Ferguson: We'll Be Up For It

The Scot On Yeovil And Injuries

With improving results in recent weeks, Saturday’s clash with Yeovil Town provides another opportunity to chalk off three more points, as Barry Ferguson’s men look to give themselves breathing space at the bottom end of The Championship.

Yeovil, who sit bottom of pile currently, visit Bloomfield Road tomorrow desperate for the points, but Ferguson has called upon his players to focus only on themselves.

The Seasiders could potentially open up a 10-point gap between them and 22nd spot, but the Scot isn’t reading too much into their return upturn in results. 

“I’m not getting carried away, the last three or four weeks we’ve had some good results, but we’re far from safe,” said Ferguson. “We need to win on Saturday, I want to win every game and I’ll not be treating it any different to others.

“I know my team will be up for it, I don’t take notice of what other clubs say.  It’s about what we do on the day, I’m just bothered about what Blackpool do on Saturday at 3 o’clock and we’ll be going out to get three points.”

Meanwhile Ferguson revealed that he has no fresh injury concerns when selecting his side, meaning Kirk Broadfoot and Ricardo Fuller will again miss out.

“It’s just the same as last week, there are no injuries, everybody trained that is available. I’d be a lot happier if Ricardo was fit, but it’s a chance for someone else to step up to the mantle, it is up to whoever I pick to go and prove they should be playing up front.

“The schedule especially towards the end of the season is tough, and I can’t get the players any fitter than they are right now, they’re at peak fitness. I need to manage them in the right way, training hasn’t been as intense as it normally is because we have a number of games coming up.”

However one man who won’t face Yeovil is Kevin Foley, after the full-back returned to Wolves following the expiration of his loan deal.

“He came here and did a good job when I needed an extra body in defence because Tony (McMahon) was out. I had a long hard think about it and I think we have enough cover. He was doing a good job to be fair, but we move on and thank him for being here. 

“I have enough people who can move into that position, if anyone gets injured the young boy Harrison (McGahey) is ready to make the step any time.”
