Dalglish confident over semi date

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is confident the Football Association will make the right decision and ensure their Wembley FA Cup semi-final does not clash with the anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

The Reds booked their place in the last four with a 2-1 win over Stoke at Anfield and the games are scheduled to be played on the weekend of April 14 and 15, the latter date being exactly 23 years since the death of 96 fans at the Sheffield ground.

Liverpool have always had special dispensation to avoid matches on that date and Press Association Sport understands the club have already contacted the FA to remind them of the significance of that date. Dalglish said: "We won't play on the 15th."
