  • Johnny May temporarily kicked out of club by Horace Wilkins after an incredibly rare poor performance from the goalkeeper. May had previously protested about the pitch conditions at half-time but to no avail.
  • Johnny May concedes a penalty kick for the first time in his career after his initial save was ordered to be retaken
  • Stanley's eighth goal was the result of a melee and therefore the goalscorer was inconclusive
