Broadfoot On Christmas Run In

11 December 2013

The defender looks ahead to the pre-Christmas fixtures

The Christmas period is fast approaching and with it comes plenty of matches, which for a footballer will take discipline and preparation.

One of the few positives about Kirk Broadfoot's recent suspension is that the defender will be well rested ahead of a host of festive games, starting on Saturday with QPR.

The visit of The Rs is followed by a trip to league leaders Burnley; a pair of pre-Christmas matches which will certainly test Blackpool's squad.

"The teams we've got coming up will be very difficult, but we're looking forward to it.

"We're coming up against clubs with bigger budgets. Most of QPR's squad has played in the Premier League, so we know it is going to be tough, but we're at home and have a decent record there.

"I'd rather play games than train, so I look forward to Christmas, but everyone knows it is a difficult period because there isn't much time between games."

The defender missed Saturday's trip to Derby through suspension, following a couple of bookings at Yeovil, and admits he should have known better.

"I got overly frustrated in the Yeovil game, but you learn from your mistakes and I won't be doing that again.

"I think Gary's sending off was a bit harsh, we're getting no luck at the moment, but hopefully that will turn soon," said Broadfoot.
