Eardley: A Slow Start

13 August 2012

Defender Reacts To Morecambe Loss

Neal Eardley believes that The Seasiders paid the price for a slow start in their Capital One Cup defeat to Morecambe.

Conceding inside six minutes, the players found themselves on the back foot early on and only started to hit the gears after the interval.

“We wanted to win the game but it just wasn’t to be. It was our first competitive game but we conceded two poor goals from our point of view,” the right-back said.

“We had some decent chances, Matty hit the post and Incey had one saved but we should have started the game like we started the second-half. It might have been different if we had.”

All attentions now turn to a rigorous 46-game campaign in the npower Championship, with Eardley keen for the lads to hit the ground running at Millwall.

“That’s a big one because we obviously want to win that game and get off to a good start. We’ll take what we do in training this week down to Millwall and hopefully that’ll be good enough.

“All the lads are feeling fit and we’ll go down there full of confidence and looking for the right result. It’s a tough start but I think this league just gets tougher every year. Any game will be tough but we’ll be up for it and we’ll be fine if we start like we did in the second-half against Morecambe,” he added.
