Goal Scorer On Peterborough Success
Mark Cullen says Blackpool’s victory was a reward for hard work, as Neil McDonald’s men braved the conditions on their way to three impressive points.
The striker set Pool on their way in torrential conditions, smashing home the rebound after his penalty was kept out by Ben Alnwick.
He went on to be a thorn in Peterborough’s side all afternoon, typifying the effort of the whole side, as The Seasiders made it three wins on the spin.
“Every lad put their bodies on the line and it was a great performance,” he said. “The conditions didn’t faze the lads at all.
“Every team in this league has to be looking at us know, thinking we’re going to cause them trouble because the results down lie, the last three wins have been a real statement.
“It was only job half done at half-time, we had to see it through by keeping our foot on the gas. We restricted them to few chances and deserved the win.”
Without a goal since October, Cullen gobbled up the redound for his sixth of the season, and the relief was clear in his celebration.
“I hadn’t scored for a few games and it does play on your mind a little bit, but I think I’ve still brought something to the team. To get a goal so early settled everyone down.
“I honestly didn’t think the referee would give it with it being so early, but luckily I got the rebound and the lads are buzzing,” he added.
