Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has challenged his fringe players to show him what they can do.

The 60-year-old has made it clear the incentive is there for anyone to make a late, compelling case to be considered for Wembley.

"Every day in training if someone does well, or in any game, it never does them any harm," said Dalglish, who is bidding to steer Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 2006.

"If someone plays well against Brighton it gives you a problem for the team the following week. I've not got any idea what my team will be for Wembley.

"The target for us is to progress into the next round of the FA Cup. We are in a better position than we were a year ago - we were out of the FA Cup, out of the Carling Cup and tailed off in the league.

"Now we're four points off fourth spot, the fifth round of the FA Cup is coming up and we are in the Carling Cup final. We still have an awful lot to play for."
