Gosling: An Important Win

2 December 2013

The Newcastle loanee discusses his thoughts after Saturday's win

Dan Gosling was pleased Blackpool got back to winning ways at the weekend as they overcame Sheffield Wednesday.

An early goal from Ricardo Fuller gave The Seasiders the perfect start, with Gosling adding a second after the break as the hosts ran out comfortable winners.

"It was a great win first and foremost. It was disappointing not to take all three points at Birmingham last week so it was important we got back to winning ways and it was a bonus getting a clean sheet," said Gosling.

"It was very scrappy in the first-half. They came here playing 4-5-1 and had big men in the middle, so it was hard for us to dictate the tempo of the game and get the ball down.

"It's just about taking our chances when they come, and we didn't do that before we got the second goal today, but it was enough for us to get the three points.

"The fans got a bit on edge and I think that reflected on the players as well. But in the second half we came out and passed the ball a lot better and our quality showed, and we were rewarded for that."

The Newcastle loanee netted his second goal in tangerine colours as he put in another impressive display in front of the home faithful, and says he is well on the way to getting back to his best ahead of a nine-hour round trip to Yeovil tomorrow night.

"Every week I feel like I'm getting better and better and it was great to chip in with another goal again today.

"There was a few shock results at the weekend and that's what happens when you don't turn up - you get turned over. That happened to us the last time we were at home against Ipswich, we were below par and lost the game.

"We have to go to Yeovil and produce another professional display if we want to take maximum points from the game, as they will be full of confidence after a great win at Watford," added Gosling.
