Ferguson: We're Back In It

Barry Reflects On Yeovil Defeat

Barry Ferguson says Blackpool are back involved in a fight to stay up following a 2-1 defeat to Yeovil Town at Bloomfield Road.

Despite a late reply from Elliot Grandin, goals from James Hayter and Tom Lawrence saw the visitors pick up a valuable three points and make things all the more tighter at the bottom.

"We knew the situation they were in and we were in and we could have probably put them out of sight by winning the game. Maybe it got to the players," Ferguson admitted.

"Football has always been about pressure. Wherever I've been, wherever I've played. Now I'm on the managerial side of it and the pressure is always on. I enjoy it and I need to try and work out a way of taking the pressure away from them. It does affect them.

"We're back it in again. We had a few wee spells of doing well, then back to the way we were before, do well and now this result has put us back again. We need to get a response now again. I need to work something out for the Derby game now. We need to get a result on Tuesday."

No qualms about the penalty given against his side, Ferguson didn't dress up Blackpool's display against The Glovers.

"The better team won. It's simple. It was just one of those days, they won all the balls and all the headers. I had a talk to them at half-time and got a bit of a response but it's a disappointing day.

"We had a few good chances and on another day they would have gone in. Elliot obviously had a great strike which was a wonder goal but all in all it's a hard one to take," he added.
