Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final: Bowyer, Tisdale, Cullen, Reid

27 May 2017

Blackpool and Exeter City are set to battle it out in the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final, and here's what the managers and players have had to say ahead of Sunday’s showpiece.

You can watch the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final on Sunday 28th May live on Sky Sports, with kick-off at 3pm. 

Gary Bowyer - Blackpool manager

“This is the worst bit of the job when you're having to pull people and tell them they're not playing, or leaving them out of the squad. Because of what's at stake this weekend, it'll be even harder. 

"It's about being honest with people and making the best selection that you see fit for the team. It's a squad game and that's what we've spoken about all season"

Paul Tisdale - Exeter City manager 

“It’s such an important game but such a wonderful venue to play at. Everyone’s excited but we’ve got to get the balance right between the excitement of it all and winning a game of football. 

“You can take nothing for granted. You come through a semi-final and you’re as high as a kite, but you’ve still got one more game to go. I just urge the players to make the very most of it.” 

Mark Cullen - Blackpool striker

“We haven’t achieved anything yet and we’ll be looking to complete the job. There’s a lot riding on it but the lads are focused on the job in hand. 

“You don’t get anything for getting to Wembley. You want to go there, play well and get promoted.”

Reuben Reid - Exeter City striker

“I’m quite laid-back in nature, and I’m pretty calm. If I see anyone not being themselves, I’ll try and have a word and say ‘forget where we are, you’ve been doing it all season, just play your football.’ 

“It’s a game with a lot of things at stake, but I’m trying to get my brain away from the fact it’s a big day out. It’s simply a game that we’ve got to go out and perform. It’s promotion or League Two.”
