Baggies boss plays down Liverpool significance Roy Hodgson insists he’s focused purely on points when the Baggies face Liverpool tomorrow (KO 3pm). The Hawthorns clash is the first time Hodgson will face his former employers following his dismissal from the Anfield hot-seat in January. But the ever professional Hodgson says his thoughts are firmly on gaining valuable points against the Reds and not on revenge. "It's another game - but it means a lot because we only have eight games left and every game means a lot," said the 63-year-old.  "I don't have any feelings of revenge or proving anything. "I don't think I need to prove points. "If there are people out there who think I need to prove a point then I suggest they look at what I've done in 36 years. "I'm more concerned with having that behind me than having debates about six months at a club. "For me, it's six months in a 36-year career - and I don't have any worries about that. "I live in the present and the future. "What happened at Liverpool is in the past. "It happened. "The people that are there know the work I did and the satisfaction I'll get, if any, is that the people that were there are fully respectful of the job I did, and realise that it was circumstances more than any lack of competence which prompted the owners to change the manager."
