Simon Grayson has revealed that a free week on the training ground has allowed ‘certain aspects’ of Blackpool’s play to be worked on, especially in light of the Coventry defeat.
The Seasiders are determined to right the wrongs of last weekend’s performance at St Andrew’s when hosting MK Dons at Bloomfield Road tomorrow.
“We’ve analysed the game and worked on certain aspects that we think we need to improve. Some of those things that we need to improve on were not just based on last weekend’s game – we’re always looking at what we need to do to make ourselves better.
“When you lose a game after a good run like we’ve had, you’ve got to get back to it and make sure that you go on another long, unbeaten run now.”
The visitors returned to Sky Bet League One this season after finishing in the automatic League Two promotion spots in May, so an interesting challenge awaits.
“Paul got the team promoted last season and they try and play a certain style of football,” the manager said. “They’ve got some good, experienced players and some younger players that have just gone into the team in the last week or so. They’ll look to build off the result against AFC Wimbledon.
“We know what we need to do, but we’ve got to concentrate on playing on the front foot, playing with a purpose, ask questions of the opposition and be ruthless in our penalty box and give the opposition few opportunities. Hopefully after the game we’ll still be unbeaten at home,” he added.
