Delfouneso: Feels Like A Defeat

Forward Disappointed To Draw

26 August 2018

Nathan Delfouneso says Blackpool’s 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley yesterday felt like a defeat, given how late The Seasiders conceded an equaliser.

The forward broke the deadlock in the 66th minute for Blackpool after a period of dominance, however the team were left to rue missed opportunities when Mark Hughes levelled in added time.

“It does (feel like a defeat), especially when you feel like you’re on top and you concede so late,” Delfouneso said. “They’re going to throw everything at it, so you’ve got to expect that, being 1-0 so late in the game. I definitely feel like we’ve dropped two points.

“That’s the danger when you don’t put chances away, there’s always that risk of conceding. At the same time, a bit of game management maybe should have seen us keep the ball a bit better at certain times and in certain areas. Maybe we should have thought about it a bit more, but it’s all ifs and buts.”

Despite the end result, the 27-year-old believes signs are bright for Pool’s new-look side after plenty of change and transition.

“We’ve got to remember that we’re still a new team with a lot of changes on and off the field with players and staff. We’re getting there and we’re going to keep improving and keep working hard every day,” he added.
