Philliskirk: Go One Better At Doncaster

26 March 2016

Striker's Mixed Emotions After Bury Draw

Danny Philliskirk says Blackpool must see their Good Friday return as a point gained, going into a massive fixture with relegation rivals Doncaster Rovers on Monday.

The striker’s penalty had Pool on course for three points against Bury, but the visitors responded instantly to leave Philliskirk with mixed emotions come full-time.

With the focus firmly looking ahead, the striker knows how important three points at the Keepmoat Stadium would be.

“We’ve got another game on Monday so hopefully we can go there and get three points, we’re both down there so it’s a massive game,” he explained.

“We believe in each other, we had a sticky spell before the Crewe game but came through that, we didn’t play great football against Bury but got a point out the game.

“We’ve got the day off on Saturday so it’s feet up, Sunday we’ll train and travel and it’s one of the biggest games of our season on Monday so I’m sure the lads will be up for it.”

Philliskirk’s strike against The Shakers was his 12th of the season, and while frustrated it was only enough for a point, he was taking the positives afterwards. 

“Small little details have cost us again so the boys are frustrated but at the same time it’s a point, that’s four from two games, and hopefully we can get three on Monday.

“A point’s better than nothing at the end of the day. We need to be winning games, but we didn’t particularly play very well so you can look at that as a point gained.

“From a personal point of view it was good to get my 12th goal of the season and hopefully I can get a few more before the end of the season to help the club out of the position it is in,” he explained.
