- Visiting goalkeeper Michael Finlayson had to leave the field between Liverpool's fourth and fifth goals after injuring a hand in making a save from a Peter Thoimpson shot. Finlayson was replaced in goal by forward Jimmy Murray with Leslie Edwards of The Liverpool Echo newspaper cruelly saying in his report that Murray could not do any worse in goal than he had done at outside-right!
