Delfouneso: Not Getting Carried Away

Forward Focused On Further Improvement

14 September 2017

Nathan Delfouneso insists that nobody is getting carried away by Blackpool's strong start to the season.

The Seasiders are currently on a six-match unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One, yet the focus is firmly on continual improvement. 

"It’s pretty clear that we’ve started off quite strong and that confidence is high in the camp, but we can’t get carried away. It’s a very long season," the forward said.

"We're all learning together and we're all coming through things together, not matter who is on the pitch. We've got to build on the start that we've had and continue to improve as well."

Delfouneso recovered from illness in time to make an impact off the bench against Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night and found the net in a 3-1 victory.

"I was devastated to miss the game last Saturday, but the boys went to a very tough place and got a very good result," he admitted.

"I was happy to be back involved on Tuesday night and I’m sure Longy (Sean Longstaff) will say the same as well. It’s great to get the three points and our first away win of the season. 

"We’ve shown since the start of the season that there’s a lot of good character in the team. We’ve come up against different situations and stood up to a lot of situations as well."

Attentions now turn to a home game against Oxford United this weekend, as Blackpool look to maintain a 100 per cent start to the campaign on home soil.

"We always look to make sure that we’re strong at home so we’ll prepare and recover to go again," Delfouneso added.
