Lingard admits he is still learning as he goes with Blues.
He has never been a Championship regular before.
“I always try to score, or get an assist in a game. That’s my aim,’’ he told the Birmingham Mail. “In the second half they picked up on me a lot, it was hard to get on the ball.
“Even when I did get on the ball they were tight on me, sometimes two or three players.
“That’s another learning curve for me.
“Blackpool have got a strong back four. They’re big, six-foot-odd. It’s good to play against guys like that, they make you physically stronger.”
