CHARLIE Adam believes Blackpool are more than capable of claiming nine points from the next three games and securing Premier League safety before the end of the month.

The skipper is never short of confidence, and he has no doubt the Seasiders can get back into the winning habit in the home games against Wigan, Newcastle and Stoke and ensure they stay in the top flight.

Adam admits he was down after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat by Arsenal. As much as he revels in sharing a pitch with the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, the Scot says the end scoreline made the match impossible to enjoy.

But the 25-year-old, who will find out this Sunday if he has won the PFA’s Player of the Year award, is confident he will be feeling more upbeat after Saturday’s crunch encounter with bottom club Wigan.

Adam said: “The next three matches are massive. They are all at home and we’ve got to take nine points from them. We will try to do that and we are capable of doing that.

“We’ve got to go out to win every game from now till the end of the season.

“I am focusing on nothing else but these next six games. In my book they are six cup finals and we are really looking forward to them.

“I can’t wait for Wigan. Our results haven’t been fantastic recently but we know we have a good group in our dressing room and we’ll be all right.

“If we win the next couple we know we’ll have pretty much done it, so that is a great incentive.

As for locking horns with the Arsenal all-stars, Adam added: “It is great to play against players like Fabregas and Jack Wilshere, but winning is all that matters and we were disappointed with the result.

“But we move on and play Wigan on Saturday. It’s a huge game for us but we will be prepared and ready, and we’ll give it everything we’ve got to get three points.

“There’s certainly no reason why we can’t do it.”
