Midfielder On EFL Cup Challege
Michael Cain believes Blackpool will benefit from the experience of facing Premier League opposition on Tuesday, despite going down 2-0 at Crystal Palace.
The Seasiders faced a Palace side packed with international players and didn’t disgrace themselves, conceding just a goal in each half.
Cain played the full 90 minutes in South London and feels the knowledge gained will be helpful for the entire Blackpool team.
“It was a good test for the lads to see where we’re at. Obviously they’re a good outfit, they moved the ball well so we had to defend well.
“The whole back four were top drawer. You learn from your mistakes and move on but it showed us where we’re at.
“We conceded at the wrong times. We dusted ourselves down and tried to contain them, minimised their opportunities as much as we could and tried to be a threat in the other half.”
The Leicester City loanee has turned out four times for The Seasiders so far and feels he is improving with each game he plays.
“I’m trying to adapt to the system that we play. I feel with the minutes I’ve played I’ve done alright but hopefully I can keep progressing and get in the starting team.
“The manager said he likes my flexibility, I’m adaptable and like to play different positions,” he added.
