Bowyer: Keep Getting Better

Manager Looks For More From Side

1 September 2017

Gary Bowyer insists his Blackpool side won’t rest on its laurels following a positive start to the season.

The Seasiders, who prepare to face AFC Wimbledon tomorrow, took seven points from a possible 12 in the opening month of the campaign, having been promoted back up to Sky Bet League One in May.

“It was a tough month, we knew that when the fixtures came out, but the return of points we’ve got has been very good,” the manager admitted. “We’ve just got to keep working harder and getting better. We can’t stop now and pat ourselves on the back for what we’ve done or the start that we’ve made.”

The first-half performance against Oldham Athletic last time out was Blackpool’s best of the campaign so far, with the manager still full of praise for the quality on display.   

“Like I said, the first 45 minutes was one of the best I’ve been involved in as a manager. From a coaching point of view, the way we took the game to Oldham, the football that we played and the quality of the goals was fantastic.”

The visitors to Bloomfield Road tomorrow were promoted to this division 12 months ago and will prove formidable opponents.

 “We know that it’s going to be a hell of a challenge. They got promoted last season and stayed in the league through being well organised and having some threat at the top end of the pitch, which we’re aware of,” Bowyer added.
