McDonald To Move For New Goalkeeper

10 November 2015

Injuries Mount Up Between The Sticks

Neil McDonald will move for a new goalkeeper in the loan market following an injury sustained to Kyle Letheren at Wigan this evening.

Already without regular number one Colin Doyle due to an ankle injury, the manager is now set to be without Letheren for some weeks after the 27-year-old came off with a suspected broken collarbone at The DW Stadium. 

"It doesn't look good, it looks as though we're going to have to try and get a goalkeeper if we can. It's vitally important that we bring someone in," he said in the aftermath of a defeat in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

The game itself was one without clear cut opportunities for Blackpool, however the first hour of the performance was an improvement on Saturday's outing at Barnet.

"For 60 minutes we got a much better performance, we passed the ball better and contained Wigan, even though they had scored in the first-half. They never really over-ran us, but when the second goal went in they passed it with a little more vigour and made a few good changes to give them a bit more strength in the team. They punished us with the chances they they took. 

"We never really troubled Jussi Jaaskelainen apart from with one shot, and that's the most disappointing thing because we don't look a potent attack at the moment."

Attentions now turn back to the league, as the players look to build on some good results at home when Doncaster Rovers visit Bloomfield Road. 

"We're disappointed with the four games away from home and we've certainly conceded far too many. Our home form is very good, in our last five we've taken 11 points out of 15, and we've got to get back to that, and stop the opposition from playing," McDonald added.
