'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Burgess Wants Goals, Goals, Goals

Saturday saw Ben Burgess score his first goal since November as Blackpool gained a point away at QPR, and now the striker has set his sights on scoring more.

'Yeah, I start great, don't I ... and often finish terribly!' remarked Burgess.

'But it is always good to score the first goal, especially in the first game. I possibly should have scored just before it. But Gary Taylor-Fletcher did brilliantly for the goal and laid it off for me.

'It gives you confidence and hopefully I'll score a few more.

'I thought we played some nice stuff, particularly considering that we've got some new players. They will get to know each other the more they play together.

'I think the final ball could have been better but it is early days yet and we will click.'

Burgess paid tribute to his new boss Holloway, adding: 'He is very enthusiastic and that rubs off on everyone.

'He is not just some Mad Hatter guy. He knows what he is talking about and he gets his points across. I think the lads have shown they are responding well to him and we are looking forward to the rest of the season.'

Meanwhile, Ian Evatt has spoken of his relationship with Holloway and the signing of Charlie Adam.

Evatt said: 'Me and the manager are doing fine but I know I have to do the business on the pitch.

'But that's a good thing. Maybe that's the one negative with previous managers here - we pretty much knew what the team was going to be every week.

'But the new manager has his own ideas, so everybody needs to be firing on all cylinders to stay in the side.

'I think it has given everyone the kick up the backside we needed and we are working hard.

'We have had a good team spirit here but we've lost a couple of characters from last season, so bringing Charlie in will help.

'It's good to bring someone in who you know is going to improve the team.

'Everybody knows there are going to be ups and downs.

'When we have a negative result it will be important this season to come back with a positive one. If we have a run of not performing well, we need to come back bigger and stronger.'
