It was a convincing win by Derby County over Liverpool, even though the score might suggest a tighter game. The home side were in total control, except for a lapse of concentration which allowed Liverpool to score a sublime goal. But Derby hit back early in the second half and eased themselves to victory.

With Liverpool 1-0 down and half time almost upon them, Callaghan heads forward for an equaliser.
