McDonald Pleased With Solid Display

Manager Reflects On Point at Coventry

Neil McDonald was delighted with Blackpool’s performance at Coventry City and felt the players deserved more than a point.

A solid display in all departments frustrated the opposition, while some great work on the counter attack led to plenty of opportunities. 

“We should have won the game,” the manager told the official website. “We’ve had, in my opinion, six really good chances and kept them to a minimum. I know they’ve had lots of the ball, which is what you’d expect from a top six team at their own place, but they never really troubled us that much.

“Defensively we were really solid, really good and working for each other, and then we created them chances and should have won the game. We’re disappointed with a point.”

Despite being a tad disappointed not to take all three points, McDonald was pleased to see the result extend Blackpool’s unbeaten run in all competitions to four games. 

“The boys have got the bit between their teeth. We’re still a young team, we’re still learning and still trying to work hard for each other. That should give everybody, especially the starting eleven and the ones that are pushing, real confidence to come to a place like this and keep them to a bare minimum of chances.

“The players are getting to know each other now. We’ve stuck to the formation and the personnel and they’re getting their just rewards.

“Points give you confidence and performances encourage you to do better. We’re getting both at the moment, which is great,” he added.

The Seasiders will now look to carry the momentum into two home fixtures this week, starting with Millwall on Tuesday night.
