Ishmael Miller feels Saturday’s draw at Brighton shows the spirit which is growing in Blackpool’s squad.

Pool earned a 0-0 draw, having played the last 15 minutes with 10 men after defender Jeffrey Rentmeister was injured with all three substitutions already made.

And striker Miller was full of praise for his team-mates afterwards.

He said: “It was a good point for us and we could have nicked it at the end.

“We’d probably have got another chance if Jeff hadn’t gone off but we got another clean sheet, which is the main thing.

“We’re looking like becoming a team now. There’s a lot more togetherness. A lot of people have written us off after the way we started but I think we should be fine.

“We’ve got a lot of quality players in the squad but it’s about knowing each other’s game because we’ve only come together in the last couple of weeks.”

Pool had just one shot on goal, though it was a great chance which fell to Miller in the second half.

A defensive slip left the striker through on goal but keeper David Stockdale stood tall and saved well.

And Miller admits it’s a chance he should have taken.He added: “It was a big moment and the keeper pulled off a decent save.

“I’m a bit disappointed I didn’t put it away but that’s how it goes sometimes in front of goal.

“That’s how it’s going a little bit for me . The angle was narrow and the keeper made himself big. It was a good save to be fair.

“I felt confident I’d put it away, but it was a good point for us and we’ll go into the next game confident.”
