Alnwick: Best Is Yet To Come

Further Improvements To Come, Says Keeper

21 October 2019

Jak Alnwick believes the best is yet to come from Blackpool ahead of the visit of Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday evening.

Despite Simon Grayson’s men sitting just outside the play-off places after 13 matches, the goalkeeper insists the team can get a lot better in the coming months.

“If, at the start of the season, people had said you’re going to be in eighth after 13 matches but you haven’t played your best football yet, I’m sure many would have taken that,” he said.

“I think we’ve had spells in games where we’ve played some really good stuff, but there is still so much to come from this team, and that is a good place for us to build from.”

Looking ahead to Tuesday night’s match with second place Wycombe, Alnwick believes it is an opportunity the squad must grasp with both hands.

“Wycombe are in the position they’re in for a reason,” he said. “They’re a good side and we’ve got to give them the respect they deserve for being where they are in the league.”

“Having said that, Tuesday night represents a really good opportunity for us to claim three points from a team above us in the table and ultimately climb closer to them.”
