Gary Bowyer says his side will face a real test against Scunthorpe United tomorrow, and it’s one he’s thoroughly looking forward to.
The Iron, who reached the Sky Bet League One play-offs last season, have made an unbeaten start to the league campaign and currently sit three places above Blackpool in the table.
While full of praise for the job his counterpart Graham Alexander has done at Glanford Park, Bowyer is excited to see how his players go about taking on the opposition.
“It’s a real test and I’m really looking forward to it,” the manager told the official website. “They’ve got a wonderful manager in Graham Alexander, who has done a great job there and got them to the play-offs last season. They’re an experienced team and I’m really excited to see how we go about it and to see us taking the game to them.”
The match will be Blackpool’s second of seven in the month of September, so there will be plenty to take from the packed schedule overall.
“By the end of the month we’d have learnt a hell of a lot about the group, and it will be a group thing given the number of games involved. It won’t just be the same 11; I’m sure that there will be changes.”
Though Blackpool recorded a 1-0 victory against AFC Wimbledon last time out, the manager could still contemplate changes for this game following the return to full training of Will Aimson.
“Will Aimson’s back so we’re delighted with that because he’s missed a couple of games. It gives us the option to play a different formation, if we feel it’s fit.”
