Hall On Equaliser At Blackburn

21 February 2015

Defender's Reaction To 1-1 Draw

Grant Hall capped his return from injury by heading home Blackpool's equaliser at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.
The defender earned his side a point, and in doing so scored the Championship's 1,000th goal of the season, as the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.
Heading home Jamie O'Hara's free-kick, before playing his part in a resolute defensive performance, Grant was naturally pleased post-match.
“We dug in today. We were under pressure a lot in the second half, so it's a great result to come here and get a point,” said Hall.
“I've made the run and Clarkey has won the flick on, I tried to direct it and it didn't go exactly where I wanted it to, but it's in the back of the net which is all that counts.
“That's my first professional goal, so it means a lot to me.”
The Tottenham loanee has missed the last month with an ankle injury, but replaced the suspended Tom Aldred in the Lancashire derby, and was pleased to come through the 90 minutes unscathed.
“Towards the end we were under so much pressure and I started to feel it in my legs.
“A few of the boys have been ill this week, and even some of the boys that were playing were struggling with a couple of niggles.
“We were down to the bare bones, which is the last thing you need in a relegation fight, but it shows the spirit we've got, we dug in and got a good point.
“It's not an easy place to come, I'm delighted for the boys and the Gaffer,” said Hall.
