Spurs made their debut in the Football League and gained promotion by the narrowest of margins - by a goal difference of less than two-hundreths of a goal. Equal on points with WBA Spurs had a goal difference of 2.09375 and WBA 2.074074. If Spurs had conceded just one more goal or West Brom had scored one more the positions would have reversed.
