Orlandi Pleased With Goal

12 April 2015

Midfielder's Ipswich Reaction

Andrea Orlandi made a number of telling contributions during Blackpool's defeat at Ipswich Town, most notably netting after four minutes, much to the Spaniard's delight.

His tidy finish completed a fine Blackpool move at Portman Road, and despite The Seasiders falling to their first defeat in four matches, Orlandi was pleased to get himself on the scoresheet. 

“It's always good to score goals, but it didn't help us win the game,” said Orlandi. “It was a good ball from Henry (Cameron), I was in a good position and was pleased with the finish.

“Unfortunately we're not a team which has created many chances and scored many goals, but still I've been able to do my bit and hopefully I can do more in the last four games.”

The 30-year-old's error gifted the hosts a route back into the contest on Saturday, before he popped up again to play a telling part in Henry Cameron's goal.

“We've been trying to play a bit quicker and be positive in the last few games. It worked today, young Henry was able to score a goal and I'm happy for him.”

Meanwhile Orlandi believes he's showed glimpses of his best form since the turn of the year, and has enjoyed pulling on the tangerine shirt, despite the current situation.

“I had a difficult start to the season after I didn't have a pre-season. It was Rotherham at home when the Gaffer put me in and I played well, and I've been playing and playing well since.

“I've played at this level for a long time and I think I can contribute in a good way,” he added.
