Emile Heskey and Michael Owen were both on the scoresheet in a 2-0 victory, in a good work-out for Gerard Houllier's men.
Former Leicester City striker Heskey converted a cross from Nick Barmby after 41 minutes before Owen wrapped up the win, late in the second half, after Patrik Berger had been denied at the far post.
Meanwhile, Blackburn have confirmed planetfootball.com's story regarding Blackburn Rovers' determination to sign defender Djimi Traore.
"We've been talking to Liverpool about Traore but that's all I can say at the moment," stated Blackburn chief executive John Williams.
The Frenchman may be allowed to leave for Ewood Park if the price is right, even though Houllier has always affirmed his intention to hang onto the reserve team player.
