Tottenham on this Day:

The 3rd Round FA Cup replay at White Hart Lane went to extra time and a penalty shoot-out before Tottenham defeated Peterborough United to progress to the next round. It was only the second Spurs Cup tie to be decided by the lottery of penalties.

19th January, 1994

Spurs won 5-4 on penalties

Scorer: Barmby

Team: Walker; Austin, Edinburgh; Samways, Calderwood, Sedgley; Barmby, Hazard (Kerslake), Anderton, Caskey, Campbell

Tottenham only earned a replay after surviving the first game by scoring a late equalizer from Jason Dozzell at London Road. The 3rd Round FA Cup replay went to extra time and then a penalty shoot out, the first at White Hart Lane since the UEFA Cup Final win in 1984.

Peterborough were in the 1st Division but rooted to the bottom of the table five points adrift of the other clubs although they had two games in hand. Spurs were in mid-table but their form was poor and in a run of 8 defeats in 9 games which took them into serious relegation trouble for the remainder of the season.

In the replay Spurs had taken an early lead through Nicky Barmby but once Peterborough United equalized, the game remained deadlocked.

Ian Walker became the hero when he saved the fourth ‘Posh’ penalty, while Spurs scored all five from Darren Caskey, David Kerslake, Darren Anderton, Barmby and Steve Sedgley, to go into the next round 5 – 4 on penalties.

That was the last penalty shoot-out won by Tottenham until their success in the Capital One Cup against Hull City at The Lane earlier this season.

    I remember the away game getting proper crushed standing behing the goal team was crap at the lane …we were lucky to get through awful team back then but I used to enjoy going much more than now

      Not a great team that badly missed the injured Sheringham and the goals he provided. We were knocked out at Ipswich in the next round and it became a battle against relegation which we avoided in the final games after the return of Teddy. COYS!
