There was little to choose between Liverpool and Bolton Wanderers, and a goalless draw was a fair reflex upon the general run of the play. Once again Bolton showed themselves to be a fine Cup-fighting side. The first half was most exciting, and Riley, the Liverpool goalkeeper, often rescued his side when the visitors threatened danger. Butler and McClelland once went clean through, but Bromilow held them up when Riley looked like being beaten. Later Liverpool came into their own, and it was only the grand goalkeeping of Pym which kept them out.
