Bowyer: Not Good Enough

25 February 2017

Manager Demands Better After 2-2 Draw

Gary Bowyer couldn't hide his anger after Blackpool let slip a two-goal lead for the second game in succession to draw 2-2. 

Strikes from Colin Daniel and Brad Potts had put The Seasiders in a commanding position against Exeter City, yet goals in first and second-half stoppage time allowed the home side to fight back for a point. 

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

Goals conceded in both periods of added time prove costly. 

As a result of that I’m not very happy at all with them. The manner of the two goals is just not good enough from some of them. You can’t be saying concentration with a minute to go until half-time and a minute to go before the end of the game, that’s when the concentration has got to be at its most. 

Onus on players. 

The players that are on the pitch are the ones who make the decisions and as a result we haven’t been able to see out a two-goal lead for the second week running. 

Disappointment for travelling fans.

It’s majorly disappointing because once again we were backed by an unbelievable turn out. It’s very disappointing that we’ve not sent them back on the long journey that it is with an away win. 

Winning mentality required.

We will see now the reaction from the players on Tuesday. We’ve now got to produce winners, they’ve got to be winners and that comes from within. If they don’t want to then they won’t play.
