Key note: “Liverpool, without a First Division win at Anfield since November 15, were again in trouble this afternoon when Terry Hennessey scored his first goal for his new club to give Derby County a 14th minute lead. Often slow in the build-up, Liverpool rarely looked likely to break the defensive grip that Derby held on the game. Liverpool had their new-look team on show at Anfield with Ray Clemence and Doug Livermore included. ‘The Kop’ put on a great display of singing for the television cameras before the start, as being among the six finalists of the ‘Kop Choir’ contest jointly sponsored by the BBC and the Football League, they were filmed for the finals of the contest. Tommy Smith was Liverpool’s captain in place of Yeats.” (Liverpool Echo: February 28, 1970)
