Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer says the EFL must take fans into consideration when arranging the fixture list after their victory at Plymouth.Just over 100 Blackpool fans made the 640-mile round trip south to Home Park to see them win 3-1 on Tuesday.The victory was their fourth in League One and moved them up to fifth.

“We’re delighted to win, especially for the supporters. I was told 115 fans travelled but it sounded like more,” Bowyer told BBC Radio Lancashire.It is the second time in as many seasons that Blackpool have faced Plymouth away in a midweek game, with the last fixture resulting in a 3-0 win for the Tangerines in March.”To come to Plymouth on a Tuesday night again, which they did last season, is a magnificent effort for them and that went into the team talk,” Bowyer continued.”The EFL have got to have a little look at how they organise the fixtures. They have to take into consideration the football supporters.”It’s not like us, we can sit on a bus and get fed well and we checked in to a nice hotel. Morecambe were also at Yeovil and Wigan were away at Charlton. Come on, work it out.”
