Jackson aims to topple Liverpool

Last updated : 02 January 2004 By Luke Thornhill
The 27-year-old grew up supporting the Anfield giants, but insists that he would love to add to the pressure on under-fire Reds boss Gerard Houllier by helping Yeovil Town to a shock win in tomorrow's sell-out clash at Huish Park.

He said: "Don't doubt it for a second. I may be a Liverpool fan, but my loyalty is to Yeovil these days. If I'm lucky enough to get myself into a scoring position, I'll do everything in my power to finish it.

"Call it David versus Goliath or whatever, it does throw up the chance of a giant-killing."
Barnsley-born Jackson made four substitute appearances for the Iron after joining from Sheffield Wednesday in July 1996, scoring once.

He was released at the end of the season, when he joined Chesterfield before moving onto Worksop, Darlington and Stevenage - eventually joining Yeovil in November 2002.
