Key note: “The lesson of last night’s match at Anfield is that you can’t keep a good team down. Charlton Athletic, playing almost exhibition stuff in the second half, had Liverpool a goal down with three minutes to play and then all Anfield erupted twice – first to the equaliser by Hunt (88 min.) and then to the clinching goal (89 minutes) by A’Court. So Liverpool’s unbeaten home League record – they hadn’t lost at Anfield since have a closer call; they’ll never get, in such quick time, two goals to send their fans away vowing that they are as unpredictable as ever, even now they are safely back in the First Division!” (Liverpool Echo: May 1, 1962)
