The result kept Town two points ahead of the TangerinesLeft back Amari’i Bell felt today’s goalless draw against Neil McDonald’s Blackpool outfit was a decent point in the end for his side.
The contest was a tight affair and chances were at a premium; Jimmy Ryan hit the bar in the second half and Danny Phillskirk saw a couple of efforts go wide.
The draw kept Town two points above the Tangerines in what was the first ever Football League meeting between the two sides at Highbury Stadium.
Bell said: “It was a tough game for us to be fair. If we’d have won it then we would have put it to bed, but on the whole it’s another point for us.
“We’ve got two more games to play and they’re in our own hands so hopefully we can pick up a win in at least one of them to help our season.
“We didn’t really create any clear cut chances but did have one opportunity when Jimmy hit the bar. A bit of luck on another day and that would have gone in.
“They had a goal disallowed which was good for us because a defeat here would have been disappointing. It was a decent draw in the end.
“In the first half we did well but didn’t do as great after the break. I think the game on Tuesday had an impact on us but we coped well.
“We just need to stay strong now as a team and go into our next game mentally and physically right. We need to pick up three points.
“Walsall are a good team and a tough side to play against, but we believe we can go there and get the job done which would boost us.”
