Ferguson: We Kept Pushing On

21 October 2015

Skipper On Millwall Draw

Blackpool captain David Ferguson was left with mixed emotions after The Seasiders extended their unbeaten run to five matches with a 1-1 draw against Millwall.

Jack Redshaw saved a point with an 83rd minute penalty, but after the visitors were reduced to ten men Ferguson felt Pool could have nicked the full haul. 

“Looking at our performance from start to finish I’ll take a point,” said Ferguson. “Jack scored a hell of a penalty and I think we could have gone on to win it.

“We didn’t start as well as we had in the last two home games, but we improved second-half and in the end, the way the game went, we should have gone to take all three points. 

“We kept pushing on, the Gaffer made some changes and I think they worked, they were fresh legs so I always thought the goal was coming.”

The point keeps Blackpool ticking over and leaves them undefeated in five matches, but Ferguson has already set his sights on Saturday and going one better against Crewe Alexandra.

“Going into the game with Millwall we thought to ourselves we need to be winning to get back up the table.

“I know we moved up one place but now we’re looking at Crewe and need to win that one, which is the mentality we’ll go into it with. 

“However, if you’re picking up points there’s other teams that won’t be. In the end you will creep up the table and they’ll add up at the end of the season,” he added.
