Johnson confident Leeds can upset Liverpool in Cup

Leeds United striker Bradley Johnson insists they can upset Carling Cup opponents Liverpool tomorrow night.

Johnson said: "We are confident we can win. We are unbeaten in a lot of games and you have seen teams like Burnley last year when they beat Chelsea and who knows.

"We are not expected to win. Liverpool are a top team and looking to win the Premier League. It is a cup match - anything can happen."

Manager Simon Grayson agreed after watching his side outplay the Gills to go back to the top of League One.

He said: "We are in great shape before the game. I want them to enjoy themselves because they will not get many better chances to express themselves against the best players in the world.

"Nobody expects us to win apart from the Leeds fans in the ground and us in the dressing room.

"We have confidence. We feel that ­regardless of who we are playing at home we can beat them."
