Ishmael Miller: Blackpool striker targets more goals

Blackpool striker Ishmael Miller hopes to go on a goalscoring run after opening his account for the club.

The 27-year-old moved to the Seasiders in the summer on an initial one-year deal and scored against his former side Middlesbrough to earn a 1-1 draw.

It was the ex-Manchester City striker's first goal in ten games, having spent last season on loan at Yeovil.

"It was good to tuck that one away, get the first one and hopefully a few more to come," said Miller.

"Obviously as a striker you go through times where they're not going to drop for you.

"It's all about getting chances - if you're getting chances you can be disappointed about not taking them."

Despite picking up a point at the Riverside Stadium, Blackpool remain bottom of the Championship having secured just three draws and no wins in their opening ten games.

It has been a turbulent start to the season, with chairman Karl Oyston speaking to other managers behind the back of boss Jose Riga, and numerous new players arriving because the club had only had eight contracted professionals two weeks before the first game.

"I feel like the lads are knowing each others' game now," Miller told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"Obviously we've never played together and the last couple of weeks you can tell that everyone's starting to learn each others' game - I really feel we'll be fine."
