Goalkeeper Remaining Upbeat
Colin Doyle remains confident Blackpool can avoid relegation from League One and believes victory over Wigan Athletic would provide a timely boost.
The Seasiders remain two points from safety after Saturday’s stalemate at Fleetwood Town, with only two fixtures left to play.
Aware that a point didn’t massively help Pool’s cause, Doyle sees no reason why they can’t beat Wigan, who all but secured promotion over the weekend.
“It’s going to be difficult, we know that, but we beat them at their place so there’s no reason we can’t beat them at ours,” he said.
“The belief’s still there and at times on Saturday we played some good football. It was disappointing not to get the three points but we’ll keep fighting until the end.
“We’re still in it. We’ve got two games left so we’ll go out to win them and hope results go our way. We’ve got to keep positive, build on Fleetwood and get the win next week.”
Blackpool shaded proceedings at Highbury and had a goal ruled out for offside, which leads Doyle to believe they could have taken all three points.
“We set up to win the game and had the better chances. We matched them up, it took us ten or 15 minutes to get used to it, but when we did we played some decent football.
“The last 20 minutes of the first-half they were hanging in there, when we were attacking more. We put the ball in the back of the net but the referee said it was offside.
“We’ll push on and do our best for the club next week, and hopefully get the three points and see what the other results bring,” he added.
