Alex Kacaniklic insists his best is yet to come after a game-changing cameo against Burnley and has backed fellow Fulham loanee Marcello Trotta to score goals in the Championship.

Both players were on the bench for Saturday's game but Kacaniklic came on at half-time and played a big part in the Hornets turning the contest around.

Kacaniklic helped Watford retain possession, provided an outlet on the left wing and also scored the equaliser – his first professional goal. He followed this up with another good showing at West Ham United.

“To score my first goal, well what a feeling,” he said. “It was a great feeling to score in front of the fans and then we went on to win the game by turning it around after a good second half.”

Kacaniklic played a big part in the Hornets’ improved performance in the second half but he was quick to share the plaudits with his new team-mates.

He said: “I am in the side to try to help the team get going but the whole team played really well second half.”

Kacaniklic joined Liverpool as a 16-year-old but did not make a single appearance for the Premier League side before moving to Fulham in 2010 as part of the Paul Konchesky deal.

The Swedish winger was on the bench for Fulham in November but he had to wait until his first outing for Watford in January to make his professional debut.

He has made eight appearances since joining the club and is having an increasing impact.

Kacaniklic said: “It is not easy to just come and play in the Championship, it is different to what I am used to, but I am getting better game-by-game. I am getting more into it; the tempo and what I am required to do. I am going to keep going and there is more to come.

“I am happy to be here and hopefully I am here until the end of the season,” he continued. “I just want to keep playing games and win every game we can.”

Kacaniklic has been joined at Watford by his Fulham team-mate Trotta.

The striker failed to make an impact on his debut against Southampton and was an unused substitute in the last two games, but Kacaniklic has backed the Italian to come good.

He said: “We are good friends off the pitch and we play well together on the pitch. We have played well together at Fulham and hopefully we can now do it here.”

Trotta scored eight goals in eight games on loan at League One strugglers Wycombe Wanderers and Kacaniklic is adamant the youngster will score in the Championship.

“He is a goalscorer and he will score goals, I am telling you,” Kacaniklic stated.
