Steven Gerrard believes Liverpool supporters must be patient with Kenny Dalglish’s evolving side after the Reds endured a torrid March.

Liverpool have lost six of their last seven games, including a deflating 2-0 defeat by Newcastle United at St James’ Park last Sunday which left the Merseysiders languishing in eighth place.

The 31-year-old Reds captain, who was named the club’s Player of the Month for March, admits their league position is not good enough but insists the squad is targeting an improvement.

“There are a lot of challenges ahead this season. I’d ask the supporters to be patient; we will get it right,” Gerrard told Liverpool’s website.

“We have had a mixed March. We’re in a league position we’re not happy about and we need to look at ourselves and try to move up the league as soon as possible.”

Gerrard, who captained Liverpool to the Champions League title in 2005, brushed off praise for his performances over the past month, particularly his hat-trick in their victory over Everton in the Merseyside derby.

The England midfielder is targeting FA Cup success to compensate for the Reds’ poor league form, starting with victory over the Toffees in the semi-final on 14 April.

“It’s always nice to be rewarded for personal achievements, but from day one I have always said it’s about the team,” Gerrard added.

“It’s nice as a player to know you’re doing your job properly. Now I need to help the team to improve and become more consistent.

“The Everton game was obviously a highlight for me in March. It was a great team performance but besides that there weren’t many highlights.

“Let’s hope April has many more and that we can climb up the table and get to the FA Cup final.

“Although we have been inconsistent in the league we have shown we are a stronger squad and can beat anyone.”
