Watford defender Craig Cathcart reflects on their 2-1 away win at Crystal Palace after he scored on both ends of the pitch on Saturday.
Cathcart was unfortunate to be on the end of Abdoulaye Doucouré’s attempted clearance which ricocheted off him and went into the net.
The Northern Irishman equaled the most own goals scored in the Premier League this season, on par with Wesley Hoedt of Southampton.
He went from zero to hero in the 67th minute when he nodded in the equalizer from a corner kick sent in by Jose Holebas.
Tom Cleverley then came off the bench and scored in the 74th minute to give the visitors a 2-1 victory at Selhurst Park.
“It was my first brace! So I’m happy with that…” Cathcart jokingly told the club’s website.
“Obviously, it’s nice after scoring an O.G. to get the equalizing goal. Then we had the momentum going forward.
“The second goal from Tom was a great finish, and we pretty much controlled the game after that.”
