February 9, 1901
Key note: “Neither eleven had been sent away from head quarters to train, but Liverpool journeyed to Nottingham yesterday, and were quartered for the night at the Colwick Hall Hotel. Fred Spencer had not sufficiently recovered from his injury to take his place on the Notts right wing, and the home side was, therefore, identical with that which defeated the ‘Reds’ by three goals to nil in October, but the latter had two changes, which, on paper at any rate, were additional elements of strength, Dunlop and McGuigan displacing John Glover and Charles Satterthwaite. The weather was dull, but there was a tremendous crowd. The spectators flocked into the ground soon after two o’clock, excursion trains from Liverpool bringing a big contingent of the visiting club’s supporters.” (Nottingham Evening Post: February 9, 1901)
