It would be another 12 years before the two teams met again and Spurs did the 'double' over Wolves in the 1919-20 season with a 4-2 home win and a 3-1 away win.

Spurs and Wolves continued to meet in Division One up to the 1983-84 season and altogether 62 matches were played at that level with Spurs winning 30 games, Wolves winning 19 games and 13 games drawn.

The replay at Highbury was a comfortable 3-0 win for Spurs with goals from Garth Crooks (2) and Ricky Villa. Spurs went on to beat Manchester City in the Final.

The last meeting in the FA Cup came in the Fourth Round in 1996 with Wolves drawing 1-1 at White Hart Lane but losing the replay at Molineux 2-0 with Spurs goals coming from Ronnie Rosenthal and Teddy Sheringham.
