Agard: Team will work to reward fans

Striker speaks after Blackpool trip...

13 August 2017

Kieran Agard spoke of his disappointment at not being able to repay the travelling fans for their support at Blackpool on Saturday.

Agard & Co fell to 1-0 defeat at Bloomfield Road in their first away league fixture of the new season.

He said: “We can't thank the fans enough for their support today. It's a long way to come and we're disappointed we couldn't give them a result, but we're working hard to put it right.”

The 27-year-old added: “We conceded early on and Blackpool know about us, they know we're a good team and they shut up shop. We were trying to find that equalise but it never came.

 “In the second half I think we were the better team, but it's not as good as we can be. It's only a matter of time.

“I don't think anything is missing - we're trying to the right things. It will come together. We have to do the right things and eventually it will come our way.” 

Agard, who has been operating from the right, said: “I'll play wherever the manager asks me to play, working hard and trying to scoring goals. I'm sure they're just around the corner.”

He saved a special mention for No.1 Lee Nicholls, who has impressed in the opening three outings of the 2017/18 campaign.

“Lee has kept us in the game again, but it gave us a chance to go after the equaliser. We know Lee is quality and it shows.”
