April 22, 1946
Key note: “Liverpool did well to take a point from Grimsby, at Blundell Park, especially after making the long journey overnight, and so played their seventh successive game without defeat. It was a match of changing fortunes, with a draw a fair reflection of the play, because each side had about the same number of scoring opportunities. Honours went to the defences. Liverpool have taken four points from the Easter games, and eleven out of the last fourteen played for, which is good going.” (Liverpool Echo: April 23, 1946)
