Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer has admitted that Blackpool have had to change their playing style, especially at home to the deteriorating nature of the Bloomfield Road pitch. The Seaside outfit earned a glowing reputation during the opening months of the campaign, where their brilliant passing game coincided with their storming start to the season.
Blackpool managed a 2-1 over Leyton Orient to only secure their second away win of the season.
The team has been extremely strong at Bloomfield Road after only one defeat, which came at the start of the season. Since then, they have been largely dependent on their home form in order to remain in contention for the play-off places. Manager Gary Bowyer was looking to improve the club’s form away from home in order to make them a force to reckon with in the League Two. The club has slipped a lot from the highflying days of the Premier League.
Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer is hoping to have some of his injured strikers back in contention for the game against Wycombe this weekend.
Blackpool are having an injury crisis up front with as many as four strikers being unable to play due to various injuries.
Danny Philliskirk,Kyle Vassell, Jack Redshaw, and Jamille Matt are the current injury concerns plaguing the club. The treatment table also welcomed midfielder Colin Daniel after his injury in the 1-1 draw with Barnet a few days ago. However, managerBowyer says that the club has good news on this regard since the injury is not as big as initially feared.
Mark Cullen is the only fit forward at the disposal ofBowyer. He scored the goal in the game against Barnet but Blackpool were unable to come away with all three points due to a late equaliser fromJohn Akinde. After having managed an opening day victory against Exeter City, Blackpool have been unable to capitalise on the good form shown in pre-season. They suffered a 2-1 loss against Morecambe in the previous game before this draw. The club need to return to winning ways soon and the home match against Wycombe Wanderers could just help them in this regard.
Blackpool suffered relegation from the English League One and will now have to compete in the English League Two.
