Jimmy Greaves’ goal is disallowed [photo: Logan Holmes]Tottenham responded to the set-back as only they knew how – with even greater effort, roared on by the crowd, and in the 29th minute it looked as if they had drawn level on the night when Greaves put the ball in the net. He volleyed home from a back-header by Smith but it wasn’t to be as the ‘goal’ was disallowed by the referee after consulting his linesman. Afterwards Greaves told reporters,

"I thought my ‘goal’ was on-side. I was very surprised when the referee disallowed it."
