September 5, 1892
Quick note: “Liverpool played a very good game, but not so good as what they are capable of when the front rank is intact. The shots which scored were awkward ones, the ball skimming through high up under the corner, so that Sydney Ross could hardly be blamed for allowing the ball to pass.”
