The England full-back made his first appearance of the season as a
late substitute in the Premier League clash at the Britannia
Stadium. Johnson missed the start of the season with a thigh
problem and he could now be out again with the hamstring injury.
Johnson revealed on Twitter: “Can’t believe my luck at the mo. Done
my hammy again today! Hopefully be back soon!” The news will be a
blow for Reds boss Kenny Dalglish as fellow right-back Martin Kelly
is also recovering from a hamstring injury of his own.
