McPhillips: Get Back To Winning Ways At Home

Manager Challenges Side To Get Back On Track

8 February 2019

Terry McPhillips insists Blackpool must get back on track at Bloomfield Road, as the team prepares to face Walsall this weekend.

Though The Seasiders have drawn their last two matches at home, they have gone four without victory.

That is in stark contrast to the club’s form on the road, where back-to-back wins have been recorded at Portsmouth and Coventry City.

“We’ve got to get back to winning ways at Bloomfield, simple as that,” the manager said. “We’ve got a chance on Saturday and it’s a big day for us. It’s a great chance for us to go and perform.”

The visitors this weekend have won just one of their last nine league outings, having started the campaign challenging at the top end of the division.

“When we played them early doors, they were right up there. You can have a run of wins or go unbeaten, or it can go the other way. They’re on the other way at the moment and hopefully we can capitalise on that, but nothing really surprises me in this division. If you’re not on it on the day, then anyone can beat anyone.

“They’re normally 4-4-2 but we can only predict that. They’ve signed a few players and there maybe a few changes for them. We’ll see,” McPhillips added.
