We got what we deserved - Parkes

Blackpool caretaker boss Tony Parkes is confident his side can avoid the drop despite falling to a 1-0 home loss to fellow strugglers Plymouth.

The Seasiders lie in 18th place in the Coca-Cola Championship table and are five points clear of safety after Gary Sawyer headed home the only goal of the game. Charlie Adam and Brett Ormerod had goals disallowed in the second half but Parkes has demanded his players lift themselves for a derby next week.

He said: "We started very slowly and did not get into the game - we got what we deserved. We defended corners very well but gave far too many of them away. We didn't play well at all."

He added: "We have always been in the relegation mix but it would have been nice to have taken some points. We will have to look at the disallowed goals but I don't think the players had too much to argue with.

"We are disappointed but we need to get down to business as we look to local rivals Preston next week. We are still in a decent position and I'm sure we can get out of this mess."
