McMahon Heaps Praise On Miller

Skipper On Striker's Form

Tony McMahon feels Blackpool supporters can now prepare to see the best of striker Ishmael Miller.

The summer signing has got off the mark for the season and put in a Man of the Match display in his last two Pool appearances.

Seasiders skipper McMahon felt Miller was unplayable against Cardiff City last week, and is hoping it was just the start.

“That is the Ishmael Miller we've been waiting for,” he said. “It's taken him a while to hit the ground running, he is up to full fitness now and hopefully he can produce that week in week out.

“He was the difference against Cardiff, he was different class.”

The 27-year-old has featured in every match this season aside from the opening day, and was handed the Man of the Match award by Sky Sports last time out.

His captain McMahon was as impressed as anyone, and feels he will be a real asset to Blackpool this season.

“It's the difference when you've got somebody who can run in behind with the ball.

“At the end against Cardiff probably were under the cosh, they were hitting a lot of long balls into the box and we dealt with them.

“When it falls to Ishmael and he takes the ball up the field we can take a breather and get right up behind him,” said McMahon.
