Broadfoot: We'll Just Get On With It

30 August 2013

Defender Shrugs Off Injury Problems

Kirk Broadfoot believes that Blackpool's current injury problems could give other players the chance to shine, just like last weekend. 

The Seasiders are set to be without the likes of Craig Cathcart, Gary MacKenzie and Steven Davies for tomorrow's game against Watford, which could lead to players switching positions.

However, Broadfoot says that the team will just get on with things regardless and look for someone else to step up and make an impression.  

"It's just one of those things, we just need to get on with it," he said. "We've got to look at the other side of it - it gives other boys a chance, as you saw last week when Tom came in and got the goal."

Blackpool go into this game unbeaten in their first four, resulting in 10 points from a possible 12. The start to the campaign is something that hasn't necessarily surprised. 

"I'm not surprised by the start we've made, considering we ended the season by not conceding many goals. 

"We're shaping up and working against how the other team plays and how we'd play against them. I think we've just added more as a unit and looked to nullify the other team more than last year, and I think it's working."

The visiting Hornets are also without defeat so far and are likely to provide a big attacking threat, with Broadfoot set to start the game at centre-back. 

"They play some nice stuff at times, you saw that last season. I watched them last week on the TV and they don't seem to be any different. If anything, they are probably stronger this year. I'm sure they'll have plenty of the ball but hopefully we can limit their chances," he added.
