Bowyer: Need To See The Job Through

24 September 2016

Manager On Draw At Crewe

Gary Bowyer says Blackpool must learn to see the job through after a Ryan Lowe leveller at Crewe left the team settling for a point. 

The Seasiders took the lead against The Railwaymen early on but didn't capitalise on numerous first-half opportunities, leaving themselves open to an equaliser which duly came in the 70th minute.  

Speaking after the 1-1 draw, here's what he had to say.  

Reflecting on the point. 

We get ourselves into a good position first-half and we've just got to make sure that we see the job through. We're still giving goals away, soft goals, and that was the disappointing bit. To come here and take a point away from home with a fantastic following again - the supporters were terrific - we're happy enough because I think out of all the games that's our worst performance. 

Needing to take first-half chances. 

This is what we've got to find a remedy for very quickly. We've just had some harsh words in the dressing room some would say, but it's just a bit of passion. They've got to know how serious we are. 

Second goal vital. 

We said at half-time to go and get the next goal. We didn't feel that we played to the potential that we've shown in the previous games to be honest. 

Injury to Sam Slocombe and introduction of Dean Lyness. 

That was disappointing but Dean came in and, bar picking the ball out of the net, I don't think he had a great deal to do - he made one save in the second-half. He proved last season that he's more than capable and that's why we've brought him back to the club.
