Nottingham Forest 2 - 2 Liverpool

Opposition goals


  • - Average age of the Liverpool starting lineup: 28.63
  • - Average age of the Nottingham Forest starting lineup: 28.75
  • - The scorer of the second LFC goal is somewhat confusing, as the Saturday Echo gives it as Done, the Post gives as Paisley and the Express says Jones. The Times and Guardian both give this as Done. However, according to the Echo and Express for the following Monday the players themselves confirmed that it was in fact Paisley who scored: "Practically every Liverpool player joined in the goal onslaught as time petered out and when Liddell centred several rushed in. Bill Jones played it towards goal but the lads assured me after that Paisley actually gave it the final touch to give the Reds another chance when all seemed lost," reported the Monday Echo. -Thanks to Graeme and Reg Riley.
