Birmingham chairman Gold hopes Liverpool field weakened team
Gold admitted ahead of the St Andrew's clash: "We need every bit of help we can get because we are fighting for our lives.
"I remember a couple of years ago we went to West Ham and got beaten 3-0 by their full first-team.
"A week or so later they were playing our relegation rivals Portsmouth two days before an FA Cup quarter-final.
"They put out their 'ladies' team and lost 4-2, a result that went a long way towards us going down. I expect Liverpool to play a weakened side against us."
