Carling Cup: Brighton 1-2 Liverpool

Craig Bellamy and Dirk Kuyt fired Liverpool into the fourth round of the Carling Cup as Brighton were dispatched 2-1 on Wednesday night.

The Reds became the first giant to visit the new Amex Stadium and came away worthy winners after Bellamy hit his 10th goal for the club early in the game and Kuyt finished the job late on.

The one blot came with minutes to spare as substitute Ashley Barnes smashed home a penalty.

A productive night for Kenny Dalglish was made even sweeter by the return of Steven Gerrard from injury.

Liverpool will now await Saturday's draw as their quest to reach the new Wembley for the first time continues.

The visiting teamsheet was most notable for a player not in the XI - our club captain being named among seven substitutes after six months in the treatment room.

As in round two, the starters were familiar names. Bellamy, Kuyt, Luis Suarez, Jamie Carragher, Lucas Leiva and Pepe Reina were all on duty, while Uruguayan new boy Sebastian Coates was granted a full debut after a substitute appearance at White Hart Lane.
