- The Liverpool team's coach did not leave Anfield until 5.45 p.m., was badly held up in traffic and only arrived at Deepdale in time for the scheduled kick-off thanks to a Police escort. So many Liverpool supporters travelled by road to this match that Bill Shankly later commented that it had been the largest away exodus in the history of the club.
