The Liverpool goals:
* Goddard put in some neat work on the right, and followed with a capital centre, ORR meeting the ball with his head and scoring, McBride being completely beaten.
* Five minutes after securing the first goal Liverpool enlarged their lead, PARKINSON, by a fine individual effort, eluding the defence and finding the target with a low shot.
* Liverpool’s third goal was the result of a nice breakaway by Goddard, who after running half the length of the field came into contact with McBride who came out to meet him. McBride fell on to the ball, but recovering it Goddard sent over to BOWYER, wo with an open goal made no mistake in netting it.
