Rodgers focused on Stags

Published Add your comment

Consistency issues have dogged Liverpool all season but manager Brendan Rodgers insists an FA Cup tie at a non-League ground holds no fears for him.

The Reds head to Blue Square conference side Mansfield on Sunday on the back of two successive Barclays Premier League wins, but they have won three games in a row only once since October 2011 and that was last month when victories over Southampton and West Ham sandwiched a tight Europa League success over Udinese.

And while Rodgers is set to rest key players like Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard, he remains confident they have enough to get through the third-round tie - something Liverpool have failed to do in three of the last six years. And he said: "Our preparation is exactly the same as if we were playing Manchester United and our focus is to go there and win."
