Liverpool will recall youngster
Peter Gulacsi from a loan spell at Hull City to help them cope
with a goalkeeping shortage ahead of Saturday's FA Cup
semi-final against Everton.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish will have to field
third-choice Brad Jones in the all-Merseyside clash at Wembley
Stadium because both of his senior keepers are suspended.
But he dismissed talk of a crisis following the 3-2 win at
Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday. "We don't have a problem going in
with any players, no problem whatsoever," he told reporters.
Kulacsi, a 21-year-old Hungarian who joined Liverpool five
years ago but has never made a first team appearance, has spent
time on loan at Hereford United, Tranmere Rovers and Hull.
"Goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi is set to be recalled from his
loan spell with the Tigers by parent club Liverpool," Hull said
on their official Twitter feed on Wednesday.
Liverpool's first choice keeper Spaniard Pepe Reina is
suspended after being sent off at Newcastle United in a Premier
League game on April 1.
Back-up Alexander Doni, who made his long-awaited debut
against Aston Villa on Saturday, is banned after the Brazilian
was shown a red card at Blackburn.
Jones, who came on after 26 minutes following Doni's
departure, is a 30-year-old Australian international.
However, until his appearance on Tuesday Jones had only
played twice for Liverpool in the League Cup and Europa League
since joining from Middlesbrough. The last of those two
appearances was in December 2010.
He had a mixed night against Rovers.
Jones saved Yakubu's penalty with his first touch
but was at fault for conceding another spot-kick from which
Yakubu equalised. His blushes were spared when Andy Carroll
headed home in stoppage-time to give Liverpool a 3-2 win.
"It was a great first contribution [from Jones] in the
Premier League to save a penalty, I am sure he will remember
that," said Dalglish.
Jones said the penalty save was in memory of his son Luca,
who died from leukaemia in November. His girlfriend gave birth
to a son Nico Luca a week ago.
