Rodgers vows Liverpool will end Anfield agony


LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom (AFP) - Brendan Rodgers insists Liverpool will end their Anfield agony as long as the club's fans don't turn on the Reds boss and his struggling side.

Rodgers has yet to oversee a Premier League home win in four attempts since taking charge of Liverpool in the close-season and the Reds' barren run in front of their own supporters has now stretched to six matches in all competitions after Sunday's 0-0 draw with Stoke.

The hosts hit the woodwork three times, but Liverpool were unable to break down Stoke's stubborn defence and Rodgers' side remain in 14th place after just one win in their first seven league matches.

Liverpool, whose only home success under Rodgers came in the Europa League against Gomel of Belarus, are already eight points off the top four and more worryingly for their manager, they lie only three points above the relegation zone.
