Match reports:


The League leaders were at home to Liverpool, before 35,000 spectators, and as they scored a goal, their total for the season is now a hundred. The play slightly favoured Liverpool for ten minutes. Then Morris, securing the ball from Gregory, score the Albion’s hundredth League goal. A minute later Mackinlay equalised for Liverpool from a free kick given against Richardson, and at half time the teams were level with a goal each.

The visitors restarted strongly, but their forwards failed to make the most of opportunities. The Albion forwards were also below their usual form, Crisp alone playing convincing football. No scoring took place in this half.

Result: – West Bromwich Albion 1 goal, Liverpool 1 goal.
