Key note: “In a very good match at Anfield Road, Cardiff City scored twice and gained a highly creditable victory. On a mild afternoon there were forty thousand people present, and much excitement prevailed over a thrilling encounter. The Cardiff forwards soon asserted themselves, Len Davies scoring. Thanks to Farquharson, Cardiff City kept their lead. The high standard of play was maintained after change of ends, Liverpool showing to much advantage, but nothing went right for them, and in a break-away the Cardiff forwards got clean through. Scott was lured from his goal, and Ferguson found an open way between the posts. That second goal made Cardiff pretty sure of victory, and when Pratt was hurt and had to go outside left Liverpool had no chance of pulling the game round.” (Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer: December 14, 1925)
