Bola: Frustrating Break

Left-Back Looking Forward To Getting Back To League Action

8 February 2019

Marc Bola can’t wait to get back out on the field tomorrow, having been frustrated to go without a match last weekend.

An enforced break from the action came due to The Seasiders’ fixture at Accrington Stanley being postponed.

“It was frustrating,” the left-back admitted. “We just wanted to get out there and play. We got the text in the morning to say that the game had been cancelled and it was a bit of a downer.

“We’ve now got some big games coming up, but we’ve got to focus on Walsall first. In the last game we played them they were physical, so we’ve got to match them. We’ve just got to do our side of the game. It’s more about us than it is about them.”

Blackpool will be aiming to get back to winning ways on home soil after a run of four league games without victory at Bloomfield Road. That’s something that the 21-year-old expects to be rectified, though.

“Personally, I thought we should have beaten Wycombe. We just got done by two sloppy goals on set-pieces. There are no worries (about our home form) we’ll just see how we go on the weekend and try and get a result from there.”

As for Bola himself, he’s now featured 33 times this season and made the full-back position his own.

 “I’m doing all right. I’ve still got a lot to learn, I’m still young and I’ve got a few experienced lads that help me through, like the skipper (Jay Spearing), Mark Howard and Curtis Tilt. Everyone in general kind of helps everybody out.

“We’re like a family. We all look out for each other and we all support each other,” he added.
