- Blackburn had to play for the final hour of the match with only ten men after their defender Bob Crompton had to leave the pitch because of an injury. Although he returned after treatment, he was effectively a 'passenger' for the rest of the match.

Liverpool were awarded a penalty kick while holding a 2-0 lead in the first half, a handball by defender Jack Eastham leading to the penalty award. Jack Cox took the kick but shot yards wide of John Joyce's goal.
