December 8, 1956
Key note: “This was a sub-standard game with neither side looking as though they had serious prentions to First Division membership. Liverpool, apart from flashes showed nothing of their usual fighting spirit, speed or determination and Forest were little better. One goal settled the issue but both teams had occasional narrow escapes.” (Liverpool Echo: December 8, 1956)
