Ben Heneghan feels he’s getting back to the form he’s capable of after a mixed start to his loan spell with Blackpool.
The defender, who joined the club from Sheffield United this summer, missed a lot of first-team football last season, leaving him to play catch up.
But now, with 24 appearances under his belt, the 25-year-old is determined to push for further improvement as the season progresses.
“Starting off I was a bit rusty, which I knew I would be because last year I didn’t play much,” he said, candidly. “I knew it was going to take time to get into the swing of things, but now I feel like I’m finding my form again. I just want to kick on and play as many games as I can.”
The latest fixture he’s set to play in comes against Barnsley on Saturday, who will no doubt prove another stern test of the team’s top six credentials.
But Heneghan is firmly focused on the threat that Blackpool can pose as they look to come out on top.
“Every game in this league is a tough game. We’re just going to see what they bring and we’ve got to deal with it, simple as that.
“This is our home ground and we want to make it a fortress. There’s no way that we’re going to roll over easy. We’re going to give it to them, and they’ll have to worry about us.
“It’s about who performs better on the day and who gets the most goals. We need to make sure that’s us,” he added.
