December 10, 1955
Key note: “Liverpool’s run of consecutive home victories was ended when least expected by a tough and determined Barnsley side which fought every inch of the ground as though their lives depended on it. Liverpool had most of the play territoriality, but could not break down the opposition. This was Barnsley’s sixth away draw. They will get plenty more if they always fight like this. Liverpool turned out some minutes before the start attired in maroon track suits, which they only doffed a few seconds before the kick-off. The bad weather had its effect upon the attendance, which was well below average.” (Liverpool Echo: December 10, 1955)
