Hughes worried over McCarthy form
South Africa and Blackburn striker Benni McCarthy
Blackburn's Benni McCarthy has struggled to score goals recently
Blackburn manager Mark Hughes believes that Benni McCarthy is struggling with a lack of confidence but has backed him to re-discover his form.

McCarthy has not scored since the end of October, after grabbing 18 goals last season.

"Benni has had a period where he hasn't scored goals and there's a confidence thing there as well," he said.

"Roque [Santa Cruz] has come through it and I'm sure that Benni will as well because he's a quality player."

Hughes added: "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."

"There are other players in the team who are struggling with form as well, which is a concern."
