Ferguson: Quick Turnaround

11 March 2014

Thoughts ahead of tonight's game...

Having a game three days after Saturday is an ideal situation for Barry Ferguson and his Blackpool side, as the hunt for a win goes on.

The Seasiders host Millwall hoping to put right a series of disappointing results, the most recent of which came against Bournemouth at the weekend.

Ferguson has dusted himself down and is now devising a plan to beat Millwall, who currently sit one place above the relegation zone.

“I would have preferred a game on Sunday morning, it’s not going to happen, but we need a response on this pitch,” said Ferguson.

“Before we’ve been lucky, but the teams below aren’t far away from us. We better get a grip and realise where we are. 

“It’s been going on far too long, we need to get a response at some stage, I can’t keep saying the same things week in week out. 

“We have a perfect scenario with a game three days after the defeat against Bournemouth, so that’s the best thing that can happen.”

This evening the Scot will welcome back Ian Holloway to Bloomfield Road, the manager who brought Ferguson to Blackpool in 2011.

“He did a great job, obviously taking Blackpool to the Premier League, what an achievement that was. He did a fantastic job, so I’m sure he’ll get a good reception.”

However Ferguson will be focusing on Blackpool, after another frustrating few days.

“I watched the game back a number of times. I’ve played in bad games, where things haven’t went for me, but the one thing you need to keep  doing is working hard and not let it affect you. 

“We have to keep fighting, don’t give up, I’m not going to give up, so I expect them to do the same.”
