Youth Team In Youth Alliance Cup ActionBlackpool Head of Coaching Richie Kyle is confident his side can return to winning ways against Accrington Stanley at Squires Gate in the Youth Alliance Cup tomorrow.
Kyle believes his side should take confidence from their recent 2-1 FA Youth Cup defeat against Birmingham, with Blackpool Youth unfortunate not to win the tie.
“We don’t have time to dwell on last Thursday because we have got another game. We are looking forward to getting back playing and hopefully getting over the disappointment,” he said.
“One thing we can take from Birmingham is a little bit of confidence because I thought we played well and in my opinion we did enough to win it against a big club.
“You have got to take some confidence and positives from it because we’ve competed at a very high level both individually and collectively as a team. We are hoping that Thursday’s performance is going to spur us on and give us some confidence in moving forward.”
With plenty still to play for, Kyle seemed optimistic about the remainder of the season for The Seasiders.
“The aim is to win as many games as possible. We want to get as high as we can in the league and as far as we can in the cup competitions.
“If we win more than we lose then we will be there or thereabouts at the top end of the league and we could go quite far in a cup competition, and that’s the sort of information I’ve been giving to the lads.”
Blackpool were triumphant over Accrington last time the teams came up against each other, and Kyle sees no reason why his side cannot be victorious again.
“I’m confident about every game, I’m always confident with the lads that we have. We want to win, Accrington will be tough and they are a physical team so we know what they bring to the table.
“At the same time they should be worried about us, we are quite confident going into the game tomorrow. We are going to be looking to get back to winning ways and we know we will give it our best to get a result,” he added.
