Grandin: Not Scared Of Pressure

15 April 2014

Frenchman To Revel During Run-In

Elliot Grandin has backed himself to score the crucial goals which he hopes will steer Blackpool to safety, after he re-opened his Pool account against Yeovil Town last week.

The Frenchman’s stunning strike wasn’t enough on the day, but it got him off the mark during his second stint with the club.

With four games remaining Grandin has backed himself to add to his tally for the club, which now stands at seven overall, as The Seasiders look to gain survival.

“I’m wanting to score another one to keep the club safe, but it’s pretty hard because one game you’re in, then you’re out,” said Grandin.

“As long as the team wins that is the most important thing. We’re going into games confident, if you don’t you should stop football, we’ll keep going, not feel the pressure and just play our football.”

Blackpool’s form is poor, and they now sit just two points above the relegation zone, but the midfielder has called upon the players to thrive on the pressure, rather than be hindered. 

“I know it’s hard for everybody, the fans and the players, but if we win just one it will be a big relief for everybody.

“I like it when there is pressure, we don’t have to be scared, and we just have to play our football. We definitely need to win, I know it’s hard, but we have to keep going. Altogether we’ll carry on.”
