McPhillips: Got To Be More Clinical

Manager Re-Emphasises Need To Be Ruthless Again

19 April 2019

Terry McPhillips once again emphasised the need for Blackpool to become more clinical after being held to a goal-less draw at Scunthorpe United.

The Seasiders had 59 per cent of possession at Glanford Park and registered seven shots on target, yet that dominance wasn’t converted.

“We’ve got to become more clinical. For all the football we had and the nice passages of play and possession we had, we’ve got to turn it into goals,” McPhillips stressed post-match.

“I thought we were excellent first-half, I thought we passed the ball really well without making that really good chance. We had lots of crosses and shots, but you’ve got to score when you’re on top.”

The biggest positive to take came at the other end of the pitch, where a superb late save from Chris Mafoumbi ensured that Blackpool kept a first clean sheet in 11 outings.

“We got the clean sheet, so that’s good and I’m pleased for Chris and the lads. It’s been a while since we’ve had that.

“But we don’t seem to be able to buy a win at the moment. Hopefully we’re saving that for Monday,” the manager added.
