  • Assist: Ronnie Starling. Britton started the movement and gave the ball to Starling. Starling dribbled a little and seemed about to pass out to Johnson, certainly the defence expected it but suddenly he changed his direction and put the ball along the ground to Steele, who ran on to it and, from some 10 yards range, crashed it past Dawson.
