Delfouneso: We Deserved More

1 September 2014

Striker Feels A Win Is Coming

Nathan Delfouneso feels its small margins which are keeping Blackpool from a first victory of the season.

The Seasiders were again luckless on Saturday, as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Millwall.

It was a sixth defeat from six for José Riga’s men, but Delfouneso feels they deserved a point at least at The Den.

“I felt we had some very good chances, and probably should have gone into half-time ahead based on the chances that we had,” said Delfouneso.

“It always seems to be around that same sort of time we end up conceding a goal. It’s disappointing, but a few boys had a good effect when they came on and we need to start the game like that.”

In the first half Delfouneso set up Ishmael Miller for what appeared to be the opening goal, only for it to be ruled out for a foul.

“I felt I barely touched him and then he just stopped, he got the decision we didn’t. It’s a little bit of the luck that we’re not getting at the minute.”

Riga now has two weeks to work with his side before the next league match against Wolves, and Delfouneso is confident they’ll come good.

“We’re getting there, I know it doesn’t look good on the table, but within the team we feel we can do something. We’ve just got to get it together from the first minute to the end.

“Everyone believes in what the manager is doing and I believe in what the manager is doing. I have confidence in myself and the team that we can turn this around,” said Delfouneso.
