They work ball into the Sunderland goal area, Bobby Johnstone is obstructed in the penalty area. (this could have been a penalty). LV Roy Paul takes the indirect free kick, the ball is scrambled about the front of the goal before being sent just wide. The goal keeper Willie Fraser didn't know much about it as he was unsighted. SV Crowd. SV Manchester still attacking. Paddy Fagan neatly tracks George Aitken, centres along the goal line, the ball passes over Fraser's head but Stan Anderson is there to head away from Roy Clarke.

Manchester player nips in front and kicks it clear but is charged head over heels for his efforts. SV Crowd. SV Sunderland still attacking on their right wing. SV Don Revie, Manchester centre, is even deeper then usual as he collects the ball just outside his own goal area. He sends it towards right wing. GV Crowd. Half time score 0-0.
