Chris Maxwell has admitted Tuesday night's defeat to AFC Wimbledon was a tough loss to take, and the team need to regroup ahead of Saturday’s trip to bottom of the table Burton Albion.
The Seasiders battled hard at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, despite being down to nine men for large parts of the second half, but just couldn’t find that all important equaliser after going behind early on through Callum Reilly’s strike.
“All in all it was a tough game,” Maxwell said.
“We need to look at ourselves, and be more clinical. We need to improve in the defensive third at times. The penny needs to drop at some point for us to start gaining the all-important victories.
“There is no question for me about the work-rate and the desire within this squad, but unfortunately in professional football that isn’t enough at times. We’ve got to get back in training, knuckle down and learn from our mistakes ahead of an important game on Saturday."
