Gary Bowyer says no stone has been left unturned this week, as Blackpool aim to halt a disappointing run of results.
The manager has held extra training sessions on the grass and re-emphasised to the players what is required to be successful in this division.
“We’ve turned things around, we’ve done something and had an afternoon session with all of them. There’s been no day off this week because we’re working very hard to try and get a result on Saturday,” Bowyer said.
The Seasiders travel to Charlton for their final match pre-Christmas and will once again be without the services of Mark Cullen and Kyle Vassell. Solutions will be found in front of goal, though.
“We’ve got to make sure that we come up with solutions, and at this moment in time the solutions are within the camp. We’ve got to make sure that we work hard with them to do that.
“I know Karl Robinson well, so I know how his teams play and perform. They’re at home and in the play-offs, so they’ll be coming and having a go at us. It’s up to us to stand up to that and have a go back.”
The Addicks are the only team Blackpool are yet to face this season as we reach the halfway point in the campaign. The assessment as the 23rd league fixture looms is one of general frustration, which can be rectified moving forward.
“If you had to pick one word, it’d be frustration. It would be frustration with our league position at the moment, frustration with some of the opportunities that we’d had and not taken, and frustration with the injuries.
“But all that frustration provides us with a massive opportunity for the second half of the season. We know that we’re capable of performing in this league, and we’ve proved that,” the manager added.
