Grayson: Working Towards A Better Performance

Manager Looks For Improvement At Gillingham

20 August 2019

Simon Grayson insists that his Blackpool side must continue to work hard in order to maintain a winning start to the season.

The Seasiders, who have won their opening three games of a league campaign for the first time since 2012/13, head to Gillingham tonight knowing that they must improve on Saturday’s display at home to Oxford.

“We’ve addressed the situation of what we need to do better and hopefully we can come away with a positive result again,” the manager said.

“The performance wasn’t to the standard that we’d have liked in different departments, but it’s all about how you grind results out sometimes. Individuals know what we need to do better and we’ll be working towards getting a better performance.

“We’re not getting complacent or getting ahead of ourselves. We have to make sure that we keep working hard and working to maintain our winning run.”

Tonight’s hosts had a free weekend to prepare for this match following the EFL’s decision to postpone a fixture at Bury, so Blackpool must rise to the challenge of travelling down for a midweek encounter.

“Steve Evans teams don’t give you anything for free. You’ve got to make sure that you stand up to be counted. We need to have a good shape, work hard and match them physically. Hopefully our quality can come through,” Grayson added.
