I would like to know who scored the Scottish goals in the match vs England on 1st April 1893.

Some football websites have 2 goals for Sellar, others have Waddell and Sellar.

Some differences on the websites about the minutes of the Scottish goals. I am asking for your help also about these:

1st goal (20th , 25th, or 30th)

2nd goal (47th or 55th)

Thank you so much.

On Monday 3 April 1893 the Sporting Life newspaper gave a very detailed report of the match and gave the scorers, some times and the sequence of the seven goals scored.

Gosling (England) 13 minutes
Waddell (Scotland ) 25 minutes
Sellars (Scotland) 3 minutes into the second half
Cotterill (England) 13 minutes into the second half
Spikesley (England) - no time given
Spikesley (England) (“almost immediately afterwards” the previous goal
Reynolds (England) - no time given

I hope that this helps.
