At Derby, before 12,000 spectators. Liverpool had three players and Derby County one engaged in the international match at Sheffield. The visitors pressed almost continuously during the first half, showing more opportunism than the Derby forwards, but at the interval no goals had been scored.
Derby played desperately in the second half without reward until a quarter of an hour from the close when three goals came in as many minutes. Leonard opened from a penalty, and Burton first ran the ball in, and then converted a centre by Thornwell.
Result: Derby County 3 goals, Liverpool none.
