Liverpool v Bury 2-2 (League match: September 10, 1906)

September 10, 1906
Key note: “With conditions ideal at Anfield yesterday afternoon, and with teams strongly represented, the game all through was fast and exciting. Bury are to be congratulated on making a draw with the champions, but they owed something to their sturdy defence. It must not be thought, however, that Bury were outplayed, indeed, they had quite as much of the game as Liverpool until towards the end, when the Shakers strengthened their defence, and successfully kept out Liverpool’s desperate attacks, the game ending two goals each. Liverpool did not quite show championship form, and with Dunlop weak, the visitors might with advantage have played more to the right wing.” (Manchester Courier: September 11, 1906)
