Spurs lost this game 1-0. They had opportunities but found Charlton goalkeeper Kiely in outstanding form.

In the ninth minute Kiely made two fine saves. First he saved from Revrov with his feet which gave Spurs a corner. From the corner Iversen took a shot but Kiely again saved his shot at the near post. Then Sullivan made a good save from Robinson. Johansson was bearing down on the Spurs goal before Carr made a good tackle to deprive him. Tarricco hit the Charlton crossbar with a shot. Robinson also hit the bar for Charlton.

Charlton scored the only goal after 39 minutes. Stuart sent forward a through ball which allowed Johansson to beat the Spurs offside trap. He found himself one-on-one with Sullivan and put the ball between the goalkeeper's legs to score.

Overall Spurs had the better of the second half. Johansson had another opportunity early on when Campbell missed the ball but his control let him down. Just before the sixtieth minute Kiely made the best save of the game from a Ferdinand half-volley. Iversen had a free header after sixty four minutes but headed wide. With five minutes to go Sullivan made another good save from Robinson.

On this occasion Charlton probably had the better of the game but Spurs managed to win 4-1 scoring three goals in the last twelve minutes. It was a rainy night which made conditions difficult.

Charlton took the lead after five minutes through Mark Kinsella. Mortimer crossed to Stuart in the box. He set up Kinsella who scored with a low hard shot into the bottom right hand corner of the net. Then Hunt set up Pringle but his shot was deflected.

Rufus appeared to foul Armstrong in the penalty area but the referee denied the claim. Campbell had a header from a Sherwood cross but could not direct it on target.

Charlton had an opportunity early in the second half when a Campbell error left Pringle free in the box. However Campbell then made a fine tackle to retrieve the situation. Armstrong had a chance but Petterson the Charlton goalkeeper saved.

Iverson equalised after fifty nine minutes. Sherwood and Iversen exchanged passes setting up Iversen who scored with a half-volley to the bottom left hand corner of the net. Spurs took the lead after seventy nine minutes from a diving Campbell header following an Anderton corner.

Walker made an instinctive save with his legs to prevent Hunt equalising and then made another fine save from Stuart. Nielsen and Ginola set up Dominguez for the third goal in the eighty ninth minute. Then Dominguez set up Ginola who scored the fourth a minute later. This defeat left Charlton in the relegation zone.
