Ryan Determined To Keep Putting Performances In

Skipper Aims To Build On Man of the Match Display

19 February 2018

Jimmy Ryan says he’s determined to keep performing consistently for Blackpool after returning to the side recently.

The skipper, who started his first game for a month at Wigan in midweek, picked up the Man of the Match award yesterday as The Seasiders drew 1-1 with Peterborough United.

“I felt good and hopefully I can keep putting those performances in until the end of the season and get us up the table,” he said post-match.

“It’s not about personal accolades or anything like that, it’s about fighting our way and trying to get up the table as a team and do well. Once we get safe, we can start looking up.”

The point Blackpool picked up against Grant McCann’s side took their tally for the season to 39, with every positive result making a difference at this stage of the campaign.

“I thought we definitely deserved a point, if not the three really,” Ryan admitted. “We just couldn’t get the goal second-half, but we pushed forward, played well and battled away. We were on top second-half but just couldn’t get that break.

“We’re disappointed that we didn’t get the win but you take a point at this stage of the season because every point counts. We now go on to Saturday and hopefully we can get the three points there,” he added.
