Miller: The Togetherness Showed

21 September 2014

Striker's Brighton Reaction

Ishmael Miller felt Blackpool's togetherness helped pull them through and claim a hard-earned point at Brighton on Saturday.

The striker played the full 90 minutes of Pool's goalless draw at The Amex, as José Riga's side registered their second point of the season.

The Seasiders were forced to play the closing stages with ten men and it was a real team effort, according to Miller.

“I feel like the team are really fighting for each other at this moment in time,” he said. “We're looking like becoming a team now, there's a lot more togetherness.

“It was a good point. We could have nicked it at the end to be fair, as we'd have probably got another chance if Jeff didn't go off injured."

The striker is yet to score in a Blackpool shirt, and hasn't had many better chances than the one he squandered in the second half at The Amex.

Capitalising on a defensive slip, Miller was foiled by home stopper David Stockdale, as the wait goes on.

“There was the chance I had and the keeper pulled off a decent save. I'm a bit disappointed I didn't put it away, but that's how it goes sometimes in front of net.

“The angle was a bit narrow, the keeper made himself big and made a good save to be fair. I felt confident I'd put it away, but obviously we'll go into the next game confident,” he said.

Miller will look to get off the mark against Norwich next week, having put in a big shift at The Amex on Saturday.
