Liverpool away date set

West Ham United can confirm the away game against Liverpool will take place at 8pm on Wednesday 5 March.

The Barclays Premier League fixture at Anfield was originally due to be played back in August but was postponed because of Liverpool's Champions League qualifying commitments. The new date became open because Liverpool cannot play the second leg of their last-16 tie at Inter Milan that night because AC Milan are also at home. The Reds will instead travel to Italy a week later.

West Ham United's trip to Anfield is a fixture that will have particular significance for Craig Bellamy, with the forward having left Liverpool to move to east London back in the summer. The two teams are also due to meet at the Boleyn Ground on Wednesday 30 January. Liverpool are fourth in the top flight, six places and seven points ahead of Alan Curbishley's side.
