Defoe can Spur Eng­land strik­ers


Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY MARCH 8 -

WEST HAM de­fender Geor ge Mccart­ney has told his teammates not to r uin the week by flop­ping at home to Wat­ford.

The Ham­mers won at Car diff last week and take on strug­gling Don­caster at the week­end.

And the Nor th­ern Ir eland in­ter­na­tional made it clear nine points was the tar­get.

He said: “When it’s a thr eegame week, we al­ways seem to beat the tough­est op­po­si­tion and strug­gle against a lesser team.

“Take our gr eat win against Black­pool we then str ug­gled at home to Cr ys­tal Palace, a team that at home we should beat.”

Wat­ford will look to striker Troy Deeney to carry on his hot form.

The 23-year-old has net­ted three in his last five games af­ter just five be­fore that.

Boss Sean Dy­che said: “His record sug­gests he hasn’t scored as freely as what we’d hoped or what he’d hoped but now he’s cor­rect­ing that.”
