Mitchell: We Improved In The Second Half

28 March 2021

Demetri Mitchell felt Blackpool took a while to get into their stride in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Plymouth Argyle.

The Seasiders had to come from a goal down in the game, with Sullay Kaikai and Jerry Yates giving the side the lead before Joe Edwards’ late equaliser for the visitors.

And Mitchell, who impressed yet again at right-wing, felt the side dug deep in the second half.

“We didn’t start the brightest and it took us a while to get  going,” he admitted.

“We went into the half-time break a goal down but came out and did well to get back into the game. We changed a few things at half-time. We looked sharper and faster and looked to get in behind Plymouth a lot more in the second half and I think we deserved to get something from the game.

“It’s never a nice feeling to concede so late on, and it can feel disappointing, but the unbeaten run we are on continues and we can be proud of that.”

Mitchell, who’s most natural position is at left-back, has done well on the right-hand-side lately and admits he’s enjoying playing in a further forward role.

“I’ve played on the wing in my younger days on the left or right, and enjoy it,” he said.

“I feel like I’m growing into that role even more now and will happily slot in wherever I’m needed to help the side.”
