At Liverpool, before 50,000 people. The opening exchanges were in favour of the home team, Sheldon’s curling drive severely testing Pearson. Play was mostly confined to midfield, the respective defences being sound, and at the interval there was no score.

Resuming, play favoured the home side for a time, but the Albion defence was sound. At the other end Mackinlay headed out of goal with Scott out of his place. Play was fast, both goals escaping narrowly, but Liverpool had most opportunities, and a keen encounter ended without any goals being recorded.
