Clarke: Time To Make Amends

23 December 2014

Defender Looking Ahead

Peter Clarke says Blackpool must ensure that Saturday's heavy defeat to Bournemouth is simply a blip.

Pool's four-match unbeaten run was shattered by The Cherries, but now Clarke wants a response over the Christmas period.

With ample opportunity to get back on track during two games in the next week, the defender says the supporters can expect a reaction.

“We'll make sure we've done all the work we need to make sure that is a one off. Then hopefully we can go on a run, picking up a good amount of points over the coming months,” said Clarke.

“After going behind we didn't react in the same way we have done in previous weeks and the scoreline was embarrassing in the end.

“It's something we've started to put right at the beginning of the week and we'll work through until the next game at Sheffield Wednesday.”

Understandably it was a disappointed dressing room on Saturday evening, and Clarke wants Blackpool to use that feeling to their advantage in the future.

“It has to be something of the past, make sure it is a one off and perhaps use it as a motivation that we can now kick-on.

“On Saturday we were bitterly disappointed and frustrated. We let the fans and everyone involved with the club down, so we have to make sure we learn from it,” he said.
