Blackpool boss delighted that training ground input is paying dividends

Blackpool boss Terry McPhillips is delighted the hard work his side are putting in on the training  ground is paying dividends on the field, as reported by the Blackpool gazette.

The Tangerines are now unbeaten in 12 matches, carrying on the stellar work Gary Bowyer started with a fantastic run. They held high-flying Peterborough at the weekend, leaving them 12th in the table.

He revealed that the method by which they opened the scoring at the weekend is something they’ve been working on a lot in recent weeks.

“We’ve been doing it in training with patterns of play. You saw for the first goal, with the move and Delf squaring it for Armand. Then the give-and-go on the edge of the box before Delf curls it into the top corner. That’s what we’ve been doing in training.”

McPhillips is active on the training ground and he believes the hard work will pay off.

“I’m a believer that if you do it in training, there’s a chance it will happen on this green stuff on a Saturday.”

Our View

With six draws and three wins, Blackpool are on the edge of either having a great start or an average one. The next couple of matches will be massive for them, so here’s hoping the training ground message is getting through.

Their next three games in the league are all at home, Rochdale, Wimbledon and Scunthorpe. If they’re on five wins and six draws after that spell, they’re in a good place.
