Coyney looks ahead to Bloomfield Road trip

Paul Hurst’s men travel to Bloomfield Road on Saturday for our penultimate away fixture in the Sky Bet League One season.

Town will be taking over 2,500 supporters to Blackpool and Town will be looking to get a win on the road heading into the last home game of the season before the Play-Offs.

Danny Coyne was pleased the side fought back from one nil down in their previous game to beat Peterborough 3-1 and feels the team can use that result as momentum against Blackpool, he said: “Any win is important for us, it gives you a bit of confidence again going into the next game. It gives the lads a lift, especially when you’re scoring three goals at home, which was a bonus for us.

“It gives you that bit of confidence. All season we have been winning a lot of games, it’s been fantastic. The lads have approached every game in the same way, and the other night it came off in the second half and we managed to win 3-1.

“The gaffer has left a couple of people out, we have had a few lads who have had little knocks and a couple of niggles, so with a bit of rest hopefully they will come back in and they’ll be fresh.”

Coyne was also pleased for Lenell John-Lewis and Stefan Payne who both managed to get on the score sheet against The Posh, he said: “For a centre forward, it’s huge.

“When they play and they’re not scoring week in week out, it takes a little bit of confidence from them, but to get the goals the other night, that’s what we’re after and in the next couple of games and we will be looking to do that again.”

Thee Goalkeeping coach is expecting a tough game from Blackpool, who have had a good season but wants the team to put on a show for the traveling Town fans, he said: “You are focused on every game you play, that’s what the lads are doing on Saturday. Anyone who is selected has to be focused on giving their best performance, leading into the Play-Offs as well.

“These games are very important but at the end of it are the Play-Off games. That’s what they need to do, to be in contention for the big games at the end of the season. With the Play-Offs, they have to be performing in these games.

“We never want to disappoint the fans, we want to give everything every game. Whether it’s a game that doesn’t mean we are going to be in any higher position in the league. But you’re playing for pride and momentum to get into the Play-Offs and the lads are playing for their place in the team.”
