Nathan Delfouneso insists Blackpool will come back much stronger following the disappointment of yesterday’s 3-2 defeat at Fleetwood Town.
The forward was quick to admit that Pool’s performance at Highbury was an uncharacteristic one, given that the club had previously been on an 11-match unbeaten run in the league.
“We are all disappointed in there, no doubt about that. You don’t want to lose any game. We know we’re much better than that, but we can’t be too downhearted because we’ve done a lot of good work before this one game,” Delfouneso said.
“They were on the front foot and you could tell they were hungry. They scored two goals, and once they score two goals you always know it’s going to be a mountain to climb, even though we feel we can come back. Unfortunately we couldn’t. We’ll now look back at it and come back stronger.”
From a personal point of view, Delfouneso set up Jordan Thompson for Blackpool’s first goal in the game and then added one himself to reduce the deficit for a second time.
“I’m happy to get an assist and a goal individually but, at the same time, it didn’t help us to go and get any points out of the game.
“Overall, it’s one defeat in 12 matches and I’ve no doubt we’ll come back stronger,” he added.
