Defeated Dalglish defiant

Published Add your comment

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish was in defiant mood after seeing his side's hopes of Champions League qualification dealt a potentially fatal blow following a 1-0 defeat at Sunderland.

Nicklas Bendtner's second-half strike was enough to condemn the Merseysiders to a third successive Barclays Premier League defeat which left them 10 points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal. However, Dalglish was refusing to be drawn into an assessment of their chances of closing that gap during the remaining 11 games of the campaign.

Dalglish said: "We will say what we said at the very first game of the season - we will play all the matches, count the points up and see where we finish then. If we could maybe get fourth spot, it would be fantastic for the football club, but winning the Carling Cup was fantastic, getting into the sixth round of the FA Cup is more than where we have been for a little while."
