McDonald: Raring To Go

4 September 2015

Manager Looks Ahead To Scunthorpe Fixture

Neil McDonald says nobody is feeling too sorry for themselves at Blackpool and his players are 'raring to go' for the game against Scunthorpe United this weekend.

The Seasiders head to Glanford Park in search of their first victory of the season, and a breakthrough on that front is crucial in an attempt to build up some forward momentum.

"If we can get points and good performances together then that will be great, If we can get three points then everybody's going to relax and we're going to see the best, but we need to do that as soon as we can," the manager said.

"We've played five games and we're disappointed with the start, especially after the way things went pre-season. Reality has hit home that we have to work a little bit harder in what we're doing. We've got a few people back from injury and we've recruited one just after the deadline, so that will add competition for places.  

"Everybody is raring to go and not feeling too sorry for themselves, we're raring and ready to go for Saturday."

Blackpool will look to continue an excellent record against Scunthorpe United, having won five of the last six meetings between the sides.

Scunthorpe currently sit on five points from the opening five games, with four of those points coming on home soil.

"They're quite strong and they've got some danger players so we have to be aware of them and make sure that we can strike if we can to try and get some points," McDonald added.
