Reds must stick together - Riera

Albert Riera
Riera has missed most of Liverpool's recent slump

Liverpool winger Albert Riera is urging his team-mates not to panic as they go into the international break on a low.

The Reds have won one game in nine, and Riera suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury in the latest setback - Monday's 2-2 draw with Birmingham.

"It is true that we are in a difficult moment," the Spain international told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"We have plenty of time and need to be calm. We have two weeks without a game and have to be stronger after that."

Riera is facing another three or four weeks on the sidelines after the Blues draw, which was his first game in over a month.
