  • The full-time whistle goes and Liverpool bow out of the FA Cup in dramatic style following a thrilling 3-2 loss to Oldham at Boundary Park. The crowd go berserk as they celebrate a stunning victory.

  • Sturridge attempts to take a long ball coming in over his shoulder as Byrne nervously tries to stay with him, but he cannot control it.

  • Oldham edge ever closer to a famous victory as Liverpool's passing continues to prove frustratingly wayward.

  • It is nothing but hopeful shots from distance at the moment, as Sturridge drags one horribly wide from outside the area.

  • Six minutes of stoppage time have been signalled as Liverpool continue to launch long balls forward in an effort to salvage a leveller.

  • Gerrard comes within a whisker of equalising as his 25-yard piledriver beats the despairing dive of Bouzanis but comes crashing back off the crossbar.

  • Robinson takes up a menacing position but perhaps just shows his inexperience as he decides to shoot rather than cross and slices his effort badly wide.

  • Allen wriggles away from Taylor and goes for goal, but his shot is again blocked and loops agonisingly behind for another corner.

  • Oldham continue to resist as Gerrard's shot from the edge of the box is deflected over the bar by the impressive Byrne.

  • Mellor comes on to replace the injured Smith for the closing stages.

  • The physios come on to administer treatment to Smith, who is in obvious pain, and he has to be stretchered from the field.

  • Smith has not ducked out of an aerial challenge all afternoon but his latest act of physical commitment comes at a cost as he bangs awkwardly into a team-mate and goes down clutching his shoulder.

  • GOAL! Liverpool grab a lifeline as the ball comes out to Allen 20 yards from goal and he unleashes a volley which takes a wicked deflection off Baxter and ends up in the bottom corner.

  • That miss will be Simpson's last act of the match as he makes way for Taylor.

  • Simpson has the opportunity to surely put the tie beyond Liverpool as he is set free by Smith's flick-on, but he opts to shoot first time when he could perhaps have brought the ball under control and drags it well wide.

  • Shelvey lets fly with an ambitious effort from 30 yards which is powerfully struck but flies over the crossbar.

  • Liverpool will feel that if they can get one goal back they will be able to snatch an equaliser, but Oldham look organised at the back and are fighting for their lives.

  • Liverpool make their third and final change as Shelvey comes on for Sterling.

  • Coates dwells on the ball for too long in the Liverpool defence and Smith is in quickly to try and steal it. However, referee Probert deems that the Oldham player is a tad too aggressive in his endeavours and issues a yellow card.

  • Oldham relieve the pressure temporarily and Baxter tries his luck from distance, but his fizzing low shot skids just wide.
