David Perkins has called on his Blackpool team-mates to stick together and drag themselves out of a relegation battle.

The midfielder hopes for a reaction ahead of tomorrow’s home game with Derby.

Perkins said: “The pressure in on. We need everyone to pull together – all the fans and everyone involved with the club. We need to win on Tuesday and hopefully go from there.

“Everyone needs to stick together and have the belief.

“The good thing is we have a game on Tuesday and it’s at home, so hopefully there will be a good crowd getting right behind us.

“I think we can beat Derby. There is nothing to fear there but we need to get on the front foot.”

Pool did miss a couple of good chances on a poor afternoon against Yeovil and Perkins feels they need to be more clinical.

He added: “When you’re on top in this league you’ve got to score. We should probably have been 1-0 up after 20 minutes.

“Yeovil came with a game plan and we’re disappointed the referee has given the penalty. That gave them hope and something to hang on to.

“We’d started OK but OK isn’t good enough at this stage. It’s a tough defeat to take.”
