Daniel: Unlucky Not To Take Something

Reaction To Southend Loss

2 October 2017

Colin Daniel says Blackpool were unlucky not take something from Saturday’s match against Southend United following their second-half performance.

The Seasiders threw everything at the opposition after finding themselves two goals down and were denied a point by a penalty save from Mark Oxley.

“The way we performed in the second-half, I think we matched them, put balls in the box and caused them a lot of problems. The keeper has pulled off some good saves from a couple of set-pieces and we were unlucky not to take something from the game,” he said.

The result meant that Blackpool ended the month of September with 11 points from seven games and though disappointed not to increase that tally, overall performances have been promising.

“It’s been a good September. We’ve been a bit unlucky in a couple of the games. If we keep performing and keep working hard, on and off the pitch, then we’ll be alright this season.”

Due to the home game against Blackburn Rovers now being rescheduled, the team must wait until 14 October for another league fixture. The break will be utilised well, though.

“It’s a long time to stew but it’s also a long time to get on the training field and work on the things that we need to improve on,” Daniel added.
