Striker Hopes Seasiders Can Build On Performances
Nouha Dicko has finally stopped celebrating his goal last weekend and is now fully focused on tomorrow's game against Blackburn Rovers.
The 20-year-old Frenchman, currently in his second loan spell at Blackpool, grabbed a late equaliser at Crystal Palace last Saturday and sent the fans into raptures by joining them to mark the occasion.
"I've stopped running now because I would have been too tired for the next game," he joked. "I was really happy and I think people saw that. I had two friends who came from Paris to see that game so that's why I did that. It was an important goal in an important game."
Dicko believes that The Seasiders are continuing to improve and he now hopes that the players can get their home form back on a winning track against Blackburn, with the last three points at Bloomfield Road coming in September against Middlesbrough.
"Game after game we are improving and that's what we showed against Crystal Palace. It's been a long time since our last win at home and I remember it as a fantastic performance from all of the team, and I hope we can do that something like that again against Blackburn.
"I've watched them a few times this season and I think they have good players, but if we play well we can beat them. We can beat any team in the league when we play well so hopefully we can do well on Saturday. We need to start closing the gap with the teams in front of us."
The traditional Christmas period in this country isn't one that is necessarily embraced on the continent, with most other leagues holding a winter break. Dicko is looking forward to what lies ahead, however.
"I'm not used to it but I know that we have five or six games in that time. Every player will be focused because I think the gaffer will need everyone for the period. I hope that we can win as many games as we can," he added.
