McDonald: Got To Be Clinical

27 March 2016

Manager Looking For Blackpool To Take Chances At Doncaster

Neil McDonald says Blackpool must be clinical and take advantage of any Doncaster nerves when the two sides meet tomorrow.

The Seasiders currently hold a two point advantage over Darren Ferguson's side and sit one point above the line in the battle to retain League One status.

Given that there will be more pressure on the home team, who are without a win in 13 league matches, the challenge will be to exploit any uncertainty.  

"The win against Crewe gives us a lot of confidence away from home, we have improved our away from by picking up points here and there. We have to capitalise on Doncaster's nerves at home and take advantage of that as much as we possibly can," the manager insisted.

The point picked up against Bury on Friday is one that has left mixed emotions, however a big result at the Keepmoat Stadium would put Blackpool in a stronger position.  

"Every point that we get is a point gained, we're just disappointed that we took the lead and we couldn't hold on against Bury. 

"We've taken four points out of six from pressure games so we're two undefeated and we must go on a bit of a run. We'll be full of beans going to Doncaster and will work to a game-plan to try and get the points.

"We've got to put in a performance like we did against Crewe, counter-attacking and creating lots of chances. We've certainly got to be clinical."

Jack Redshaw will look to return the squad for the game after serving a one-match suspension, while David Ferguson could come into contention after recovering from injury. Brad Potts, who was replaced at half-time against Bury due to illness, hopes to recover in time for the trip.
