Kenny Dalglish and Steve Clarke
KENNY DALGLISH believes the attitude and unity of his players has helped take Liverpool FC to the brink of equalling a club record.
Liverpool FC are at Fulham in the Premier League this evening aiming to secure their seventh successive away victory.
Only twice before have Liverpool FC achieved such a landmark, first between December 1981 and February 1982 and then again between January and March 1988.
Kenny Dalglish, who was involved in both those runs as first player and then manager, accepts the fortune that has perhaps eluded his team at Anfield this season has helped their success on the road.
But the manager has hailed an indomitable team spirit as the main contributory factor.
“The players have gone about their work the same way away as they have at home, but we haven’t got the result our performances have deserved at Anfield,” said Dalglish.
“But away from home, maybe we’ve had at times that little bit of luck that helps you go over the line.
“The players’ attitude has been fantastic. And if that’s right, then there’s a fair chance of us winning.
“We are plodding on. How the players go about their work and their quality will give them their reward. We’ve beaten some good teams and we’ve deserved it on the day. We are still a work in progress and we will continue to work, and we have to remember how we got those rewards – by working for each other and playing for each other.
