Turton: Got To Take Our Chances

Seasiders Look To Capitalise On Performances

2 September 2018

Ollie Turton emphasised that Blackpool must start to take their chances if they are to turn draws into victories in Sky Bet League One.

Another solid and controlled display ought to have been rewarded with three points at Walsall yesterday, where Blackpool had the best of the opportunities in what ended up a stalemate.

“I felt we had a lot of the ball and with the chances we had, you’ve got to take them,” Turton said. “In my opinion, they didn’t seem to trouble us too much. I think we cancelled them out really well.

“Everybody was a bit frustrated, obviously we wanted the three points and we felt like we could have taken all three points if we’d taken our chances. But it’s a point away from home, and it could be a vital point for us.”

The clean sheet was Blackpool’s fourth of the season and third consecutively on the road in the league, providing a strong foundation for when things click into place.  

“We’ve not conceded a goal away yet and hopefully that can continue. We’re looking really strong defensively and not many teams have really troubled us. That needs to carry on, and it’s just the other side from everyone in trying to create the goals. I think that will come in the end,” he admitted.

Known for his versatility in the squad, Turton has featured in midfield for the past few matches following a previous spell there in his Crewe days.

“I’ve played there in the past and Terry has asked me to do a job there. I’m happy to do that because I enjoy it in there, I like getting on the ball and trying to play,” he added.
