Eardley: Let's Put Things Right

12 October 2012

Defender Aiming To Get Back To Winning Ways

Neal Eardley is not prepared to let any memories of last weekend's defeat by Charlton Athletic linger in his mind over the international break.

Instead the 23-year-old is looking forward to the upcoming games, where he is hoping that the Seasiders can rediscover their early season form, which saw them gain 13 points in the opening six matches.

Eardley admits the team was extremely disappointed after the match, but says it's now time to look forward.

"I think we were fancied to win, but in the end we didn't get the result we were after.

"We're not going to dwell on it. We'll just look forward to the next game now.

"I know it's going to be a long wait and so do all the lads and the rest of the staff, but we'll keep focussed and look forward to that and try and put things right."

Despite looking to move on, their is a belief that the Seasiders can learn a lot from the way in which teams have frustrated Ian Holloway's side in recent games.

"Obviously teams are watching us now and making it really hard for us to break them down so it's going to be difficult," said Eardley.

"Teams are going to do their homework on us and they know what we can do, so it's going to be hard to play against sides now with them looking at us."

The next team that will be doing their 'homework' on Blackpool is Burnley and the full-back is hoping for a better performance at Turf Moor this season, compared to last.

"It wasn't a great result for us last year, so we will be looking to put things right.

"They're going to be a decent side, especially at home, so we know what we're up against and we'll work on what we think is best for us in that game.

"If we do what we do as well as we can, I don't think we are going to have too many problems," added Eardley.
