PAUL Jewell has admitted, following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Blackpool, that his team are apt to struggle when they fall a goal behind on the road.

There was little to choose between the two teams, until a double strike from Gary Taylor-Fletcher and Barry Ferguson inside the first 16 minutes of the second half put Blackpool in complete control.

Town had some late chances, but in truth this was a comfortable win for the Seasiders.

“Any defeat is obviously disappointing, and of course I am disappointed,” explained Jewell.

“Once we go a goal behind, certainly away from home, it looks like it is going to be hard work for us to get back into the game.
