Jack Robinson says he's getting more confident with every game he plays, after picking up the Man of the Match award against Bolton last night.
The 20-year-old, who is currently on loan from Liverpool, has made nine appearances for The Seasiders so far this season and is enjoying his football.
"I think playing more games at this level gets you more confident. Playing every week is something I haven't done for a few years so for the manager to put me straight in the team week in, week out, all I can do is thank him and got out and play to the best of my ability," he said.
The left-back had his work cut out at times against Bolton, with his battle up against Liam Feeney one of the interesting tussles of the night.
"In the first-half he got the better of me a few times but then I got tight to him for the second-half and got the better of him. I was happy.
"It was a tough game, we found it hard in the first-half to try and make any chances. In the second-half we came out and played a lot better but we still couldn't find that chance to go ahead."
Fellow Liverpudlian Bobby Grant made his third start for the club in the game and Robinson was desperate to see him open up his goalscoring account in tangerine.
"He had a few chances and he was unlucky because he played well. I was rooting for him with every chance that he got to get a goal but it never came in the end. I'm sure if he plays on Saturday he'll get a goal," he added.
