Dicko: Confidence Is Back

4 December 2012

Striker Glad To Be Back On The Goal Trail

Nouha Dicko was delighted to come off the bench on Saturday and see his name on the score-sheet in The Seasiders' 4-1 win over Peterborough United.

All four of the striker's goals this season have been scored after coming off the bench and Dicko is hoping that his goals can begin to catapult Blackpool back up the table.

"I scored on Saturday and that's what I wanted to do as it's been a long time since my last goal. I thought if I score it can only help the team so I am really happy with that," said Dicko.

"First of all I am happy that we got back to winning because the last four games we didn't win and it was important for us to get the confidence back and it was a great performance I think."

It was unclear from a distance whether it was Dicko or Wes Thomas who grabbed Blackpool's third on Saturday and some joked whether the Frenchman pushed his fellow forward out of the way to get the goal, to which Dicko replied: "Maybe, I don't remember!

"I just went in and wanted to score. I just ran as quick as I could and I got to the ball first. I didn't know what was happening around me."

The second-half performance was much improved from the first at London Road and Dicko paid credit to Michael Appleton for changing a few things at the interval.

"At half-time the gaffer asked us to run behind the defence and he was right and it was important for us to do it as we did really well in the second-half.

"I think it's a massive performance, even if they are 24th in the table they played really well in the first-half and we had a lot of problems in that period.

"In the second-half we did better and I think it was one of the best performances in a long time and we have to keep playing like that for the next game.

"The performance was good so the supporters were behind us. They help us a lot when they are behind us and we did it and we are happy," added Dicko.
