LEICESTER CITY vs SPURS - TOP FIVES - GOALS AGAINST THE FOXES

Terry Dyson - Spurs 2-0 Leicester - FA Cup Final - May 5, 1961
Arguably the most important goal in our history, the little winger flew in at the far post to bullet home a header from Bobby Smith's cross. Smith had earlier oppened the scoring but Dyson's goal secure the victory, the FA Cup - and the double.

Jimmy Greaves - Spurs 3-2 Leicester - Division One - October 5, 1968
Fans lucky enough to witness this goal at the Lane will tell you it was as good a goal that the maestro ever scored. Unfortunately, there were no TV cameras to capture it.

In a season of late goals, Christian delivered time and again - Hull away, Swansea away, Sheffield United away, Sunderland home - and at the turn of the year, another special strike from a free-kick late at the KP Stadium. Teeing up the ball 30 yards out at the left angle, most were waiting for a cross but Christian knew better and saw it home off the post
