Critchley: We're Continuing To Improve Week On Week

Neil Critchley believes his side are improving as the season goes on, as Blackpool gear up for the trip to Hull City on Tuesday night.

The Seasiders could make it three straight league victories with a win at the MKM Stadium on Tuesday. Despite picking up three wins from their last four outings, the Blackpool Head Coach still feels there are areas his side can work on to improve their performances further.

"We spoke as a staff about the game management towards the end if we're winning by a single goal," he said.

"Despite it being by just one goal in our recent victories, we've created chances throughout our matches. If we weren't creating those key chances, then I'd be worried but we've been competitive and given a really good account of ourselves against some top sides.

"I think we're getting better week on week, and there's still so much more we can do. I think we'll continue to get better throughout the course of the season, both defensively and from an attacking aspect as well."

Looking ahead to the midweek fixture, Critchley is looking forward to coming up against his opposite number Grant McCann once again, after the two sides enjoyed memorable seasons in gaining promotion last time out.

"There's a big step-up from League One to the Championship, as we know," he said.

"You look at Hull's recent results and even though they haven't been great, their performances suggest otherwise. They've got a team full of quality and have been in all of the games I've seen of them this season. Ultimately, we know how good they are, because they won our league last season.

"I fully expect their results to turn around at some point. Having been at this level two years ago, Grant will know how tough this division is, and I expect things to change for them over the course of the season.

"We know if we're not at it and flat, then they will beat us, so we need to show similar levels of recent performances on Tuesday evening."
