Their impressive first-half showing at Valley Parade on Saturday gives Colin Daniel belief that this new Blackpool side can enjoy a good season back in League One.
The 29-year-old, playing wing-back, netted Pool’s first goal of the season in an opening period where Pool were on top, providing plenty of positives.
With six players making their debuts at Valley Parade, Daniel insists it will take time, but the early signs are good.
“We played well first-half so if we can take that into the next couple of games we’ll do well,” he said.
“We’ve brought in some good players but it’s going to take us time, the first few games will give us time to gel and when we do we’ll be alright.
“Bradford got to the Play-Off Final, it’s a big club, so to come here and play like we did in the first-half is a credit to us.”
Daniel netted four times for Blackpool last season and is already off the mark, which will delight his manager, Gary Bowyer.
“The Gaffer had been on to us all pre-season that when you do pass it, make another movement off the ball, I played the one-two with ‘Cully’ and put it in.
“’Cully’ and ‘Vass’ are both good strikers who work hard and score goals. With them two up top I think we’ll be alright this season,” he added.
