Heneghan: Performances Have To Change

Defender Admits Squad Is Hurting With Recent Results

19 January 2020

Ben Heneghan has admitted things haven’t been good enough on the pitch over the past few weeks, but says there is still time to turn things around.

A 1-0 defeat at Lincoln saw the Seasiders slip to 15th in the Sky Bet League One table and Heneghan has admitted the past few weeks have been disappointing for all of the squad.

“It’s not been good enough and things have to improve,” he said.

“We have to be more creative, have a few more shots and take risks in the final third at the right moments.

“It’s been really disappointing, but we have to look at ourselves and admit it hasn’t been good enough.”

Despite sitting in 15th, the Seasiders are seven points from the play-offs and Heneghan feels there is still time for the team to turn things around.

“We always have the belief that we can turn the ship around,” he explained.

“We’re all hurting. We’ve got to go into every game with the same belief and same desire that we can get a result. We are in a sticky patch, but the belief is still there.

“I don’t buy into lack of confidence being a factor, because we all still have that belief. It’s just a case of us going out there, doing our jobs correctly and putting this behind us, which we all know we can do. The opportunity to turn it around is still there, and we need to do it quickly.”
