MARK Schwarzer has warned Fulham they are in for a tough afternoon against Blackpool on Sunday, in a fixture he describes as “huge”.

The Australia keeper – a mate of the Seasiders’ David Carney – knows maximum points are needed with the Cottagers just three points above the drop zone.

Schwarzer said: “It’s a huge game but Blackpool have shown on their away trips that they are a very difficult team to play against. The have done tremendously well this season and we know we’re in for a very tough afternoon But we believe we should be picking up three points, especially at home. It is imperative we get results at home and nick some away.”

*POOL Reserves take on Wolves at Bloomfield Road tomorrow, kick-off 7pm.

*CRAIG Cathcart is on international duty for Northern Ireland tonight as they take on Slovenia in a Euro 2012 qualifier at Belfast’s Windsor Park.

The Pool centre-half made his international debut in the reverse fixture last September, which his side won 1-0.
