Spearing: Big Result Due

Skipper Backs Side To Find Form In Front of Goal

25 January 2019

Jay Spearing says there is a firm belief in the Blackpool squad that a big result is just around the corner.

A 3-0 victory at home to Burton Albion in November has been The Seasiders’ best margin of victory so far this campaign, yet the chance conversion has dried up somewhat in recent weeks.

“I feel that the consistency of our game level has always stayed the same, even though we’ve maybe not been putting the ball in the back of the net. I believe we can work on that in training, which we are thoroughly,“ Spearing said.

“We believe that we are ready to maybe beat someone three or four nil. We’re looking for that to come as soon as possible.

“We’ve got a difficult game on Saturday against Coventry, but we’ve got nothing to lose. We can go away from home, work hard and look for those three points.”

The arrivals of Chris Long and Elias Sørensen this month will certainly add to Blackpool’s goal threat in attacking areas, with the skipper pleased to see extra competition arrive.

“We’ve said in the last few weeks now that we’ve needed a bit more power up top. We’ve brought in Longy to help Armand and Joe is nearly back from injury as well, which is a good sign.

“Elias came in and trained on Tuesday and we’ve heard a lot of good things about him. He’s another lad in the squad who can push on and hopefully put the ball in the back of the net for us,” Spearing added.
