Notts County v Liverpool 1-0 (League match: February 26, 1920)

February 26, 1920
Key note: “On the authority of a wood merchant like Mr. William Harvey Webb we are told that ‘wood is going up.’ If Liverpool had got some woodwork a little out of the way at Trent’s side they would have won handsomely. The woodwork saved Streets, a little fellow, on five occasions, and Notts County got away with welcome points. It was an astonishing result, yet Liverpool in a measure have themselves to blame for not making a victory. It was in their hands to do so, for Notts crossed the half-way line on bare ten occasions in the second half and Liverpool continually pressed them back.” (Liverpool Echo: February 27, 1920)
