McDonald: Capitalise On Crewe Result

24 March 2016

Manager Looks Ahead To Bury Fixture

Neil McDonald says Blackpool must capitalise on their result at Crewe last weekend and pick up another three points against Bury tomorrow.

The victory at Gresty Road lifted the club back above the line in League One and the games over the Easter weekend represent a chance to pull further away.

"We've got a great chance to go and put that bit of breathing space by winning another game at home against Bury," the manager said. "We're feeling good about ourselves after a fantastic and well deserved win against Crewe and we have to capitalise on that as much as we possibly can."

The game against Bury earlier this season was a frustrating one for The Seasiders, as the team scored three goals yet still came away empty handed. 

"We need to do a lot better than we did at Gigg Lane and continue to put the ball in the back of the net, like we did last week. We created lots of chances against Crewe and we must continue that as well."

One of Blackpool's goalscorers that day, Jack Redshaw, will be suspended for the match, however David Ferguson and Lloyd Jones are back in contention.

"David is close to coming back, he's trained over the last few days," McDonald confirmed. "Lloyd had a little bit of a twisted ankle last week but he's been training OK so we've got a healthy squad to choose from."

Another player who has been welcomed into the squad is striker Jacob Blyth, who joined the club on loan from Leicester City earlier this week. 

"He's a big target man with good inter-link play and he couldn't wait to come here. I've watched him on a few occasions for Leicester's under-21s and he's always done well and impressed me. Hopefully he can impress us in the short time that he's here."
