Liverpool v Leicester City 1-1 (League match: February 8, 1930)

February 8, 1930
Key note: “Liverpool were fortunate to share the points with Leicester City – fortunate in so far that the play revealed the Leicester players as the greater craftsmen, while Liverpool were, in the main, concerned in defensive methods. Hopkin was the danger carrier for Liverpool, and from his breakaway, particularly in the first half, scoring chances were offered that came to naught. The half-backs of Leicester were better in support than the home trio, of whom Bradshaw, while improving upon his previous displays, is still slow to the tackle. McDougall was inclined to over-dribble, not a profitable move against Duncan, but Gardner, again deputising for Morrison, was full of energy and difficult to shake off.” (Athletic News: February 10, 1930)
