Todd: We Want A Good Cup Run

Blackpool Coach On First Round Tie

3 November 2017

Andy Todd says Blackpool will be going all out to have another good run in the Emirates FA Cup this season.

The Seasiders, who reached the fourth round of the competition last season, face National League side Boreham Wood at Meadow Park tomorrow. 

"Last season was a decent run, we came up against a Championship club and did really well, and it’s a competition we want to do well in," said Todd. 

"Winning games is a good habit and it gives us confidence for the league. We want to have a good cup run." 

Nothing will be taken for granted, however, as Blackpool's opponents will relish the underdog status, given that two tiers stand between the clubs. 

"They’re a good team, they’re strong, they’re physical and they’re seven unbeaten and playing at home. We’ve going to have to roll our sleeves up and battle and be resilient. It’s all about what we do," Todd enthused.

"It’s all about application, attitude and being professional, and that’s what it’ll be on Saturday. We’re going to have to earn the right to play. The main aim is to get in the next round of the cup."

Injury and suspension rules out a number of players for the fixture, yet certain individual performances against Middlesbrough's Under-21s in midweek have been noted. 

"A few of them did themselves the world of good and will be knocking on the door for Saturday," The Seasiders' first-team coach confirmed.
