The Seasiders head into today’s game against Scunthorpe United with nothing left to play for in terms of the promotion and relegation pictures.

“But you’ve just got to put it behind you and concentrate on the next four games, the next game being the main one.

“We want to finish as high as we can and we know we’re capable of doing that.

“As players it’s a target to build on for next year as well. Wherever you finish, you always want to finish the year after.

“We want to make a marker and see what can happen next season.”

Blackpool take on a Scunthorpe side that are just one point above the drop zone but one of several clubs still fighting for their League One status.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Heneghan added. “It’s very tight down the bottom and people are fighting for their lives.

“We’ve just got to be on our game, and when we play to our strengths, we know we’re a good side. So we’ve just got to get back to that.

“As long as we get our tactics and everything right and as players we perform right on the day, it should take care of things.”
