Reds at Maine Road


September 12, 1941
Manager Mr. George Kay has still some doubt about the constitution of the Liverpool side to face Manchester City at Maine-road tomorrow.

Dick Dorsett will be back at inside left and there is a possibility that Billy Fagan will have his first game of the season with the Reds.

Mr. Kay has secured permission to play Batey, the tall, experienced Preston North End players, at centre half, and he will bring that essential experience to bear in a young defence. It will make all the difference.

Liverpool (from): Alf Hobson, Charlie Fazackerley, Ray Lambert, Harry Kaye, Dennis Cooke, Bob Batey, Eddie Spicer, Billy Liddell, Stan Palk, Cyril Done, Willie Fagan, Dick  Dorsett, Billy Hall.
