Jacob Greaves says he is looking forward to returning to action against Blackpool on New Year’s Day.
The Tigers were unable to fulfil their fixtures against Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield United over the festive period due to having an insufficient number of players available to choose from. Although he was left frustrated by those postponements, Greaves has now turned his attention to tomorrow’s game at Bloomfield Road.
“It should be a good game,” said Greaves.
“It’s a tough place to go. We got beat there 3-2 last season with a last-minute sucker punch so we’re going there with the bit between our teeth not wanting to get beat again.
“I’m really looking forward to the game. I feel like I haven’t had a game in ages. It’s one that I’m looking forward to and one that we can hopefully get a good result from.”
The Tigers saw their six-game unbeaten run come to an end against Nottingham Forest before Christmas. Despite that defeat, it has still been a productive few weeks for Grant McCann’s side and Greaves says they will be looking to build on that upturn in form against the Tangerines.
“We’ve found ourselves in a nice position where we’ve picked up a lot of wins in recent weeks and months,” added Greaves.
“We’re hoping to build on that and try and climb the table.
“We’ve got half of the season left and a lot of tough games coming up. We’re going to have to pick up a lot more points because other teams are picking up points.
“We’re definitely not safe or anything like that. We need to keep fighting and picking up points. Hopefully we can climb to a more comfortable position.”
