Key note: “Liverpool had a dour battle with Sunderland at Roker Park where despite dominating play for lengthy spells, they found it difficult to break down a stubborn rearguard. Liverpool were unchanged with 21 year-old Scot John McGregor, signed 18 months ago from Queens Park and yet to play in a first team game, as substitute.” (Liverpool Echo: February 4, 1984)
