Bowyer: No Let Up

16 December 2016

Manager Stresses Need To Push On

Gary Bowyer says Blackpool must continue to improve and push on in Sky Bet League Two this season. 

The manager has watched his side reach the play-off positions in the division and score 35 goals in the process, yet more will be required with 26 games still to go. 

A free week on the training ground has provided the perfect opportunity to hammer home key messages and develop aspects of play. 

"It's been really beneficial, we've managed to get on the grass and do some needed work in my opinion," Bowyer said. "The players have worked extremely hard this week on ways in which we can improve because we can't afford to take the foot off the pedal, we've got to keep it firmly on there and push on. 

"We've got to look at different ways in which we can improve and get better. The better teams always look to do that and I don't see any reason why we should be any different."

Aside from league action, The Seasiders also remain in two cup competitions and performances in those have highlighted the strength of the squad and the players competing to start on a regular basis.   

"It's something that every day we see in training from them and they've just got to be patient, they've got to keep pushing and working hard and letting me know that they're ready to step in. I have no problems whatsoever if we need to make any changes."

Blackpool host Luton Town at Bloomfield Road tomorrow and it's a game the whole squad is relishing ahead of a busy fixture schedule getting underway.   

"It's always a busy period, it's a good period and it's an exciting period for us. I think by the end of that period you'll certainly know where you stand a little bit more in terms of where you're heading. 

"We're coming up against a Luton team that are up there in the play-off positions, but it's exactly the type of game that we want. It's all about us again, what we do and what we allow Luton to do and not to do. 

"We've only had one defeat in 11 and only one defeat all season here at home. We're going into the game full of confidence and backing our ability because we know that we've got goals in the team," the manager added.
