DANNY WILSON is hoping to get the opportunity to impress Kenny Dalglish in tonight’s Carling Cup tie against Brighton.
The 19-year-old Liverpool defender’s only appearance so far this season was in the last round at Exeter City.
“Hopefully the manager decides to play me again and I’ll look to take the chance that comes along,” he said.
“If you’re not getting a run of games and are only given one opportunity then you need to make sure you take it.
“Brighton have just come up from League One and are going well in the Championship. It will be a tricky game but we just need to focus on ourselves. If we apply ourselves in the right way we are a match for any team.”
Wilson, who cost £2million from Rangers in the summer of 2010, has been limited to just nine appearances for the Reds so far.
“I’m delighted to be here and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” he added.
“I feel like I’ve improved as a player but I haven’t played enough games. I haven’t got control over that.
“I can only try my hardest. The more games I get the happier I’ll be with my progress.
“It’s difficult for me with all these top players ahead of me but I wouldn’t have come here if I didn’t think I was up to the challenge. I’m only 19 and I’ve still got time on my side.”
