Watch | Nathan Jones' pre-Blackpool press conference

Manager Nathan Jones insisted he has had a ‘good response’ from his players as they aim to end a run of four matches without a win when they face Blackpool on Saturday afternoon.

Defeat against Cardiff meant the Hatters dropped to 15th place in the Sky Bet Championship but a win on the weekend could take them as high as 8th, such is the competitive nature of the division.

Jones, however, is not alarmed by the run of form and trusts his players to put things right sooner rather than later.

“We haven’t won in four, but we should have. We went to Forest and we were excellent. We missed a penalty, and we should have won. When I came back here after COVID it was all about results because we had no time to go deeper into things because we had nine games to save our skin. We managed to do that and now we’re evolving and building.

“At times we have to take one or two things on the chin but now is the time where we have to go back and get results now because that is really important.”

Equally, the gaffer knows it will be a tough test against a well-drilled Blackpool side, admitting: “The Championship is relentless, it’s constant, you can do amazing things and not get a result and that is the way the league is.

“Blackpool are a good side, they’re a good club, I know first-hand that they’re an excellent club. They are really well run, they have a good structure and a good manager with a good way of playing.

It’s a really tough game, going away to their place, decent crowd and as we know from our battles at league Two and League One level, it’s a tough place to go.”
