NEW DI­VI­SION IS GOOD FIT - CLARK

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW - By Kather­ine Bett

CLARK Robert­son be­lieves the style of League One foot­ball will suit Black­pool well through­out this sea­son.

The Seasiders won pro­mo­tion back to the third tier in May af­ter beat­ing Ex­eter City 2-1 in the play-off fi­nal at Wem­b­ley.

Left-back Robert­son, 23, is now in his third sea­son with the club and re­mem­bers what League One games are like from the 2015-16 cam­paign.

“There’s more foot­ball played which suits our team,” the de­fender said. “League Two is more phys­i­cal, but the foot­ballers we have in this squad will suit the league go­ing for­ward.

“We don’t want to come up and just make up the numbers, we want to have a right good go in ev­ery game and try to get as high up in the ta­ble as pos­si­ble.” The Seasiders won 39 points at Bloom­field Road last sea­son, and Robert­son is adamant con­tin­u­ing that kind of record will be vi­tal.

“I think we’ve got a bet­ter squad this time around, we maybe weren’t pre­pared for League One last time around, and those lads will be more pre­pared now with two sea­sons un­der their belts,” he added.

“We did have a de­cent home record last sea­son and we’ll be look­ing to carry that into this sea­son.”
