Liverpool win at home.
Liverpool met Notts County at Anfield in dull weather yesterday, before 25,000 spectators. Liverpool scored in eight minutes from a corner, when Cornwall headed into his own goal. Notts contested the issue strongly, their forwards being very clever, but they failed to finish off their good work.

After twenty minutes’ good play on the right Forshaw scored a second goal for Liverpool. The second half was keenly contested, but the play was not as good, though both goalkeepers made some fine saves.

Result: Liverpool 2 goals, Notts County none.
