Grayson: A Chance To Continue Preparation

Manager On Postponed Tranmere Fixture

24 January 2020

Simon Grayson insists having no game this weekend gives the squad further time to analyse and focus for a crucial few weeks that lie ahead.

Saturday’s match at home to Tranmere was postponed after Rovers progression into the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup. This means Blackpool’s next two fixtures are away to both Wycombe Wanderers and Oxford United on Tuesday and Saturday, respectively.

“It wasn’t ideal in finding out the game was postponed so late on the Thursday night, but that’s football,” Grayson said.

“It gives us a good opportunity to look back on our recent matches. Not having a match this weekend just gives us another day to prepare for what will be a different match at Wycombe on Tuesday evening.

“Ultimately, the extra day in training gives us the time to nail down the areas where we need to improve as a team. It also gives all of the new lads more time on the grass to learn how their team mates play and how we work as a team and staff.

“We’re disappointed the game isn’t on this weekend, but the break from a match will certainly not be wasted and we will use the time wisely ahead of what is a busy and important period on the horizon.”
