Liverpool will pay tribute to former defender Gary Ablett with a minute's applause before Friday's FA Cup third-round tie at home to Oldham.

Ablett died on New Year's Day aged 46 after a 16-month battle against non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Black armbands will also be worn by the players of Liverpool, for whom Ablett made 147 appearances and won two league titles and an FA Cup.
