Ferguson: No Points Target

28 March 2014

Barry Taking it Game-by-Game

Barry Ferguson says no points target is in place for Blackpool,as he looks for the team to pick up as many wins as possible between now and the end of the season.

Currently nine points clear of the relegation zone, Ferguson is keen for The Seasiders to end the campaign strongly and finish as high up the table as possible.

"I just want to try and win every game, I'm not looking at a points tally or whatever," he said at his pre-match briefing. "We need to win as many games as we can and try and get further up the league and have a half-decent finish to the season."

A visit to Queens Park Rangers awaits this weekend, as well as a different tactical approach from the one against Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night.

"We'll go there with a game plan which will be different from the way I wanted the team to play at Bolton because Bolton is a big, wide open pitch. We'll try and do something different and hopefully come out with three points. 

"They're a quality team, I'm not going to lie. They've got big game players and I wouldn't mind having the budget they've got. We'll go and we'll try and get three points."

Bouyed by recent form, Blackpool now look ready to bounce back from disappointing moments in games following a tough period mentally in previous months. 

"That was the biggest, pleasing thing for me apart from the performance on Tuesday," Ferguson said. "We showed character, and that's what I want to see here. In games before they've let their heads go down, which is understandable because it's been a tough season. Hopefully they're away from that and if we do concede a goal first then we're going to keep coming and coming at teams. That's what I want to see, and that's what the boys did."

New signing Apostolos Vellios goes straight into the squad for this weekend's fixture, although Kirk Broadfoot and Ricardo Fuller miss out due to injury.
