Turton: Confident In Our Own Ability

Defender Preview's Burton Albion Clash.

30 October 2020

Ollie Turton insists that the players are more than capable of turning their run of form around, ahead of Blackpool’s visit to Burton Albion on Saturday.

The 27-year-old, who has played every minute so far this campaign for the Seasiders, believes the results haven’t reflected Blackpool’s performances.

“I think our performances have been good. We probably should have more points than we do, but it’s little things that aren’t going for us in games,” he said.

“We’ve got to believe in what we’re doing, work hard in training and hopefully it comes together and we can start climbing the table.”

After making over 100 appearances since joining the Seasiders in 2017, Turton, now the current longest-serving player in the squad, praised the talent and spirit within the dressing room.

“All the lads are brilliant, were quite close knit which is an important factor.

“Having new players in the team is part of football. There’s some really talented players in the squad here.

The defender also praised Head Coach Neil Critchley and is determined that Blackpool can get back to winning ways ahead of their visit to Burton Albion on Saturday.

“I’ve known the manager for years. He’s great to work with and a brilliant coach. It’s nice to come into training every day knowing that you’re going to be learning.

“The whole team wants to learn from the Coach. We need to take that into Saturday’s and Tuesday’s games now and get the results for him.

“It’ll be a tough game, like every game is in this league. We need to go into the game against Burton confident in our own ability and hopefully that will pay off.”
