Minute's silence this weekend to mark Hillsborough disaster

7:36 am on 11 April 2012

A minute's silence to mark the 23rd anniversary of the Hillsborough football disaster will be held before this weekend's FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.

Liverpool play Everton and Tottenham Hotspur face Chelsea in the FA Cup semis, and players from all four teams will wear black armbands in memory of the 96 Liverpool fans who died on April 15, 1989 at the semi-final at Hillsborough in Sheffield, when Liverpool met Nottingham Forest.

Liverpool are playing Everton this weekend, a day before the actual anniversary.
