Manager Lee Clark has called on Blackpool to avoid setting anymore unwanted records as we head into the game against Cardiff City tomorrow.

Blackpool are looking obviously to try and win at least one game on our travels in 2014-15 and we still need two points to avoid setting the Championship’s all time lowest points haul in a campaign as well.

Speaking to the Official Site in his pre game press conference our manager wanted the club to end the away season on a high and ‘rare’ positive note.

‘There’s too many unwanted records being set this season, but they’re two we can certainly avoid having on the record books, which is part of our motivation. We’ve got to gain a few points to make sure we don’t end with the division’s lowest ever total, which is at the forefront of our mind.’

Having called on the squad to end on a high note, Clark went on to talk about the positives he has seen in our performances since relegation to League One was confirmed.

‘In some of our games we’ve had decent performances, but obviously it’s about results as well, so we need to try and get a result. We feel our performances have deserved more than what we’ve got, with the exception of Derby, but we have to understand that it comes within the game, we have to learn how to win games when we’re on top.’

In terms of team news ahead of the game, Clark also revealed that he was hopeful of being able to welcome back Miles Addison for the game after he missed the last five with injury.

‘We’re hoping Miles comes through the last session on Friday without any impact and he’ll be available. He showed everyone when he came through the door that he was a good asset for us, but obviously the injury problems which have plagued him for a while returned. We’re hoping he can finish the season strongly.’

The gaffer however was less positive when it came to the injury sustained by Tom Barkhuizen in the game against Fulham where he had to be substituted.

‘Tom Barkhuizen won’t be available, he won’t travel after taking a heavy knock last weekend. We have one or two other niggles which we’ll have to assess overnight, so the picking of the team will be left to the last minute.’
