Speaking to the Blackpool official site, manager Neil McDonald has said Blackpool were unlucky against Gillingham and ‘dominated the game’.
McDonald’s men put in a decent display against the league leaders with Brad Potts being the standout man, however Pool were unable to gain anything from the game and picked up their fifth defeat out of seven league games.
McDonald said: ‘Ironically, we didn`t play very well at Scunthorpe last week yet we took three points. We dominated the game against a top of the table team today but come away with nothing.’
He went on to add: ‘The performance was much better and what I wanted at times. We were passing the ball much better and getting at the back four. If that second goal had have come, which I think we deserved, we certainly wouldn`t have come away with no points.’
The Seasiders take on mid table Barnsley at home this Saturday in a game that needs to be won. Performances have certainly improved but what really matters is results and McDonald will be keen to pick up that first home win.
Meanwhile in other news, the Blackpool Gazette have revealed Martin Paterson should soon seal his move to the Seasiders after agreeing a deal over the weekend.
