Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish isn't bothered about the seven-year hoodoo Birmingham City have on the Reds.

Emile Heskey, Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen were the scorers the last time Liverpool overcame Birmingham in a league match back in May 2004 - but Dalglish isn't concerning himself with history.

"The past doesn't matter," he told "It's what happens on Saturday that's going to determine the result.

"Obviously we'd love it to change and improve our record against them."
