Birmingham City put the ball in the back of the net after just 6 minutes but the linesman flagged for offside so it was not allowed, West Bromwich scored after 24 minutes when Tommy Glidden crossed the ball towards W. G. Richardson as he attempted his shot he inadvertently fell, but Birmingham’s Ned Barkas touched the ball back to him and away from the Birmingham City’s goalkeeper, and Richardson was able to score the opening goal.

Birmingham’s Bradford equalised just after the 2nd half started with a 25-yard shot, but a minute later W. G. Richardson got his second of the game and to put WBA back in front.
