Spurs 5 Huddersfield 5

As the scoreline shows a cracking battle between the Huddersfield, reigning League champions for the last two seasons, and a Spurs side now fully established as a Division One power after their FA Cup triumph four years earlier.

Huddersfield under the guidance of soon-to-be Arsenal boss Herbert Chapman were a direct, physical side a direct contrast to the refined swift passing Spurs side but in wet, slippery conditions, both teams adapted well.

The Terriers led 2-1 after just 13 minutes in a blistering start to the game but Spurs hit back through Jimmy Dimmock and a Tommy Clay penalty to make it 3-2 midway through the second half.

The Yorkshire side hit back through Jackson to level the scores but once more Spurs got their noses in front with two goals in a minute from Osborne and Elkes which looked to have sealed the victory.

However, the turning point of the game was an injury to Spurs' master craftsman Jimmy Seed who was knocked unconscious by Wadsworth. Seed's absence was a huge loss to his teammates and Huddersfield clawed their way back into the game with another Jackson goal and just four minutes from time they rescued a point with a goal from Brown.

Team: Hinton, Clay, Forster, Skinner, B. Smith, Grimsdell, Osborne, Seed, Lindsay, Elkes, Dimmock.
