Hughes: Benni is not on form


Hughes: Benni is not on form

Mark Hughes has defended Benni McCarthy despite his loss of form for Blackburn but is sure that he will come through and start scoring goals much like his strike partner Roque Santa Cruz has done; scoring 5 goals in two games.

"Benni has had a period where he hasn't scored goals and obviously there's a confidence thing there as well," said Hughes, whose side have now won just once in eight matches.



"Roque has come through it and I'm sure that Benni will as well because he’s a quality player. I have to go with the players that are showing confidence in their play and have ability to affect games and at the moment Benni is finding it a little bit difficult in that respect." Hughes told AFP.
