McMahon: It's About Results

19 September 2014

Skipper Looks To Get Season Up and Running

Tony McMahon is determined to help Blackpool get their season fully up and running this weekend, with The Seasiders in search of their first three points of the season.

Although there have been positive spells in games to date, the skipper is quick to admit that results are the most important factor in the club's attempts to move up the Championship table.

"I think we're close (to that first win). Hopefully it's against Brighton this weekend," he said. "It's been difficult, we have been in every game we've played - in spells we have done really well - but it's about getting results. We know of late that results haven't been great so we need to start getting points on the board."

The solitary point so far came last Saturday against Wolves, which the team came within a post of building on against Watford on Tuesday night. 

"We're just looking forward to the next game because we need to bounce back from the disappointment of Tuesday night. It was another defeat which was hard to take because I thought we did really well in the game. Obviously it was my mistake that gave away the penalty so, for me, I just can't wait for Brighton now."

Having played catch-up on the fitness front, the 28-year-old believes that the players should now be up to the demands of The Championship.

"We are fit enough as a team. We've played enough games now so we should be fit enough and we should be at a level that we can play three games in a week because that's what's required."

Blackpool's last visit to Brighton came in April, although McMahon is one of only two players to have featured in tangerine that day.

"I think there's me and Perks from that game. We went down there in a similar situation because we hadn't won for a long time and we needed to get a result. Dobbs scored a great goal and got us a point so hopefully we can go down there and go one better by getting three points," he added.
