Grayson: Full Focus On Doncaster

Blackpool Look To Shake Off Weekend's Disappointment

17 September 2019

Simon Grayson insists Blackpool’s full focus is now on tonight’s match at Doncaster Rovers and getting back to winning ways.

The manager and squad sat through a video review of Saturday’s disappointing defeat to MK Dons on Sunday and are now set on moving past that with an improved response and performance at the Keepmoat.

“We made three individual errors, bad errors. If you do that in games, then you’re not going to give yourselves a platform to win football matches from,” Grayson said.

“But we weren’t getting carried away when we won the first three games of the season and we won’t get too despondent about losing back-to-back games. We have to remember that because it’s a long season. You’re not just judged on a couple of games, but we’ve got to get back to winning ways.”

Training in the past 48 hours has been exactly how the manager would want it, with the players determined and keen to shake off the mini slump.

“We trained with a purpose and there was nobody down in the dumps or moping around. There’s a spring in the step and a real sense of correcting what went wrong.

“We’re not a million miles away. If we tweak a couple of things from the Coventry game, then we win that game. If we don’t make the mistakes we did on Saturday, we give ourselves a better opportunity of winning that game.  

“We’ve got to keep clean sheets and be more ruthless in the opposition box when chances come our way as well.

“All we’re focusing on now is Doncaster, who’ve had a good start and got a good point at the weekend at Ipswich. Darren has gone in there and is trying to build off what they did last season. We’re just approaching the game and making sure that we do better with certain things.”
