Dawson disappointed with Blackpool defeat

Tottenham centre-back Michael Dawson has revealed his disappointment with their 3-1 defeat away to Blackpool on Tuesday night.

Spurs created plenty of goalscoring chances, and incurred the wrath of boss Harry Redknapp for not converting enough, their solitary goal coming in the 93rd minute thanks to a deflected Roman Pavlyuchenko strike. However, it was their defensive failings that led to the defeat, being beaten on the counter-attack on many occassions.

Dawson told the club’s official website: “We are bitterly disappointed with the goals we gave away and obviously not putting a few in the back of the net at the other end.

“The first one was a penalty and with the second we were on the attack and they broke away. It is normally us doing that to teams but they did it to us.

“We’ve got ten days now to think about it and as players you look at performances and results – but we’ve got to move on. It was a disappointing night, but credit to Blackpool.”

The team will now travel to Dubai for warm weather training ahead of the game away to Wolves on 6th March.
