Fuller: Every game is tough

1 November 2013

The forward expects a stern test at the City Ground this weekend

Ricardo Fuller says Blackpool must take each game as it comes and remain level headed following an impressive start to the season.

 The Jamaican striker, who turned 34 yesterday, says The Seasiders must remain grounded, despite lying fourth in the table on the back of a six-match unbeaten run.

 “We have got a good team spirit and good bunch of lads here. Since I’ve been at the club we’ve only lost once so it’s been great of course, but there is a long way to go in the season," said Fuller.

 The experienced frontman has settled in well at Bloomfield Road since his summer move from Charlton, becoming an instant fans favourite, but he hasn’t set himself any specific targets for the rest of the season.

 "I've never ever set myself targets for any team I've played for in the past. I always take each game as it comes and try to play to the best of my ability.

 "As long as the team wins I don't mind if I am scoring or creating goals. At the end of the day all that matters is that we win the game."

 Next up is a trip to promotion-chasing Nottingham Forest, a game Fuller believes will be as tough as any other in this division.

 "This is a very competitive league and every game is going to be hard whether you're playing a team in the top six or the bottom six. Everyone wants to get three points no matter who you're playing."

 Fuller believes the team’s form in the absence of manager Paul Ince underlines the togetherness within the squad.

 "I think it's testament to the team that we're doing so well when our manager isn't on the touchline.

 “No matter who is there, we always give 100 per cent. We stay focused and act professional at all times,” he added.
