Maxwell: A Bad Day At The Office

7 February 2021

Chris Maxwell admits Blackpool had a bad day at the office in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Ipswich.

The Seasiders made the trip to Portman Road looking to make it three straight league wins, but goals from Alan Judge and Luke Woolfenden either side of half-time gave the hosts all three points.

Reflecting on the match, the Blackpool Captain admits the side weren’t at the races, and weren’t helped in the timing of both of Ipswich’s goals.

“It’s a match we need to learn from and put behind us,” he said.

“We didn’t deserve to win the match, and Ipswich scored at really vital times – right at the end of the first half and at the start of the second half.

“We’ve come off the back of two excellent wins and have lost to an Ipswich team who will be there or there abouts come the end of the season. It’s important we learn from a defeat like this, and take that feeling of disappointment and put it right.”

Looking ahead to upcoming matches, Maxwell admits playing at home for the next three games gives the side a good opportunity to look for maximum points.

“We’ve got three important matches over the course of the next week now,” he said.

“Burton on Tuesday evening will be a test. They come into the game on the back of an impressive win over Hull on Saturday, and will be fighting tooth and nail for all points in their fight to get out of the relegation zone.

“We know we can be a real threat and we have proved that many times this season. The next three league matches at home give us a good opportunity to put the Ipswich result to bed and bounce back in a strong fashion.”
