Leeds United v Liverpool 2-2 (League match: February 2, 1929)

February 2, 1929
Key note: “For the second time this season Leeds United and Liverpool played a drawn game. Liverpool presented Leeds with a goal – Done obliged by kicking into his own net. That was United’s good luck. They had bad luck when they were not awarded a penalty for hands just before the close. It was a capital tussle, hard fought, and for the most part cleanly fought. It may be Leeds deserved more than a point, as they were more dangerous near goal. Riley had fifty per cent more work than Wilson (deputising for Potts), and the shots the Liverpool man had to deal with were better than those that came Wilson’s way.” (Athletic News: February 4, 1929)
