McDonald: Build On Excellent Home Form

12 February 2016

Manager Previews Shrewsbury Town Fixture

Neil McDonald has praised Blackpool's home form as 'excellent' and hopes to see it continue when Shrewsbury Town visit tomorrow.

The Seasiders have lost just two games at Bloomfield Road since September and have kept eight clean sheets at the stadium in that time.

This weekend provides an opportunity to put further distance between Blackpool and the bottom four sides in the division, with the manager determined to move up the division.

"Winning our home games has been important because away from home we certainly can improve. Our home form has been excellent and if we can put more points on the board then that means the gap is getting bigger and bigger and we'll start looking up," he said.

"Since the first three games of the season I think we're up there with the best for home form. We seem to be keeping clean sheets at home and scoring a few goals as well, so we must continue that."

The visitors head to the Fylde Coast for the second time inside a week after picking up a point at Fleetwood Town on Sunday. The manager was in attendance for the game and knows what to expect, however Blackpool are a much improved side since defeat at Greenhous Meadow in September.   

"They're a very hard team to break down, as Fleetwood found on the day. They've got a couple of threats which we need to take care of and we've got something to prove because we're an improving team since the last time we played, he added.
