Barry Can't Fault Effort Against BoltonBarry Ferguson couldn't hide his disappointment following a 1-0 defeat to Bolton Wanderers at The Reebok Stadium.
On a night when David Wheater's header separated the two sides, it was a lack of a cutting edge that denied The Seasiders from making the most of possession.
"I thought we should have won the game. We were the better team but we just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. One set piece let us down, that's all I can really complain about," Ferguson said.
"I thought the boys were different class. The effort and spirit I've never questioned but they showed tonight that they can play. They got the ball down and I thought we dominated the game."
Having grinded out home wins against Huddersfield and Millwall in recent weeks, The Seasiders played some pleasing football against Bolton, albeit without an end product.
"I just need to find a way of playing well and winning," Ferguson continued. "I know how to win ugly. I came with a gameplan tonight to dominate the game, and in terms of playing the ball about we did that. We created a number of chances, we just couldn't get the ball in the back of the net.
"The boys need to take a bit of confidence because they've obviously done that with the two results we've had previously at home. I thought we did well for 60 minutes at Leicester and tonight we dominated the full game. Anybody who was here would have seen that."
