Ryan Edwards is looking to use Saturday’s defeat to Shrewsbury as motivation during the busy Christmas period.
The Seasiders started their hectic festive schedule of five games in a fortnight with a 1-0 home defeat to Shrewsbury Town, courtesy of a second half penalty.
Reflecting on the defeat, Ryan Edwards feels there’s still many games remaining in the season to make up any lost ground in the defeat to Salop.
“It’s only the fourth game we’ve lost in the league this season, and there’s still a long way to go,” he said.
“We knew heading into the game what Shrewsbury were about. They play an effective style of football and they’re good at what they do. You know they’re going to get men behind the ball and they’re a big strong team, so they definitely play to their strengths.
“We probably played a little too direct during spells in the game, and pumped the ball up to Armand Gnanduillet and Joe Nuttall too often at times. It’s frustrating as we’ve been in good form lately, but we’ll learn from it and move on.
“We’ve now got a perfect opportunity to bounce back on Boxing Day here against Accrington Stanley. The games are coming thick and fast and we’ll look to get back to winning ways quickly.”
