Clark: Points On The Road

20 February 2015

Manager Looks To Fix Away Form

Lee Clark says Blackpool's away form must change immediately with three of the team's next four fixtures coming away from Bloomfield Road.

Having watched his side pick up seven points from 12 at home, all focus turns to transferring some of that form to performances on the road.

"It's crucial now with three of our next four away from home that we arrest this issue away from home," the manager said. "We've got to get a win from somewhere and start picking up points on the road."

The Seasiders go in search of three points at Blackburn Rovers this weekend without a couple of players due to injury. It means the team and tactics may be shuffled around to suit.

"Our hands are tied a little bit with the lack of numbers so we've got to look at that as well and see what the best team is to give us a chance of getting three points at an extremely tough place.

"Blackburn are playing with a lot of confidence, in their last home game they put a Premier League side to the sword in terrific fashion. They also got a good point away at Cardiff in midweek."

The challenge for Blackpool remains the same, with the players determined to cut the gap and secure Championship safety. Although games are running out, the manager has seen enough fight to highlight that the battle is still on.   

"The players showed me on Saturday that they haven't given in, they've still got the fight. They kept going when we were down a few players and 4-3 down to get the equaliser and a terrific point.

"We've got to keep believing and keep fighting, if you're not prepared to fight then don't get on the bus to Blackburn," he added.
