Miller: First Of Many

1 October 2014

Striker On First Blackpoool Goal

Ishmael Miller says he never lost confidence in his ability to score goals for Blackpool.

The striker converted Joan Oriol's cross at Middlesbrough on Tuesday, his first goal for the club.

It was enough to earn a point against his old side, and will hopefully now be the catalyst, says Miller.

“It was good to tuck that one away, get the first for the club, and hopefully a few more will come,” he said.

“As  a striker you go through times when it doesn't drop for you, but it was all about getting chances and then you can be disappointed about not taking them.

“I'm a striker, I've always got chances and hopefully the next game I'll get another one, but the main thing is another good result.”

Miller's equaliser at The Riverside Stadium was the perfect response to falling behind, and highlighted the growing character in the camp.

Both defending firmly and attacking with pace, it was hopefully a sign of things to come for the Blackpool supporters to enjoy.

“We knew Boro were going to pass it around being on great form recently, so we had to grind it out and the togetherness of the lads was brilliant.

“It's took us a while to get going with fitness, but hopefully when we get going other clubs will be on the decline. Things are promising after a few good performances.

“Boro didn't really cut us open apart from the goal, I can't really remember another chance they had. It's another good result, and hopefully we'll go into Friday with a bit more confidence,” said Miller.
