Liverpool 1 Blackburn Rovers 0

The Reds left this one very late but a Kenny Dalglish goal eight minutes from time was enough to take the Reds in to the next round of the FA Cup.

The Anfield pitch had numerous areas of sand to cover the icy conditions around the ground but dominated the game. A total of seventeen corners to one highlights some of the Reds' domination of the game.

The goal finally came late on when Dalglish hit a half volley past Butcher. In the final minute Heighway hit a post which could have made the scoreline more realistic.
