Gary Bowyer says the mood in the Blackpool squad has been good, despite not having a fixture for the last two weeks.
The manager has utilised the extra time without a match to work on several aspects of play with the squad and is now looking forward to seeing how those things pan out against Bury.
“It’s given us the time on the training ground to put one or two things, hopefully, into practice,” he admitted.
“In the last two weeks the lads have trained really well, the spirit’s been good, the atmosphere has been good and they’re really looking forward to a game on grass now.”
The Seasiders head to Gigg Lane aiming to end a run of disappointing results that has strong similarities to this time last season.
“We were in a similar sort of situation (last season) but I believe, this time around, we’re playing a lot better than what we were when we were going through it last year. It’s now up to the players to step up, cut out the individual errors, stick together and go and try and win a game at Bury,” he added.
