Tottenham Hotspur look like losing out in their bid to land a first league title since their double season of 1960-61.

But as Leicester City close in on their first crown, there are clubs who have been waiting far longer than Spurs to reclaim the trophy.

They include Huddersfield Town, whose won the last of their three successive titles in 1926.

That 90-year wait is ‘bettered’ by three clubs.

West Bromwich Albion won their only title in 1920 (Town were promoted from the original Division II, now Championship, that season).

Sheffield United claimed their sole crown in 1897-98, 10 years before Town were formed.

And the second of Preston North’s End’s consecutive championships came in 1890.

The season before, the Lancastrians won both the inaugural Football League title and the FA Cup.

Amazingly, the first double winners went through the entire season unbeaten, and won the FA Cup without conceding a goal.

Preston’s last major trophy was their 1-0 FA Cup final success against Town at Wembley in 1938.

Since their 1926 title triumph, Town have three times finished league runners-up (in 1927, 1928 and 1934) and twice been third (1936 and 1954).

Andy Beattie managed the 1953-54 side, and Jimmy Glazzard top-scored with 29.
