Evatt: We Can Only Take Positives

27 October 2012

Defender At A Loss As To How The Seasiders Only Got A Point

Ian Evatt was bitterly disappointed to only get a draw against Brighton and feels the side did more than enough to walk away with all three points.

Despite dominating for long periods Gus Poyet's men took the lead only for Elliot Grandin to grab the equaliser, before The Seagulls withstood more Blackpool pressure to eventually hold out for a draw.

The defender is now hoping Blackpool can turn the performances into wins in the coming weeks.

"It's disappointing but we can only take positives from the performance. 

"It's the best we have played for four or five weeks now and we if we go on playing like that for the rest of the season we will only get good results."

Evatt was one of many players who saw chances come and go and hopes it won't be long before The Seasiders start finding the net on a regular basis again soon.

"We missed so many chances, myself included, and it just wouldn't go in for us but that's the way it's going for us at the minute.

"They are a very good side but for 90 minutes today we've just dominated the game and how they've come away with a draw I will never know."

It is now four games without a win but Evatt says confidence is beginning to come back into the side after some hard work on the training ground.

"I think we've been angry with ourselves more than anything. We haven't performed the last few weeks. For whatever reason we've got nervy and a loss of confidence. 

"This week the gaffer has reminded of us of just how good we are. He's showed us clips of what a good team we can be on our day and today we've come out firing.

"Against Forest we played well but today we were even better and for 90 minutes we dominated the game and I'm not sure how we've not won," added Evatt.
