Striker On Millwall Trip
Danny Philliskirk has called on Blackpool to build on Tuesday’s draw at Chesterfield and go one better at The Den this weekend.
The Seasiders impressed against The Spireites and were unlucky to claim the solitary point, after hitting the woodwork three times.
Facing a tough test against Millwall on Saturday, the striker believes the same level of performance should wield three points.
“We want to go to Millwall on Saturday, give a good account of ourselves like we did on Tuesday and hopefully get the three points,” he said.
“There’ll be times this season when people write us off and we end up picking points up so we’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves.
“We’ve got 12 cup finals, if we can win half or more we should be OK.”
Philliskirk has bagged four goals since his arrival from Oldham Athletic, but was as frustrated as anyone to watch his team mates denied by the post in midweek.
“If we keep getting in the right areas it’s got to change, it can’t keep going that way. Tuesday we were a bit unfortunate, especially first-half, when we hit the woodwork three times.
“We can’t be too disappointed, hopefully if we keep getting into the right areas and keep getting shots on target a few of them will start to go in.”
Philliskirk played behind Uche Ikpeazu at The Proact Stadium, alongside Jack Redshaw, in a system which he feels brought out the best in him.
“We played more like a 4-3-3 formation, me and Jack tucked in more in possession behind Uche. It complemented me and Jack more because we like ball to feet and to get at people,” he added.
