Clark: Work To Be Done

12 December 2014

Seasiders Look To Build On Victory

Manager Lee Clark says Blackpool must continue picking up points on a regular basis, as the players look to build on last weekend's victory.

The Seasiders are now unbeaten in their last three fixtures and will look to close the gap at the bottom again when they head to Charlton Athletic tomorrow.  

"It's only one win and we've got a lot of work to do in the coming weeks," he said. "When you do win it does make it a better weekend and gives the players a bit more confidence.

"But we need to be picking up points on a regular basis. If you can get on a run of games where you're winning consistently it builds confidence and reduces the gap that we've got between ourselves and the team fourth bottom. That's what we're looking to do."

Clark set his side a five-game points target following the international break, with an assessment to follow once the outcome of the next two fixtures is known.

"We've got two games left in that block of games. We set specific targets for the players during that block of games and when we get to five o'clock after the Bournemouth game we'll know where we are in terms of those targets we're trying to set ourselves.  

"Our current unbeaten run is good, it breeds confidence and momentum. We've got to keep reproducing performances and results and keep working extremely hard. We've still got areas we can improve on," he added.

The manager opted to take the team to London yesterday to maximise preparation time, with the players training at West Ham this morning. Squad options remain the same for the game, with Jacob Mellis, José Miguel Cubero, Tom Barkhuizen and Gary MacKenzie still sidelined.
