McPhillips: A Big Thanks To The Staff

Interim Manager Praises Coaching Support

31 August 2018

Terry McPhillips has praised the rest of the Blackpool coaching staff for their hard work in recent weeks.

Since stepping up to take interim charge, McPhillips has relied on the support structure around him and tried to retain the same stability provided by Gary Bowyer.  

“Everybody has mucked in and I have to say a big thank-you to all of them,” Pool’s interim manager said.

“We’ve all just given it a right, good go and we try to do our best with the players, without changing anything, to keep it going as we have done. So far, it’s not gone too bad.”

The Seasiders are unbeaten in five matches heading to Walsall tomorrow and have looked a real threat at set-pieces.

“I thought on Tuesday we were a bigger, stronger outfit than them. Their staff were very complimentary after the game. That paid for us in the end, getting the balls in the box and just asking the questions, as well as Michael’s long throw,” McPhillips admitted.

This weekend’s opposition have made a strong start to the new campaign, winning four of their opening five league fixtures.

“They’ve had a great start under a new manager who has come from the conference with Wrexham, where he was used to winning games. They’ve started off this season winning games and they’ve been on a winning run so are right up there.

“If we are to go on a really good run ourselves, we have to start finishing off the numerous chances that we’ve created in the last two games,” he added.
