Cardiff's Fowler fancies Liverpool shock

Cardiff City boss Dave Jones says Robbie Fowler is confident of upsetting former club Liverpool in the Carling Cup.

"He'll be totally focussed on playing and you can grasp that by him not wanting to do interviews," Jones said. "To go back is special, but all he wants to do is get his head down and put on a performance for Cardiff."

Reds fans still fondly call Fowler by his nickname 'God', even though the 32-year-old first departed almost six years ago, sold to Leeds in November 2001.

"He's had an unbelievable career at that football club [Liverpool], brought up locally and had fantastic achievements," Jones added.

"It's good for him going back with all his family and friends, but he's been back many times with Leeds and Manchester City.

"But basically he's a professional footballer and he just wants to do well.

"All the hype that goes on is for the supporters and the press."
