Reina, Agger and Carroll get LFC friendly run out

on 5 August, 2012


Liverpool played a behind closed doors friendly with Rochdale at Melwood on Sunday afternoon, but the game was abandoned after a serious injury to Rochdale player Reece Gray.

Gray was taken to accident and emergency where he will undergo an ankle operation. He wrote on his twitter to say thanks to the LFC staff.

“Cant thank all the club doctors/physio’s enough that were on hand too assist me 2day at melwood… Really appreciate it #firstclass” he wrote.

Liverpool were leading the game 2-1 at the time of the injury, courtesy of goals from Glen Johnson and Nathan Eccleston.

The game had been arranged to help Daniel Agger with his match fitness, as explained by boss Brendan Rodgers on Friday.

The match also gave Pepe Reina his first action since returning to pre-season training later than any other players following Spain’s run to the Euro 2012 Final. While Lucas made his first start and Andy Carroll also started the game.

LFC: Reina, Johnson, Kelly, Agger, Robinson, Adam, Lucas, Shelvey, Eccleston, Carroll, Pacheco.
