Twentyman's own goal described in the Daily Post: "The first goal came when Kelly struck the crossbar and the ball travelled across the Liverpool goal-face where Twentyman was in a position to clear. He tried to get his instep to the ball and hook it out. Instead he toe-ended it and it was in the net in the 35th minute."
