The Liverpool goals:
* Thirteen minutes after the resumption Liverpool took the lead as the result of SALISBURY, their outside left, who broke through at a big turn of speed and finally beat Coggins, who was much too slow in moving for a clearance. Salisbury’s shot hit the right-hand post, and the ball bounced across the goal, hitting the other post and swerving into the net, so that there was an element of fortune about the goal.
* A quarter of an hour from time Liverpool obtained their second goal. HODGSON was the scorer, but Salisbury deserved credit for the way in which he put the ball to his colleague.
