    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Own goals by Mike Pejic and Colin Todd deflated an England team that struggled to cope with the pace and skill of a Scottish attack in which Peter Lorimer, Jimmy Johnstone, Kenny Dalglish and Joe Jordan were outstanding. Pejic deflected a Jordan shot into the England net in the fifth minute, and a harmless-looking cross was diverted past goalkeeper Peter Shilton by Todd in the thirty-first minute. England were vulnerable at the heart of the defence until Dave Watson replaced Norman Hunter as a conventional centre-half.
