Virtue: Got To Capitalise

Midfielder Says Blackpool Must Take Chances

13 October 2019

Matty Virtue insists Blackpool must start to capitalise on positive periods of play and find that clinical touch in front of goal.

The midfielder, speaking after the 2-1 defeat to Rotherham United, was disappointed with how yesterday’s game transpired, given the Seasiders’ overall control.

“I thought in the first-half we dominated and we limited them to very little. I don’t think Jak had a save to make,” Virtue stated.  

“We had chances which we probably should have put away. I had one myself where I hit the bar and it’s disappointing.”

Though Armand Gnanduillet scored a late consolation goal from the penalty spot in added time, it’s in normal play where the chance conversion is proving an issue.

“That’s what we’ve struggled with all season. We’ve had good 15-minute spells and failed to score. We had a pretty decent spell in the whole first-half against Rotherham and we failed to score. That’s our problem at the minute and we definitely need to work on that.”
