Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer says in-form striker Armand Gnanduillet will "only get better".

The Frenchman has made a promising start to life at Bloomfield Road having netted his third goal in as many games last weekend.

The 24-year-old, who signed from Leyton Orient in the summer, will be hoping to extend his scoring run at Crewe on Saturday.

"It's three in three now for him and he's forming a decent partnership with Kyle Vassell," Bowyer said.

"He's been a handful and he's only going to get better because when he arrived he was short on game time. He's proving what a valuable asset he can be."

Blackpool lead the way for the most shots in the EFL this season, yet have only scored 11 goals in eight league games.

"The next bit for us is to make sure that we're clinical," Bowyer added. "I would be probably more concerned if we weren't creating chances. It just shows you the type of football that we're trying to play."

The Seasiders have bagged four goals in the last two games yet have only come home with one points from their games with Colchester and Carlisle.

Bowyer said: "We've scored two in each game and you generally want more than just the point we got on Saturday out of that return.

"That's something we've spoken about with the players this week, but the pleasing thing is their attitude and confidence in how they're going about playing and how much they want to put it right, for the supporters as well as themselves."
