Birmingham's Dann to turn Liverpool dream into reality

Birmingham City defender Scott Dann will fulfill a dream tonight by playing at Liverpool's Anfield.

Dann was born on Merseyside and used to be a Kop season ticket holder along with his father.

Twenty-two-year-old Dann has only played at Anfield once before - in a schoolboy game - and is relishing playing there in front of a full house as Blues look to build on their impressive draw with Manchester City.

He said: "I'm enjoying every game but this one will obviously be special having grown up in Liverpool and supported Liverpool as a lad.

"My dad used to take me until I started playing football myself of a weekend. We used to sit on the Kop. It was always a good atmosphere and I always said that I wanted to play there.

"I've worked hard to get where I am now and these are the rewards for all the hard work that I've put in. I can't wait to go there and I'll probably know most people in the ground. I can't wait for it."
