Dalglish keen to avoid Norwich disappointment

Kenny Dalglish says he is desperate to avoid a repeat of the 1-1 draw against Norwich from earlier this season when the two clubs meet on Saturday.

 

Liverpool bossed proceedings at Anfield in October but were forced to settle for a point after Grant Holt’s equaliser salvaged a draw for the Canaries.

 

The game epitomised many of the frustrations felt by Liverpool, especially at Anfield, where they have often failed to convert strong performances into points.

 

The Reds have picked up just five wins at home all season but have managed nine draws, and that is an issue Dalglish is keen to address, starting with the game against Norwich.

 

It was a mirror image of most of the games we've played there," Dalglish told Liverpool’s official site. "We had many opportunities and either the goalkeeper made a magnificent save or we hit the bar and the post. We had plenty of chances."

 

Despite his frustrations against the Canaries, Dalglish had nothing but praise for their manager Paul Lambert, who has all but secured his side’s place in the Premier League for next season with three games remaining.

 

"They play the way Paul Lambert has been brought up, through his career in Scotland and obviously in Germany,” Dalglish commented.

 

"He's got his principles and beliefs from the places he's been, and it's a wee bit ironic that he got the job on the back of beating them 7-1 at Carrow Road.

 

"He's done a fantastic job. They've done fantastic in the Premier League, and they got back-to-back promotions to get there.

 

"Paul spent very wisely in the summer and got a lot of decent players in."
