Oldham manager Paul Dickov hopes his players do not suffer stage fright when they encounter Kenny Dalglish on Friday night.

The npower League One side travel to Merseyside in the third round of the FA Cup to face Dalglish's Liverpool in pursuit of a huge upset. Dalglish's handling of the Luis Suarez affair has put the Anfield club under particular scrutiny of late.

Yet former Arsenal and Manchester City forward Dickov would prefer to look with relish upon the prospect of pitting his wits against a boyhood idol who once left him speechless in his formative years. He said: "For any youngster growing up in Scotland of my age, Kenny was a big hero."
