September 1, 1973
Key note: “A hard fought game but short of shooting action – that was the way of it for Liverpool at Leicester this afternoon, in a battle between two well matched teams. But Toshack put the big Liverpool contingent of fans in happier mood with a fine headed goal shortly after the interval. Liverpool’s first change of the season brought in John Toshack in place of Phil Boersma.” (Liverpool Echo: September 1, 1973)
