Wednesday, December 7 – 1910
Liverpool are to fulfill the second of their seven matches down for this month on Saturday, the “Reds” being due to oppose another Lancashire team in Bury. Both clubs are in low water, and it behaves both to make a big effort to get out of the lower places. Liverpool’s position is very serious, and it will be necessary for the team to make considerable improvement if they are to gain a position of merit.
There is no getting away from the fact that the matches ahead are of the stiffest possible character, especially as five of the next seven matches are away from home. The Livers looked like pulling through at Oldham last Saturday after they had equalised, but they fell away to nothing.
They will require all the staying power they possess during the forthcoming contents, and I trust the players will rise to the occasion. I understand that Hardy is all right again, and he may play on Saturday; but with Beeby in goal there is no weakness between the posts.
Bury have disappointed their friends recently and they are anxious do well against Liverpool. The Gigg Laners are a point better off than their rivals. Hibbert’s men claiming 12 points for 15 games, and Liverpool 11 points for 15 games. Only Manchester City and Bristol are worse off than the “Reds” as regards points, and it is plain that the Anfield men make a spurt.
