Dewsbury-Hall: We Did Ourselves Proud In Second Half

Midfielder Reflects On Tranmere Defeat

11 March 2020

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall feels Blackpool gave it their all against Tranmere, but a few lapses in concentration cost the team in the narrow defeat.

Two first half goals from Morgan Ferrier and James Vaughan gave the visitors a 2-0 lead at the interval. The Seasiders showed real character in the second 45 minutes however, dominating proceedings with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall scoring his fourth goal for the Club with a stunning strike from distance to give Blackpool hope of a second half fight back.

Despite not being able to pull the game back in their favour, the on-loan Leicester man feels there were plenty of positivies in the performance.

"I think everyone gave it their all in the second half," Dewsbury-Hall said.

"We let ourselves down a little bit in the first half. It's little lapses of concentration that have let us down in the first half, and to concede the second goal just before half-time is a real killer. It makes things really difficult for you to go in at half time two goals down. 

"However, I think we can be proud of how we performed in the second half. We completely dominated it for the full 45 minutes and maybe if one or two balls dropped for us in the right position, I honestly feel we could have gone on and won the game.

"We've got a good opportunity to bounce back on Saturday against Sunderland, and if we perform anywhere near like we did in the second half against Tranmere, I feel we'll have a great chance of collecting the three points."
