Once again Gary Bowyer feels missed chances proved costly for Blackpool at Crawley as failure to take these is all that stood between the two sides in a match Pools could have had wrapped up by half time.

After the one-nil defeat he told the Official Website.

‘I felt that we should have been out of sight at half-time with the chances that we had – Armand`s header and Danny Philliskirk`s two great opportunities. Colin Daniel has then whizzed a ball across the front and we`ve not got on the end of it.’

Crawley, who are going along well in a play-off position at the moment, were a side Bowyer felt Blackpool ‘combated’ well with them not ‘troubling us’ too much apart from the goal, which he felt was credit to our performance.

He finished.

‘You`re always going to have spells where the opposition have the ball, but we coped with. We went back to doing things that we spoke about after the Crewe game that we`d put right in the Portsmouth game. We went back to playing as individuals.’

A lack of consistency has proven costly to Blackpool this season, which is often leading to Bowyer ‘bemoaning’ or ‘ruing’ something.
