Daniels believes, as a player, there's nothing better than playing regular games - even at a time when many people will be looking forward to spending time at home with the family.

He said: “The festive period has always been strange for me, because I left home at 15. So I’ve never had that homely Christmas vibe.

“I would like to have that one day, but for me I just get my head down and look forward to Boxing Day.

“I love this period in terms of games, because I get to pick up a high volume of games.”

Blackpool will be looking to get back to winning ways at Rochdale after suffering the second of back-to-back defeats against Barnsley at the weekend.

Cameron McGeehan's second-half effort was the difference between the two sides, but Daniels felt Blackpool were unfortunate not to get something out of the game.

“It was a frustrating afternoon considering I felt we dominated the majority of the first half," the 24-year-old said.

“Obviously they’re a good team and it was a good contest first half, which was even, but I felt that we had the better chances.

“(John) O’Sullivan had a good swivel shot and we handled their threats when they came at us in the first half.

“Second half, it was still a 50-50 game but it was a frustrating afternoon with two teams going at it, but they obviously pipped us to it.”
