The game between Liverpool and Preston North End at Liverpool proved a great attraction, and the 40,000 who attended saw Liverpool defeat Preston North End  by five goals to two. Six goals were scored in the opening half.

Chambers first scored in nine minutes, Forshaw added the second, and then Quantrill scored for Preston. Amid great excitement Bromilow added the third for Liverpool, only for Roberts to reply for Preston, and before the end of an exciting opening half Forshaw score the fourth Liverpool goal.

After Forshaw had added a brilliant goal for Liverpool, Duxbury, the Preston right back, owing to an injured ankle, left the field of play. Liverpool in each home match this season have scored five goals, and their players were certainly in better trim than those of Preston.
