Bowyer: Consistent Results With Performances

28 October 2016

Manager Looks Ahead To Cheltenham Game

Gary Bowyer says Blackpool must match performances with results on a consistent basis following victory over Doncaster Rovers last weekend.  

Certain displays have gone without reward so far, however three points at Cheltenham Town tomorrow would secure back-to-back wins for the first time this season and allow the team to build momentum.   

"It's about us now finding that form on a consistent basis and not only producing the performances that we have been doing, but the results as well to go along with them," the manager said.

"I expect it to be tough against Cheltenham on Saturday, and I don't think you can have any reflection on the game we had here (in the Checkatrade Trophy) because it was two completely different teams. 

"They've had a good run of games at the moment and not just a good run of games, a good run of wins as well. We'll be in for a tough challenge but it's one we're looking forward to and we're ready to go and give it a good go."

The victory against Doncaster last time out was the first time The Seasiders had come from behind to win a game since March 2013, which highlights the character developing in the current squad.  

"It's something that we've had to address in terms of the mentality after two seasons of relegation," Bowyer admitted. "That stat in itself was quite alarming but we have to build on that now. There's lots of positives from the performance and the result on Saturday." 

Just eight points separate 19 of the 24 teams in Sky Bet League Two at this moment in time, emphasising the difference a couple of wins can make.    
 
"If we'd have managed to hold out at Accrington we'd be sat in a play-off position, which is crazy when you consider that it's only one game. I don't think the league table will settle down until Christmas, gone Christmas. We've just got to make sure that we keep picking up points now," the manager added.
