Howard warns Everton: Brentford can smell blood

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has warned teammates Carling Cup opponents Brentford can "smell blood".

American goalkeeper Howard is fully aware there remains no easy way out of Everton's current predicament but is targeting tonight's Carling Cup third round tie at Brentford as an ideal chance to right the wrongs of Saturday's loss.

"We need to pick ourselves up, but we don't have long because we go to Brentford on Tuesday night," said Howard.

"We need to get a result, get ourselves back in the hat then get a week of training into us and hopefully capitalise next weekend. There are no easy answers, you just have to keep digging yourself out because nobody will give you anything, in fact they'll do quite the opposite and smell blood.
