Dalglish outlines Bellamy importance

Craig Bellamy's assist for Andy Carroll's winning header in the FA Cup semi-final against Everton outlines his importance to the Liverpool cause, according to Kenny Dalglish.

The Welsh forward whipped a free-kick into the Everton penalty area, which allowed Carroll to leap above Marouane Fellaini and steer the Reds into their first FA Cup final for six years.

Liverpool have secured positive results more often than not with Bellamy in their team this season, and the acquisition of the 32-year-old on a free transfer last summer has proven to be a shrewd move by Dalglish.

The Liverpool manager has often praised the work ethic of Bellamy this season, and his lead on the training ground is one the Reds' younger players would be foolish not to follow.

This is certainly the case when it comes to Bellamy honing his skills with set-pieces, as Dalglish explains.

"Craig's delivery for Andy's strike was perfect," Dalglish wrote in his LFC Weekly Magazine column.

"It always is when the ball finishes in the back of the net. His delivery is normally great; that is because he practises it so much in training.

"It shows that what you do on the training ground pays off. It's not the first time Craig has delivered a ball like that. He's delivered lots of good set-pieces this season. He did it at Chelsea in the Carling Cup when Martin Kelly scored."
