Robertson: League One To Suit Blackpool

11 August 2017

Clark Robertson believes the nature of League One will suit Blackpool’s style in the long term this season.

The Seasiders have held their own, despite falling to defeats, in their opening two games of the season against Bradford City and Wigan Athletic.
Robertson, who is now in his third season with the club, likes to play out from the back himself and thinks the sytle of this division is ideal.
“There’s more football played which suits our team,” he said. “League Two is more physical, but the footballers we have in this squad will suit the league going forward.
“We don’t want to come up and just make up the numbers, we want to have a right good go in every game and try to get as high up in the table as possible.
“I think we’ve got a better squad this time around, we maybe weren’t prepared for League One last time around, and those lads will be more prepared now with two seasons under their belts.”
The Seasiders won 39 points at Bloomfield Road matches last season and Robertson is looking to spark another strong return when they take on MK Dons this weekend.
“We did have a decent home record last season and we’ll be looking to carry that into this season, starting on Saturday against MK Dons.
“Knowing what Robbie Neilson is like from up at Hearts, they play good football, similar to how we want to play, which should make for a good game,” he added.
