Manager Looking To End The Campaign On A High

Paul Ince is refusing to say the season is over just yet despite The Seasiders securing safety last Saturday and is intent on finishing the season with consecutive victories; something the side hasn’t achieved since August.

Bolton Wanderers lie in sixth spot and are in need of the victory to cement their place in the play-offs.

"It's not all over because we have another game at Bolton, which is very important for us. One thing we still haven't achieved is back-to-back wins and we've got a very good chance of doing that on Saturday, so don't think we can all get in holiday mode and take it easy on Saturday. 

"We owe it not just to ourselves but to the teams who are trying to get in the play-offs, to put on a show and try and win the game.

"It will definitely be a good game. It will be a good pitch, there will be no pressure on us as far as having anything to achieve, other than those back-to-back wins.”

Like Blackpool, Bolton have had managerial changes this season and Ince has been impressed with the job Dougie Freedman has done since he took over last October.

"They've done very well and Dougie Freedman has done a fantastic job since he's been there, but it's not about them because we don't want to go there and just be part of a circus or a celebration for Bolton getting in the play-offs; that's the last thing I want my side to do.

"We will have a few thousand fans and we owe it to them to put on a show. 

“We need to re-focus and get ourselves back to where we were last week against a tough Derby side and we got the win last week and we want to finish the season on a win and take that into next season.”
