Liverpool at Rochdale will also find their way steeper than last week, when, let me tell you, Millership did not play! Rochdale have a much stronger chance at home than anywhere else. The fact is their supporters are exceedingly vigilant, and they are not slow to give their vocal chords vent.
Only experienced players can tell you the value of vocal support. Then Spotland’s ground has its peculiarities. Altogether I can see Liverpool’s undoubtedly strong side having a tough task unless they get in a goal early on.
Liverpool. – Billy Connell; Ephraim Longworth, Billy Jenkinson; John Bamber, Walter Wadsworth, Donald Mackinlay; Harold Wadsworth, Thomas Green, Tommy Bennett, Harry Lewis, George Schofield.
