Neil McDonald has faced the media ahead of Blackpool’s home game with Shrewsbury.

The Seasiders sit in 18th place in the League One table and will hope to move further clear of the drop zone with a victory over their relegation rivals.

McDonald claims that his players “have adjusted to the division and the opposition.” He feels that his side are in for a “stronger second half of the season.”

McDonald was quick to praise his players for their recent form, and has reiterated that he hopes to put more points in the board in the next two home games.

He was full of praise for Saturday’s opponents. “They’re a very difficult team to break down,” said McDonald. “They’ve got a couple of threats which we need to take care of.”

The Blackpool boss also spoke of his sadness at the passing of Phil Gartside. “On behalf of Blackpool, I pass on our condolences to Carol, his wife, and his family.”
