A Strong Derby Beat Liverpool
Saturday 1 November 1969
Derby 2 (Hector 36, 49)
Liverpool 1 ( Callaghan 45)

With Liverpool 1-0 down and half time almost upon them, Callaghan heads forward for an equaliser.
Callaghan passes to St John and continues his run.
St John quickly flicks the ball back to Callaghan and he’s through the Derby defence.

Early in the second half and Derby are attacking with first goalscorer Hector.
Anything you can do, I can do better. Hector passes to Hinton.
Hinton plays a quick one-two with Hector.
From a tight angle on the edge of the box, Hector doubles his goal tally with a sublime shot that beats Lawrence and wins the game for Derby.
