Gary Bowyer was disappointed not to see his side capitalise on an early goal, as Blackpool fell to a 3-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers.
A strike from Kyle Vassell had The Seasiders in front after 12 minutes at The Memorial Stadium, yet the team never kicked on and ultimately suffered a first loss in eight league matches.
Speaking post-match, here’s what the manager had to say…
A disappointing afternoon.
We’re really disappointed. We’d made a great start and scored a wonderful goal, but just before they scored we stopped doing what we’d been doing well all season and at the start of the half.
We spoke about the second-half and coming out brighter and stronger. It was a little bit hit and miss, the game, and we’re just disappointed with the way it’s panned out. The second goal, especially, is poor from us.
Players looking a little leggy, second-half.
We’ve got to make sure that we address that because we’ve got to go again on Tuesday and go again on Saturday. We haven’t got the biggest of numbers, we know that, so to freshen it up is something we might need to do for Tuesday.
Reacting against Rochdale.
We reacted ever so well after the first day defeat and went on a very good run. We’ve now got to do that again, and there’s no better opportunity than Tuesday because it presents itself so quickly.
