Clark: Keep Fighting and Scrapping

16 January 2015

Manager Calls For More Of The Same

Lee Clark says Blackpool's battling qualities will need to keep coming to the fore if The Seasiders are to secure Championship survival.

Every point between now and the end of the season is crucial, with the manager looking for the same determination that resulted in victories over Birmingham City and Millwall.

"As I said after the Millwall win, my players have to keep fighting and scrapping and giving us everything for every minute of every game," he said. "Don't give up on anything no matter what the state of the game is, try and continue to pick up points because that's what we've got to do. We've got to see if we can keep closing the gap on the teams above us."

Now three points off Wigan Athletic and eight points from safety, Blackpool head to Wolves this weekend in search of their first away win this season.

"They're a good side, I've seen them a few times this season and they've been very impressive in how they go about their business.

"It's a great place to go and play, it's a terrific stadium with a great atmosphere. These are the games that you want to be involved in. We've had some decent away performances but never always got what we deserved. We've just got to go there with a good game plan.

"Winning games gives you a bit of confidence but we've got to make sure that we don't get over confident. If we can do that, then we'll be fine," he added.

Islam Feruz could make his debut for Blackpool following a loan move from Chelsea, while Darren O'Dea has recovered from the ankle injury he sustained against Millwall. Gary MacKenzie and José Miguel Cubero will step up their comebacks in a behind-closed-doors fixture against Leeds United on Tuesday.
