Liverpool boss Dalglish delighted with spotkick hero Brad Jones

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish was delighted for Brad Jones after his spotkick save in victory at Blackburn Rovers.

Dalglish praised Jones, who as third-choice goalkeeper is now in line to play in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final, and matchwinner Andy Carroll for their contributions.

"I think Brad had a bit of a psychological advantage because the two (he and Yakubu) had been at Middlesbrough together," he said.

"It was a great first contribution in the Premier League to save a penalty, I am sure he will remember that.

"I think Andy is very confident and got what he deserved. He worked really hard and scored a fantastic header - I don't think confidence is a problem."
