Last time we met

Posted on 22 December 2000  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Oyvind Leonhardsen shot us to the top of the Premiership the last time we met Boro - but typical of a number of our away travels this season, it was a game we should have won.

Leo's magnificent header from Sergei Rebrov's cross put us ahead in the 39th minute after Steffen Iversen and Stephen Carr had both gone close.

Mark Summerbell levelled in the second half only for Les Ferdinand to have a goal disallowed with time running out. It ended 1-1.

"I'm delighted to be playing," said Leo at the time. "I had a lot of injury problems last season so it's great to be back in there and even better to score a goal. It was a great cross from Sergei Rebrov and I just jumped in front of Curtis Fleming and headed towards goal."
