Goalkeeper Dean Lyness has said he had no worries when it came to returning to Bloomfield Road and Blackpool for another loan spell.

The 24 year old stopper made seven appearances for the club prior to the turn of the New Year and he made his second debut for the club following his return last Saturday following a second deal being arranged with the injury sustained by Colin Doyle.

Speaking to the Official Site with him in training again this week with the lads, he explained.

‘I got the phone call to say that there was an opportunity to come back here and I was more than willing to come back up. It was just a case of getting all the paperwork done and making way up here on Friday night. The gaffer and the coaching staff here have expressed a real desire to try and get me and as soon as they got in touch, I didn’t take much persuading.’

Having returned to parent club Burton Albion, despite working hard in training he couldn’t impress himself on their first team plans so Shrewsbury was his first game in 2016, but now he has another chance with us he’s looking forward to grabbing that chance with both hands again.

‘The management at Burton have been great with me since I’ve been back, I still feel sharp, fit and ready to go. If I can contribute, then brilliant.’

Of course he wasn’t able to keep a clean sheet as he hoped last weekend with the three two loss, but he’s hoping to put that right tonight against Oldham Athletic.

‘It was a made 30 minutes that cost us, really. After that we were completely dominant and a few chances fell just on the wrong side for us, and we could have escaped with a point or possibly a win. But that game is gone now and our full focus is on the game tonight. If we get the points then it helps us pull away a little bit and stops Oldham catching up. That’s what we’ll be trying to do.’
