Up The Pool Preview: Burnley

17 April 2014

Barkhuizen And Robinson Feature

Blackpool-born striker Tom Barkhuizen is on the cover of tomorrow’s edition of Up The Pool, as Burnley visit Bloomfield Road.

The youngster has returned to the fray in recent weeks following his injury, and speaks about his supporter tendencies and forcing his way into the side.

Barkhuizen said: “Obviously I got my injury but Fergie dropped me back in, which was pleasing. At QPR I thought I did quite well, but in all honesty I think I’ve found it difficult coming back in.

“Everyone is hurting, I’ve been in the dressing room after games, especially Yeovil, and everyone is so down. We’re all in the same situation and want to stay up.”

In addition we have an extended interview with Liverpool loanee Jack Robinson, who reveals the ups and downs of his first full season of regular football.

“We need to get the fans behind us so that we stop forcing things on the pitch. We’re forcing things too early and that backfires on us. We know what it takes, we just need to go out and do it now.

“Losing many games this season has been devastating but we need to go into this game against Burnley knowing that we’re going to get something out of it,” Robinson said.

Also inside is an interview with BBC Late Kick Off’s Tony Livesey, who is a Burnley fan, and he speaks of his affection for all the North West clubs, including Blackpool.

The Clarets perspective is provided by defender Michael Duff, where he refused to talk about promotion prematurely, but is delighted with how the season has panned out.

While we take a further look at the success story from Blackpool’s youth team, where a host of Blackpool personalities have heaped praise upon the youngsters.

Up The Pool, designed by O Publishing, is priced at £3 and is available to purchase now from the club shop and around Bloomfield Road tomorrow.
