Striker On Birmingham GoalSteven Davies' second goal in as many matches was enough for three points against Birmingham City, and his relief was clear for all to see.
The striker nipped in ten minutes after the break to seal a first victory under manager Lee Clark.
It was Davies' first strike at Bloomfield Road in over a year, where his predatory instinct came through at the ideal time.
“It shows that I am a centre forward, I follow everything in,” he said. “The keeper made it easy for me, I knew he was going to jump.
“If the pitch was a little bit better it would have been tougher, but it sort of died on me and I managed to tuck it underneath him. I'm glad I'm back playing and getting the feeling of scoring a goal.
“Hopefully this can be the start of everything, we've closed that gap, which is what we've got to do to get out of this trouble.”
Now eight points from safety, Blackpool have taken another step in the right direction, but Davies insists it has to be just the start.
“There is only us in that dressing room and the supporters that think we can get out of it. We know if we keep putting in performances like we have today then we will survive.
“Teams that we're playing will look at the DVD of this game and know they won't be in for an easy game. It's going to be a tough task, but everyone in that dressing room wants to work hard Monday to Friday to put results in.
“It was a good performance, but it's only a start and it's the only way the gap is going to close,” said Davies.
