October 2, 1943
Key note: “Liverpool scored their customary victory at Gigg Lane, but they had to fight desperately hard for their success by 2-1. It was not a good game. Rarely did one see a concerted movement, a movement which culminated in a shot or a save. The defences in the main held the upper-hand.” (Liverpool Daily Post: October 4, 1943)
