Liverpool F.C.’s form and figure

Friday, September 21 – 1917
For the third and – last time? One never knows. Three weeks with nothing but victory makes us “want more,” but we must not become drunk with confidence. That way a trip-up lies. Certainly Liverpool will need to play their best, because those who were at Bolton last week say that Kenneth Campbell had ticklish work to get through, and did it in his accomplished and natty styles. Had there been a goalkeeper of less experience, the goal score would not have favoured Liverpool to such a degree.

It should not be a walk-over at Anfield tomorrow, because we know our Liverpool well, and we recognise that they will make a game of any opposition. Personally, I shall go there expecting a sporting and rousing game. The teams will line up in this manner: –

Liverpool: Kenneth Campbell, Ephraim Longworth, Tommy Lucas, John Bamber, Walter Wadsworth, Donald Mackinlay, Robert Waine, Arthur Metcalf, Thomas Bennett, Harry Lewis, Tommy Cunliffe.

Bolton Wanderers: W. Ellison, A. Baverstock, Jimmy Nuttall, Tom Buchan, A.N. Other, P. Clayton, Jack Pickup, P. Kelly, Bob Geddes, Wally Davies, Alf Winterburn.

Referee: Mr. Alderson, of Newton-le-Willows.
