    - Some sources might claim 'keeper Matt McQueen should be credited with an own goal but that is not our conclusion. Courier says, "Blyth, on receiving the ball, shot in when he was only a few yards away. McQueen caught the ball, but before he could throw it away Blyth was on him with full force and both he and the ball were bundled into the net." The Post says, "Blyth... from a pass by Henderson, he repaired the shortcoming by scoring a second goal for the homesters." Given that the Courier is more explicit, McQueen tried to throw the ball out but was challenged and the ball hit Blyth before going into the net = Blyth's goal.
