  • - Bury had to play most of the match with ten men because their right-half Brian Turner was injured during the build-up to Liverpool's opening goal in the first minute. Turner collided with his team-mate Brian Gallagher. He resumed briefly after treatment but was forced to hobble off permanently shortly afterwards.
