Michael Dawson admits the team are ‘bitterly disappointed’ after last night’s 3-1 defeat at Blackpool but knows we have to pick ourselves up.
The captain was left shell-shocked by a result that says little for the amount of chances we had at Bloomfield Road compared to the hosts.
But the defender is willing to accept the Seasiders were more clinical in front of goal, beating us at our own game of counter-attacking football.
And although ‘Daws’ believes a goal with the scores still at 2-0 could have changed things, he is already looking forward to putting things right.
He said: “We had all the chances, but they created four or five opportunities and scored three goals.
“We are bitterly disappointed with the goals we gave away and obviously not putting a few in the back of the net at the other end.
“The first one was a penalty and with the second we were on the attack and they broke away. It is normally us doing that to teams but they did it to us.
“We knew at half time and said make sure we get the next goal. If we could have got one early in the second half then they would have been on the back foot.
“We've got ten days now to think about it and as players you look at performances and results - but we've got to move on. It was a disappointing night, but credit to Blackpool.”
The squad will now spend the next week undertaking warm weather training in Dubai in preparation for our next fixture at Wolves in 11 days' time.
