Lyness Looking To Take Chance

17 November 2015

Goalkeeper On Blackpool Move

Dean Lyness believes a full week on the training field will work to his advantage, after making his Blackpool debut at the weekend.

The goalkeeper was between the sticks for Saturday’s defeat to Doncaster Rovers but showed his strengths with a number of impressive saves. 

Now ready to knuckle down, Lyness is keen to rid the memory of his debut defeat and string a run of impressive performances together. 

“Obviously two goals against isn’t ideal but we’ll work on that during the week,” he said. “I’ll get to know the lads better this week and we’ll see how we go. 

“From a personal point of view I’m disappointed with the two goals so that’s something for me to take on the chin and work on.

“Being a goalkeeper you’re in and out, in and out, so when you get an opportunity you take it and hopefully there will be a chance for me to do that at Blackpool.”

The 24-year-old has been patient for his chance, after finding himself out of the early-season reckoning at Burton Albion, so is now ready to grasp his chance at Bloomfield Road.

“It’s my job at the end of the day to make them saves when required and try to keep the ball out of the net. That’s something that comes with match practise and the more you play, the easier it is to make decisions.

“As soon as the opportunity came up I didn’t really hesitate, that’s how quickly football can change – now I can familiarise myself with the place and go from there,” he added.
