During the 2011-12 season, Liverpool played Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup Third Round and ran out 5-1 winners as they began a journey that would end in Cup Final defeat at Wembley.

The likes of Craig Bellamy and Andy Carroll netted on the day for Liverpool, as well as current regulars Stewart Downing, Steven Gerrard and Jonjo Shelvey.

Fast forward 13 months and the Reds are about to play the same opposition—this time in the FA Cup Fourth Round and this time away from home at Boundary Park.
