Striker Leaving Friendships To One Side
Nathan Delfouneso will head back to Turf Moor for the first time tomorrow evening since his loan spell with Burnley at the end of the 2010-2011.
The 21-year-old scored twice in eleven league games for The Clarets after joining on-loan from Aston Villa in March 2011.
He’s still got a few friends from his short time in East Lancashire but expects all friendships to be left to one side once the referee blows the whistle.
“I’ve had some memories there so it will be nice to go back and see some old friends, so I’m looking forward to it.
“Obviously I won’t be friends with them on the pitch as I’m looking to come away with three points and hopefully it will be a good day for me and more importantly for Blackpool.”
Delfouneso recently returned from international duty and thankfully returned with a full bill of health.
“I’m fully fit, raring to go and looking forward to the derby,” said the striker.
“It’s big for the fans and big for the players as well and we’re all looking forward to it and looking to come away with the three points."
Despite three defeats in the last four games Delfouneso is not concerned with the way games have been going and is upbeat over the ability within the squad.
“Every game is important. We’ve had a few disappointments but we’re still feeling good and confident within ourselves and still looking to kick on, push forward and have a good season.
“We’re looking to get back on track, starting on Saturday and get some consistency and some good results going and get some points on the board,” added the loanee.
