Jones set for Reds bow

Goalkeeper Brad Jones could make his Liverpool debut against Northampton in the third round of the Carling Cup at Anfield tomorrow.

The Australia international has sat on the bench for four matches since his late-August move from Middlesbrough to become Jose Reina’s deputy but he is set to be given an outing against the League Two side.

Manager Roy Hodgson will make numerous changes with many of his first team stars rested, giving fringe and reserve team players – some of whom featured in the Europa League victory against Steaua Bucharest last week – another chance.

Team (from): Jones, Kelly, Agger, Kyrgiakos, Wilson, Lucas, Spearing, Pacheco, Babel, Jovanovic, Ngog, Bouzanis, Darby, Amoo, Eccleston, Shelvey, Ince, Suso.
