Riga: The First Step

13 September 2014

José Reflects On Wolves Point

José Riga says Blackpool's point against Wolves is the first step to better things for his side.

The manager was full of pride following his first positive result in charge of The Seasiders, which also brought about a clean sheet.

"The main thing for me, first of all, is to get the clean sheet that we were looking for and it is important for me to get a result at home. The fans and the atmosphere was incredible and it helped us a lot," he said.

"The way the team and players behaved and the global commitment between the staff, players and fans was a great moment. It is only the first step but maybe the first foundations. I'm very proud of them."

Second-half opportunities for Tony McMahon and Nile Ranger could have brought greater success, yet it still didn't detract from the best performance to date.  

"The first one at Nottingham Forest was also good but we conceded two goals in five minutes and maybe didn't create enough opportunities. In terms of result, for sure this is the best."

The important thing now is to build on the point when Watford come to Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night, with Riga looking to get even more from the players. 

"We need more to be really competitive all season but we have enough games to show that we can survive in this competition, even if it is a tough one," he added.
