Scunthorpe United 0 - 1 Liverpool


  • - Average age of the Liverpool starting lineup: 26.89
  • - Average age of the Scunthorpe United starting lineup: 28.11
  • The Daily Mirror reported: "Liverpool are in the last eight – but they won’t get to Wembley on this form. Only two of their players were in control of the game for any length of time . . . wing halves Johnny Wheeler and Geoff Twentyman. For twenty minutes of the second half they pounded away at the iron-hard Scunthorpe defence. And inside forwards Jack Haigh and Ronnie Waldock – Scunthorpe’s first half danger men – were shut completely out. Liverpool’s all important goal came fifteen minutes from time. Alan A’Court cut the ball across goal and Bobby Murdoch slammed it in."
