At Goodison park, before 5,000 spectators. Play for a long time was confined to midfield and neither keeper was seriously tested. The first danger came from Robinson on the home right, who tricked both Checkland and Parell, and centred to Wall, whose shot was charged down by Lamb almost on the goal line, when Baker looked well beaten.

Liverpool’s best chance fell to Smith, who, with only Bromilow to beat shot wide. Early in the second half Parker tested Baker, while Williams who played a great game hit the crossbar with a grand drive. The chief danger to Everton came from Lewis who sent in many shots, which Bromilow cleverly dealt with.

Matthews kept a close watch on Parker. It was not until the last minutes that any real life was introduced into the game and both Baker and Bromilow had to be very alert to keep out good shots. Parker, Brewster, and Wall made capital attempts for Everton and Lewis, Matthews, Johnson, and Checkland for Liverpool, but the game concluded with any score.
