Bowyer: Still In Our Hands

29 April 2017

Manager Reflects On Defeat At Notts County

Gary Bowyer emphasised the fact that Blackpool's destiny is still in their own hands following a 1-0 defeat at Notts County. 

The Seasiders will go into the final match of the season against Leyton Orient knowing that victory will secure a play-off position, with the manager looking for a response to a disappointing afternoon at Meadow Lane. 

Speaking post-match, here's what he had to say...

Little work for the goalkeeper. 

I don't think any goalie had any real work to do and that's the disappointing thing from our point of view with the ball. We huffed and puffed but gave away a silly goal. 

Counter attacks early on not capitalised on. 

Our football was excellent, we created some great openings but it was just the decision making in the final third and the final pass. To get in those positions, the football was terrific. 

Brad Potts brought down on a first-half burst forward. 

It's clear, he's knocked it past him and he's gone one side and gone to go on the other side and the lad's twisted twice. It's a foul and neither the referee or linesman see it, which is disappointing.

Overall disappointment. 

There wasn't much in the game but we just spoke about finding a way to get that one goal. We didn't do enough of that today and that was the disappointing thing from us. 

Knocks for Taylor and Robertson. 

There's a few of them, Vass as well and Bright got one, but overall they should be OK. 

Still in a play-off position with one game to go. 

That's the position you want to be in and what we've got to do is learn from today's game and put it right during the week in training and go again next Saturday.
