Clarke On Facing Former Club

17 October 2014

Returning Defender To Face Terriers

Peter Clarke insists it will be business as usual when he returns to his former club Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The Blackpool defender is set to return from injury on the ground he spent the last five years of his career.

The 32-year-old has missed the last four Pool matches, but after his return to training he hopes to be walking out at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

“I had some great times there, but come 3pm that's all in the past. I'm going for three points with Blackpool,” he said.

“It would be lovely to get a nice reception, but that is all secondary to what happens between three and five on Saturday.

“I'm delighted to be at Blackpool and showing my worth here. I'll go there and give what I give in any other game. Hopefully that, coupled with the efforts of everybody else, will be enough to get us the three points.”

Clarke has been watching from the stands as Blackpool's form has continued to build, and hopes José Riga's side can benefit from their improved confidence.

“It's imperative that what happened against Cardiff doesn't go to waste. We want to go there, kick on and pick up points against a team not too far away from us.

“Progress has been made since the opening day at Nottingham Forest, things certainly took an upward turn after the international break and hopefully that will be the case again, more improvements and more points,” he said.
