Wigan "lucky" to get through this tie. Having trailed 2-0 for a long time, a knock on by George Hesketh was apparently missed by the referee and Johnny Ring "dribbled over the line" to score whilst Rochdale were appealing and not playing to the whistle. That put Wigan 3-2 ahead on 55 minutes. Before that moment Rochdale had "played so strongly they never seemed likely" to lose their narrow lead, but afterwards Wigan controlled the game and Jim Sullivan hit a long range penalty goal to complete the scoring.
