Kuyt aims for run of form

Dirk Kuyt says he hopes last night’s 2-1 victory over Wigan at Anfield will start a surge of form that will propel the Reds back up the Premier League table.

David Ngog and Fernando Torres were on target as Liverpool overcame the Latics for only their fourth win in 16 games. The Reds care now in 6th place, 5 points behind 4th place Aston Villa and 13 points off league leaders Chelsea.

Kuyt said, “It’s a really important win. We showed we wanted to win and played good football for most of the game.

“Maybe we could have scored a few more goals, and we are disappointed to have conceded, but the most important thing is winning and that’s what we did.

“A victory will always lift confidence, but we live from game to game now and we just needed to make sure we beat Wigan.

“We can enjoy this result, and then we have to do the same again on Saturday and try to start a winning run of form.”

Liverpool next face Portsmouth this Saturday, before Wolves at home on Boxing Day and finish 2009 with Aston Villa away on 29th December.
