Fuller Raring To Go Again

17 September 2013

Forward Hoping To Continue Form

Ricardo Fuller's header in Saturday's 2-1 win at Bournemouth was the striker's first goal for The Seasiders since joining in the summer and he is certainly hoping he won't have to wait long for the next with the games coming thick and fast.

Blackpool head to Millwall this evening having had a couple of days training and rest on the Fylde Coast and the 33-year-old admits it's always nice to get off and running for the season.

"I'm pleased," Fuller told the Official Website.

"I'm very much happy because it's good to have that first goal; it sets you up to hopefully go on and get some more as I try to every game.

"I try to do the best I can whether it's for the team or for myself because at the end of the day it's a team sport, but scoring a goal as a striker is always important for your confidence and that could lead me onto bigger and better things and there is much more to come hopefully."

The Jamaican has played the last three games for Blackpool now, being substituted in two, and believes it won't be too long before he is up to peak fitness.

"We trained yesterday morning. Sunday, I was a bit sore and a bit stiff because obviously that's another 70 minutes I think, with ten men and I was on my own as well. That's my third game of the season without being properly fit so my fitness is obviously definitely getting a lot better.

"Yesterday morning went well in training so hopefully I will be raring to go again tonight, but that's the way it goes with Saturday-Tuesday, you've just got to live with it as that's what I do so we've just got to get on with it."

Millwall may well be bottom of the league, but that thought isn't even entering the heads of the Pool players ahead of tonight's game as The Seasiders hope to maintain their impressive start to the season.

"Every game is tough, it's just one of those games where you know that it doesn't matter if they got beat 5-0 in their last game or won 2-0 in their last game as every game in The Championship is tough, so it's just another game for us.

"We've just got to keep going and do the best we can and try to take our chances and that's what victory is about in every game of the season," added Fuller.
