On This Day

January 5th
1957
A classic encounter
Ralph Guthrie is beaten by Liam Whelan's seventh minute opener for Manchester United. It looked like Fred Westgarth's men were in for a hammering when the visiting Babes coasted into a three goal lead, but a stirring fightback eventually saw Pools miss out in a seven goal thriller.
