Sergeant gives this result as the result of the match between Skipworth and Rosenthal. The Chess Player's Quarterly Chronicle, however, makes it clear that this was a result in a few 'steadily contested' casual games, while only three games of the actual match were played with result +2-0=1 for Rosenthal (recorded separately here).
