Jay Spearing says the Blackpool squad is determined to keep working hard in an effort to further improve on a good run of results in Sky Bet League One.
The Seasiders have taken at least a point from eight of their last nine fixtures in the division and head into the Easter period in positive spirits.
“One defeat in nine is something we’re very happy with, but we want to try and turn a few more of them draws in to wins,” the midfielder said.
“We’ve got to keep working each day and keep working hard to get ready for a busy period. We’ve got a game on Friday and a game on Monday. It’s a big one on Friday at home first and we want to try and get the three points.”
Blackpool’s recent run of results has coincided with Spearing lining up alongside his former Liverpool schoolboy team-mate Jimmy Ryan. The pair have alternated at stages during the season, however the experience of both in the engine room has now come to the fore for the business end of the campaign.
“Me and Jimmy have been working hard all year and we’re good mates as well off the field. It’s good when you’ve got an understanding with each other,” Spearing explained. “The gaffer has put us both back in there together and thankfully, touch wood, it’s working. We want to keep that going until the end of the season.”
One area where Jimmy holds the upper hand at the moment is in attack, with Spearing the only outfield player at MK Dons last weekend without a goal this season.
“It’s something I’ve always tried to chip in with throughout the season where possible, and it is something that is on my mind. I want to try and bring that side a little more if I can,” the 29-year-old admitted.
“For me, it’s all about the general game and if I can assist or stop one going in at the other end, then it’s something I still get a buzz off. Scoring a goal would give another buzz though,” he added.
