More Of The Same For McDonald

16 October 2015

Manager On Coventry Trip

It’s a case of more of the same, according to Neil McDonald, as Blackpool go in search of a fourth consecutive victory at Coventry City this weekend. 

The Seasiders travel to the Ricoh Arena with their tails up after victories over Chesterfield, Swindon Town and Port Vale, and are looking continue that run against the League One high-flyers.

“We’ve got a little bit of form, a little bit of consistency and we’ll have to try and keep that going as much as we can,” said McDonald. 

“Every game seems to be a yardstick at the moment. We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves and what our strengths are, and try to exploit the weaknesses of the opposition, which we’ve done in the last three games.”

Coventry away does however represent one of the toughest tests Pool are likely to face this season, with The Sky Blues currently sitting pretty in a play-off spot.

Tony Mowbray’s men have won seven of their 11 league games this season, but McDonald has done his research and is relishing the challenge.

“They’re a very good footballing team. In the league they’re in the top six, and we haven’t taken anything from a top six team yet, but we’re full of confidence and we’re really looking forward to the game at a big stadium. 

“Over the last three games our attacking play has been very good, we’ve been creating chances, we’ve been very tight and work for each other when we haven’t got the ball, which gives you a chance of winning games,” he added.
