We’re still in tie – Dalglish

Alan scored the only goal of the game with a 17th-minute penalty

after a clumsy foul by Sotirios Krygiakos. Dalglish told Channel

Five: “In the first 35 mins we were terrible, although they never

had a great deal of pressure. “To the boys’ credit in the second

half they picked themselves up a bit and increased the tempo to try

to get the equaliser.” The Scot claimed his side would still fancy

their chances in the return leg at Anfield, although acknowledged

they could not afford such a slow start. “At 1-0 you’ve got a

chance,” he added. “But the way we started off, if we play like

that at Anfield we won’t have any chance. “But there’s only one in

it. We go back to Anfield and see what happens there.”
