Wilson set for first Liverpool start in Cup

Danny Wilson is set for a first Liverpool start tomorrow night in the Carling Cup against Northampton.

The teenage defender signed from Scottish champions Rangers in the summer and could be in line to make his Reds debut in the Carling Cup third-round clash.

Wilson said: "To start a game for the first time would be special and I just hope the manager thinks I am ready. If not I will work even harder to try and make it happen.

"I was an unused substitute against Rabotnicki in our first home game of the season and the crowd were buzzing and there was a great atmosphere, so to play for the first time is something I am really looking forward to.

"I had never been to Anfield before that and I really enjoyed being part of it. It was good to see how the crowd reacts and get behind the team. That would be fantastic to get to Wembley. We have just got to take it one step at a time. There are no easy ties as cup football is a one off.

"Sometimes it's tough playing against a team from a lower league because this is their cup final and they are out to impress, and you know they will put everything into the game.

"We won't take our foot off the gas as we know complacency can sometimes kick in."
