  • Moran's own goal described in the Liverpool Echo: "After 21 minutes came another blow to Liverpool with an own goal by Moran. The leading up work was by Lawrie again who slipped through Liverpool’s defence like quicksilver, crossed the ball low and Moran running in to intercept, turned it into his own net."
