Not expecting much to be honest. Blackpool is one of those places where we play well and end up with nothing. I’d take a draw all day long. COYY

If we lose by less than 3 it'll be a result. Hopefully we can pick up a point here and there so we don't get cut adrift between now and January at which point hopefully wholesale changes to the back 4 can happen.

Two goals from Les Taylor secured a welcome away win for Boss Bill Asprey. Stan McEwan netted a penalty
for the Seasiders.

United: David Brown - John Doyle Joe Cooke Gary Briggs Gary Watson - Les Taylor Malcolm McIntosh Billy Jeffrey
Colin Duncan - Paul Berry Peter Foley Sub: Archie White

Christ I remember Ruffels giving me a heart attack with that backpass in the last minute

WE gave the leaders a good game last week and have lost one in six. I don’t think you pay attention

I am confident we can get a result today. We will finally start to get the goals our players have deserved of late. 3-0 to OUFC . Yes a clean sheet. We will score early get a quick 2nd and play composed football for the rest of the game. Let's be optimistic!!

Every time I watch it I still expect Madine to score!

As for today, who knows? A Pompey style performance and we’ll be fine. A Swindon style second half performance and we’ll lose. A string of draws has been better than the heavy number of loses we’ve experienced in the first 15 games but they aren’t really getting us anywhere. Wins are the currency needed now and this is the first of a few opportunities. Blackpool are good and will be at least a top 12 side this season but they’re not going to be in the top two. Therefore this is an opportunity.

I wouldn’t be disappointed with another draw especially away from home. If we could be that little bit more clinical, sharp in defence and maintain a performance for the 90 mins rather than the 70 we seem to be mustering at present (I still query both the fitness and ability to maintain stamina in some of our players), I’ll regard that as further steps in the right direction.
