Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has warned Roy Hodgson's Liverpool that his team will continue to push on for results after an impressive seven points from six outings.

As his side face Liverpool on Merseyside on Sunday, Olly has vowed to maintain an attacking mindset when the sides meet. And after his side's last gasp defeat to Blackburn, he insists a positive reaction from his players is inevitable.

"The first half performance last week was wimpy. That was my fault because I went defensive and I won't do that again. You wait until Liverpool away - that is all I am going to say," he said.

After an aggressive second half, which ended in disappointment for Blackpool with Brett Emerton's injury time winner, Holloway has admitted that his team failed to see off the visitors, but did not lack the momentum to do so.

"I might get a bit of this or a bit of that, people asking why we didn't shut up shop, but we had the momentum at our home ground," he added.

"We need to win our home games and I would be letting myself down if we didn't keep going. I thought I had done my job, as you could tell with my jumping around.

"I thought it was nothing more than we deserved - but sometimes in life you don't get what you deserve."

Nonetheless, Holloway claimed no regrets in chasing all three points, emphasising the importance of his team taking points on home soil in a bid to survive in the Premier League.
