Basically Neil McDonald’s taken the point against Bury, yet is looking for more (and better) on Easter Monday.

The search for a Blackpool win at home goes on with us having to settle for a one-all draw against Bury at Bloomfield Road on Friday.

McDonald knows we’ve got to play with more ‘fluidity’, especially when at home, but admitted to the Official Website we’ve played much worse at Bloomfield this season and not go anything so he’ll accept this point!

But he said, which could well be needed in a big game, he’s looking for improvement on Monday against relegation rivals Doncaster.

‘We’ve certainly played better than that this season and lost, so we’ll take the point and look to be a lot better throughout the 90 minutes on Monday against Doncaster. We always want three at home but we certainly didn’t play with a fluidity like we have been doing and didn’t counter attack like we did against Crewe. We got the goal but just couldn’t hang on.’

When Bright Osayi-Samuel and Mark Yeates came on in the second half he feels they helped with our improvement as in the first half we ‘never really got it moving’ but ‘upped the tempo a little bit’ in the second half.

This helped us get the penalty that Danny Philliskirk was able to score from.

Concentration was lost though and just two-minutes later Danny Mayor equalised for Bury to see us drop two-points with him finishing by saying he was (rightly so) to see us concede a goal so quickly, and so easily.

‘We just lost that bit of concentration and communication in the aerial challenge where they’ve flicked it on and then scored inside our box. They never really caused us that many problems in the first-half or the second-half and it’s disappointing to concede a goal like that.’

It’s set up for a huge Easter Monday game at Doncaster isn’t it!
