Mellor: Can't Dwell On It

3 January 2017

Defender Moving On Quickly

Kelvin Mellor insists Blackpool must move on quickly from Monday’s home defeat to Mansfield Town.

The Seasiders had taken four points from six since Christmas but suffered defeat in their first fixture of 2017.

With two cup ties on the horizon, there’s no time for Blackpool to feel sorry for themselves, says Mellor.

“It’s gone now, obviously you’re frustrated but you’ve got to move on and be positive,” he said.

“We can’t dwell on a loss, we want to be pushing up the table and it’s not going to happen if we don’t have a good vibes around the place.

“We've not been bad at home and we have the FA Cup to look forward to on Saturday.”

Mellor had Pool’s best chance when his header was cleared off the line at Bloomfield Road, summing up a frustrating afternoon.

“I think we deserved something, especially second-half. We pushed them back and thought a goal was going to come. 

“It was a tough day. A bit of tiredness crept in and we lacked the last bit of quality in the final third,” he added.
