Doyle Relishing Challenge Away From Home

1 March 2016

Goalkeeper Previews Chesterfield Trip

Preparing for their first of five away games this month, goalkeeper Colin Doyle knows improved form on the road could prove the difference come May.

The Seasiders are without an away win since December but travel to Chesterfield knowing three points could move them level with The Spireites in League One.

Above the relegation zone on goal difference alone, Doyle is seeing the glut of upcoming games as the perfect opportunity to move clear of danger. 

“We’ve got a lot of games this month and a lot of them are away from home so it’s going to be difficult, but the lads are relishing the challenge,” he explained.

“We’ll be trying to get back-to-back wins which we need to start doing. Every game you go into you want to win and that’s certainly our plan of action.

“There was a good buzz around the place on Monday morning so hopefully we can do well on Tuesday and pick up some points.”

Going in search of their second double of the season, after beating Chesterfield back in September, Doyle has highlighted the importance of keeping possession at the Proact Stadium.

“We beat them 2-0 at our place but it’s going to be tough. They got a good result away at Gillingham on Saturday and will be confident.

“Hopefully we’ll get it down and pass it and be able to keep the ball. That was the one thing we probably didn’t do on Saturday, every time we did win the ball we didn’t keep it for long enough. 

“Hopefully on Tuesday night we’ll try to retain the ball a bit better and play from there,” he added.
