Maxwell: A Learning Curve

3 October 2020

Chris Maxwell has admitted the Blackpool squad will learn a lot from Saturday’s defeat to Lincoln City.

The Seasiders succumbed to a late fight back from the visitors, falling to a 3-2 defeat at Bloomfield Road.

Reflecting on the game, Maxwell admitted it was a tough game for both sides and felt it was a game of two halves.

“I think it was a tough game for both sides, and Lincoln managed to come out on top in the end,” he said.

“I think we dominated the first half and the only real chance Lincoln had was with the penalty. We were under the cosh a little in the second half, and we had to soak up a good bit of pressure from Lincoln.

“We had a stroke of luck in retaking the lead late on, but then things turned. The red card happened, which James Husband held his hands up for, and we unfortunately fell short at the end.

“We’re a new group and a young group, and we certainly haven’t come away from the game thinking we played poorly,” he continued.

“I think when the dust settles and we analyse the game on Sunday and Monday, we’ll realise that it was little mistakes and individual errors that have cost us. If we want to be successful, which everyone here does, we have to eradicate those errors.

“My belief in the time that we have here, both as individuals and as a squad, is that we have the potential to be a real success this season. We just need to learn, grow and become a strong unit together, which I’m sure will come.”
