Notes

  • Player InjuriesJust before halt time "...Raymond Wilson cracked his own rib as he went sliding into a well timed tackle. Then Byrne, duputising briefly at left-back with more fire than he had shown at inside, twisted his knee as he evaded an opponent [47:52]." Bobby Charlton takes over at left-back.
