Kyle: Right A Few Wrongs

30 January 2015

Youth Look To Get Back On Track

Richie Kyle is hoping his Blackpool Youth side can 'right a few wrongs' this weekend when they travel to Wrexham.

The Seasiders are without a win in 2015 and Kyle admitted it's been a frustrating period for him and his players, but felt they haven't always got what they deserved.

"We're confident of ending this barren run, it's important to get that win as soon as possible," he said.

"We've dusted ourselves down after last week, the lads have worked hard in training as ever and will be raring to go on Saturday. It was a tough pill to swallow last weekend but we've drilled it into the players that they can't keeping making these silly mistakes.

"I always say it but on our day we can give anyone a game, we haven't always got the points we deserved this season, but that's the reality of football; sometimes you have to make your own luck in this game.

"It's a different season to last, we had a more experienced side and we kept them together for the majority, we had a winning mentality in the camp and that's why we ended the season as champions. We need to get that back."

Having settled for 1-1 with Wrexham earlier in the season, Kyle says his side will not be taking them lightly.

"They'll be hard to beat," he said. "They came to Squires earlier in the season and played well. We conceded a sloppy last minute goal which hurt, because we'd done enough to win that game comfortably. We know it'll be difficult, their coach is very experienced and will have them well drilled. Our quality in the final third will have to be better than it was last week.

"We'll have a young side out again, with a couple of injuries and selection problems, but I have full belief that the team I put out on the day will be more than capable of picking up the three points," he added.
