GEELONG struggled early but showed more composure in front of goal to defeat Carlton by two goals at Docklands on Friday night.

The game was tight for most of the night before the Cats kicked clear in the final quarter to win 14.13 (97) to 11.19 (85).

The loss was Carlton's fourth in five matches but it could have been so different for the Blues, who missed a string of chances and hit the woodwork on no less than five occasions.

Geelong's Steve Johnson told Grandstand that the team had struggled but had kept faith in its ability to finish with a win.

"We haven't started games too well (this year)," Johnson said.

"But when you come in at half-time and you're not far behind, and the way we've been able to finish off games so far this year, we had a lot of confidence we could win."
