rivals West Ham! Steve Carr won a corner for Spurs with 25 minutes to go. Leonhardsen provided a superb cross for the rising Sol Campbell to head the ball into the back of the net with some power to give Spurs the lead. Marker Frederick Kanoute failed to respond to Campbell to virtually give him a free header at the near post. Sols header actually rebounded off the bar and back in off Hislop's head and that goal proved to be Tottenham's winner!

Steffen Iversen

81 Minute: Steffen Iversen scored his first goal of the season in a less then convincing performance at White Hart Lane. Spurs took the lead through Leonhardsen after 51 minutes and with just under 10 minutes to go, Steffen Iversen scored. Oyvind Leonhardsen wriggled his way thought the Brentford defence and managed to get a shot in which was well saved from Gustafson, however, he only managed to deflect the shot to Iversen feet and he easily belted the ball into the back of the net to put Spurs into the next round of the Worthington Cup!
