O'Dea: It's Hard To Take

18 April 2015

Defender After Fulham Loss

Darren O'Dea admitted he wishes it was December again, after Blackpool's improved performance against Fulham went to waste. 

With relegation confirmed the pressure is off, and with just two games remaining O'Dea wishes time was still on Pool's side.

Their recent showings at home have been impressive, and the defender felt Pool warranted more for their efforts against The Cottagers on Saturday.

“It's hard to take,” he said. “I think the last five games, barring Derby, we've done the right things.

“It's obviously too late to do anything in the league, but they are good signs for next year.

“If you do what we've done across the course of the season you'll pick up points, but we've been unlucky today."

O'Dea has started the last six matches and is finally at full fitness with the season almost over.

“About three or four weeks ago something changed, partly players were getting fitter, which sounds terrible at this stage of the season.

“It's terrible to be talking about fitness in April, but I've felt stronger with each game. 

“I've felt fitter as the season has gone on and would love it to be the halfway mark, rather than the end,” he added.
