Clean Sheet Pleases Cathcart

23 February 2013

Defender On Leicester City Point

Craig Cathcart was pleased with a defensive clean sheet, as The Seasiders had to grind out a draw against Leicester City.

The Northern Ireland international hopes that the solid showing at the back is something that the team can now build on going forward.  

"It was our first clean sheet in seven games so as a defender they're the sort of things you look forward to getting," he said. "Hopefully we can carry them on from here."

His partnership with Kirk Broadfoot has been a big plus point and the 24-year-old is pleased with how things are working out. 

"I think we've got a bit of a decent partnership going me and Kirk and we look a lot more solid. The new manager wants us to build on that and have a good shape defensively, as well having our attacking prowess."

The Seasiders trialed a slightly different formation for the game and Cathcart believes that it worked well considering the surface at Bloomfield Road. The plan now is to get back to training on Monday and work on new things under the manager.         

"We just have to grind out results because it's going to be a battle at home from here on until the end of the season. It suited us a bit more at home because we need to be a bit more direct on that pitch. 

"We haven't worked on too much with having two games this week but from Monday onwards we'll listen to what the manager wants from us and build on this result. Monday will be the start of a good solid week for us," he added.
