Footymad preview History of the Tottenham Hotspur v West Bromwich Albion fixture

West Bromwich Albion face a trip to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Baggies will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 33 and win only 15 of the 65 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2011, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Premier League match.
