FA Cup minute's silence will be poignant moment - Liverpool's Dalglish

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish admits this Saturday's FA Cup semi-final match will be a poignant moment for Merseysiders.

The Reds take on rivals Everton at Wembley, with a minute's silence preceding the match to remember the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy 23 years ago.

On that day, 96 Liverpool supporters were killed when the stadium collapsed during the semi-final against Nottingham Forest and Dalglish sees this weekend as a very poignant moment for all those who were affected by it.

"A minute's silence at Wembley. It's ironic that it's Liverpool and Everton at Wembley again, because that was the final that year," Dalglish said.

"It's going to be very emotive for everybody. The Evertonians were affected by Hillsborough as well as the Liverpool fans, with family members who never came home.

"It will be poignant and I'm sure both sets of fans will grace the minute's silence with the dignity they've shown since 1989."
