Kirby: Learn From Our Mistakes

On-Loan Palace Man Looks For Blackpool To Improve After Peterborough Loss

15 April 2019

Nya Kirby admits Blackpool can learn from their mistakes after they came unstuck at home to Peterborough United on Saturday.

The midfielder earned his third start since his January loan move from Crystal Palace but was on the losing side as the Seasiders fell to a 1-0 defeat.

"It was frustrating not to get a point, especially at home. It was also a frustrating goal to concede, and we tried to come back from that but we didn't have enough," he said.

"The goal they scored was a bit disappointing but we need to learn from our mistakes, and do better to react next time."

Manager Terry McPhillips changed switched formation to three at the back in the second-half, with wing-backs pushing on to provide an offensive threat, but despite looking more dangerous, Blackpool just couldn't find a way through.

"The formation change was needed to provide more of an attacking threat, and I felt we did bring more to the table, but in the end it still wasn't enough.

"I felt like we created chances, but maybe we weren't clinical enough, but I think it's one of those days where if you score, the whole game changes."
