Hall On Timely International Break

27 March 2015

Defender Discusses Free Weekend

Grant Hall believes the international break will allow Blackpool to recharge their batteries ahead of the Championship run-in.

The Seasiders played five games in 21 days during March, but are now amidst a fortnight without a match due to the international weekend.

With a busy schedule ahead for April, the defender feels the free weekend has arrived at an ideal time. 

“The break will do us the world of good,” said Hall. “It's not just physically tiring, but also mentally when you're struggling in the league.

“It will be good to recharge the batteries, not only for the players but staff too, and we'll be fresh again for Bolton.”

Lee Clark's men did at least enter the break on a positive note, having impressed in Saturday's draw with Leeds United.

Hall was moved to right back due to injuries for the clash, but it was far from a foreign role for the Tottenham loanee. 

“I played at right-back when I was younger, so it wasn't new to me. I enjoyed playing there and I'm happy to do it for the team.

“In the first half I thought we were on top. We went in ahead which was fair and we could have scored a couple more the way we were playing. 

“Second half was a bit different because they put us under a bit of pressure, but it was a pleasing performance,” he added.
