If Blackpool had turned some of the seven draws from the past 10 into wins we would be in the play-offs if not challenging for something more. A 2-2 draw at Barnet was secured on Tuesday when an added time goal secured a point at the Hive, which would have been taken at two down.

Nathan Delfouneso – who scored the first goal to get Blackpool back in the game – said this draw was secured by the character and good spirit shown by Pools.

However, Delfouneso was frustrated that we were in that position in the first place with these draws needing to be turned into wins. He told the Official Website.

‘We didn’t lose and we showed good character and good spirit to come back to 2-2, but I feel like we shouldn’t really have been in that situation in the first place. We needed three points but at the same time we didn’t lose. We’ve had too many draws and we need to change those draws into victories.’

Goals aren’t an issue – the draws are – with six in the last three but the collective mistakes are proving costly.

Former Aston Villa and England U21 international Delfouneso – who returned to Bloomfield Road this season for a second spell to again work with his former Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer – is now looking for improvement and a run of wins.

‘We can’t keep making mistakes which are costing us goals. We need victories and we need to make sure that we cut out these mistakes so that we can move forward.’
