Cathcart: “We Are 100% Ready To Go”

By Kevin Affleck

Craig Cathcart has underlined the resolve in the squad to put on the type of performance at Goodison Park that is more reflective of a side coached by Javi Gracia.

The Hornets were, for whatever reason, not at the races against Brighton last weekend and were given a rude awakening. The debrief took place earlier in the week and the sole focus has been on Everton for a few days now. The coaching staff and players are acutely aware for the need to take a shot at redemption in the blue half of Merseyside on Saturday.

“We can't worry about it [what happened against Brighton) too much,” said Cathcart. “We've got to move on as we have a difficult game this weekend. We've got to pick ourselves up and look forward to the next games. We are not feeling any pressure – apart from the pressure we put on ourselves. We were not up to scratch at the weekend and we've got to put on a performance and get a positive result. That's the focus: to play our game and put on a good performance.”

The 30-year-old Northern Ireland international has looked over the footage of the game against Brighton and wasn't happy with what he saw defensively. He now feels the time is right for a long overdue shut-out of the opposition.

“As a defender, I was disappointed with the goals we conceded,” he said. “One was an own goal but the other two were a bit soft, so we've been working hard in training. We've tried to work on stuff as Everton have some attacking threats and we need to nullify them. As a team we want to defend better and we want to keep a clean sheet.”

The team had experienced a few tricky results in the build-up to the last game at Goodison Park, but the familiar sound of Z-Cars, the various subplots around this fixture and a decent game-plan combined to inspire them to a dynamic performance that almost resulted in victory.

“We've been working on tactics to go up there and get another positive result, like we did last year,” said Cathcart. “It will be a really difficult match, as they are always one of the top clubs in the country. They've made a lot of good signings but so have we. It's going to be a tough game but we are aiming to up our performance and get a positive result. We know last week was a wake-up call and that if we don't perform at our best, it's going to be really difficult. Everyone will be on their game and we are 100 per cent ready to go.”
