Battle for survival v Notts County

March 11, 1898
This League match, which is played to-morrow at Anfield, should prove a very keen and interesting one. Notts County fancy they have a chance of escaping the tests, as they have obtained 5 points in their last three matches – namely, against Sheffield United, Bury, and Blackburn. Included in their team are two Liverpool lads, Tom Prescott and Alex Deighton.

As Liverpool are not clear of the tests, although they have five home and three away matches, it is to be hoped that the players will strain every nerve to get a couple of points tomorrow.

Up to going to press the team had not been selected. Kick off at four o’clock.
