Clark: A Massive Step

6 February 2015

Manager Targets Back-To-Back Wins

Lee Clark says it would be a 'massive step' if Blackpool can make it consecutive victories with three points at Norwich City tomorrow.

The Seasiders, looking to end an away day hoodoo, are aiming to secure back-to-back wins for the first time since August 2013, and the importance could be crucial.  

"It'd be a massive step to get back-to-back wins and our first away win of the season against one of the top teams in the division," the manager said. "If we could do that, it'd peg back the teams ahead of us and bring them even closer to us. If we could move ahead of one of the teams above us positionally that would be psychologically huge.

"We've got to keep chipping away and take more points than the teams above us, and give everyone involved in the club that boost that we're still in there fighting. I think we're showing that."

Bouyed by ending a 10-month wait for back-to-back home wins last weekend, all focus switches to building on recent results at Bloomfield Road.
"We've got to start picking up more points away from home because our home form has been decent in the last few weeks," Clark continued. "We have to start getting a few more points on the road."

Norwich is an area the manager knows well, having spent time on the coaching staff at Norwich City under Glenn Roeder in 2007/08. 

"We had a fantastic time, it's a brilliant club. I enjoyed my 11 months there and the only reason I left was because I got the chance to become a manager, which was always my aim. I've got really fond memories but I'm going there for us to get a result and that elusive first away win of the season."

The manager will be without the services of Grant Hall again due to ankle ligament damage, while Alex Henshall has returned to parent club Ipswich Town with a knee problem. Joe Lewis hasn't travelled with the squad but could link-up separately if he recovers from illness in time.
