Solomon-Otabor: Improving Game By Game

Winger Enhancing Development With Blackpool

28 September 2017

Viv Solomon-Otabor says a regular run of games in the Blackpool side is advancing his development as a player.

The winger, on loan from Birmingham City, has started eight of the club’s 10 league matches so far this season and is happy with the way things are progressing.

“It’s good to be in the team week in, week out and getting a lot of game time, playing 90 minutes every week. It toughens you up mentally and gets you prepared for the game coming next,” he told the official website.

“I feel like I’m improving game-by-game - mentally, physically and as a footballer as well. It’s good for me.”

Though his pace and skills have been a real outlet for Blackpool in attacking areas, the 21-year-old acknowledges the need to add goals to his name.

“The only thing that is missing now is a goal but I’m getting closer and closer. Hopefully in the next game I can get the goal but, more importantly, the team is playing well and everyone is working hard for each other.”

The Seasiders, having taken 18 points from the opening 10 fixtures, head to Southend United this weekend looking to round the month off with a positive result.

“It’s going to be a very tough game but if we can go there and play how we’ve been playing before, and with a willingness to fight and win, then I’m sure we can get the three points,” Solomon-Otabor added.
