Bowyer Pleased With Quick Turnaround

Gaffer's Thoughts On Barnet Trip

Gary Bowyer is pleased Blackpool have an instant opportunity to move on from Saturday’s defeat with a positive result at Barnet on Tuesday night. 

The Seasiders were much the better side against Morecambe but finished empty handed, leaving Bowyer to regroup his players ahead of a trip to the capital.

“We’re delighted we’ve got the opportunity to get going again straight away because the performance levels were decent, but we want more,” said Bowyer.

“We played some really good stuff in the first-half but it’s massively important we move on quickly from the disappointment that was Saturday.”

Barnet are likely to provide a different, more physical test to Bowyer’s side and the manager says The Seasiders must be able to face different styles of play. 

“They’re going to have to be ready, not just for Tuesday night but for the whole season. We’re aware of the fact we’ll face different styles of play throughout the campaign and you’ve got to be able to adapt and compete. 

“We’ve got to be able to cope with the demands of that style of play but Barnet aren’t all about that, they’ve got some good players in their squad as well.”

Bowyer opted to employ Michael Cain in the role behind Kyle Vassell at the Globe Arena, which he felt worked to good effect. 

“He did ever so well on Saturday, he provided us with a different option. He has that flexibility and we’re hoping, moving forward we can look to play him in that area.

“He’s got good set piece delivery too which is one of the reasons we brought him in,” he added.
