CRAIG Cathcart thinks someone could soon be on the end of a hammering from Blackpool.

The defender is convinced the Seasiders are playing well enough but are lacking a bit of luck in front of goal.

And the Northern Ireland international hopes it all falls into place against Gianfranco Zola’s Watford at Bloomfield Road today.

Cathcart said: “I think we could end up beating someone well if we can get that first goal.

“It could have been the case at Bristol City last Saturday. We had enough chances in that game to maybe win four or five. We’ve done it before and I don’t see why we can’t again.”

Blackpool have gone five games without a win at home, something Cathcart says has to change.

“We go into every game looking to win, especially the home games,” he added.

“Hopefully we can start with a win tomorrow and that can kick us on. The most important thing for us is getting the first goal.

“If we can score first in games, teams will have to come out at us and we’ll be able to pick them off.”

Cathcart is fit, though has endured a stop-start campaign so far.

He’s played the past four games after recovering from a calf injury and hopes to stay fit for the rest of the season.

“I had a few injury problems earlier on in the season and it broke my stride a little bit,” he admitted.

“But I really feel I’m getting stronger now. It was a good performance last week – we dominated the game.

“We showed our fighting spirit and I think if we can get the first goal in the games coming up teams will find us very hard to beat.”
