* A few minutes before the finish Liverpool equalised. Hewitt, who, was a big improvement on the Hewitt of the first half, set Orr going, and the latter gained a corner. This was admirably placed by Cox, and ORR headed through, amid a scene of tumultuous cheering. It was a well-deserved point, and brought “Ronald’s” score for the season up to he “15” mark.
