Liverpool's form started to look up as they had won away against Aston Villa. They played another away match against Wigan Athletic at the DW in a cold December night.
This game was the start of a nightmare for penalty takers for Liverpool. Charlie Adam missed from the spot five minutes after the second half started after Gary Caldwell was judged to have handled the ball.
Wigan's goalkeeper Al-Habsi stood firm against the barrage of shots that peppered his goal.
It was the same on the other end, where Pepe Reina made some fantastic saves.
Unfortunately for the Reds, the game ended level, adding some uncertainty (and perhaps foreshadowing) to the beginning of a run that all fans want to forget.
