O'Dea: Keeping A Level Head

3 February 2015

Defender's Thoughts On Recent Win

Darren O'Dea believes the Blackpool ship has been steadied after three points over Brighton on Saturday.
 
The Seasiders returned to winning ways and kept a clean sheet in the process, making it a proud home dressing room come full time.
 
Determined to ensure the positive result is followed up with another, O'Dea hopes it's just the start.
 
“It's the challenge of football. We went from being on the floor at Watford to picking up three crucial points,” said O'Dea.
 
“Watford was well talked about, and we certainly didn't just brush over it, so to get a clean sheet is fantastic and the position we're in we need to win games as well.
 
“In this league it's very important to keep a level head. We need to match that next week with a positive performance and result.”
 
The defender was making his eighth appearance for the club, and played the full 90 minutes to help Lee Clark's side to a clean sheet.
 
“Obviously everyone was hurting, but as defenders you probably hurt a bit more. It's our job to stop goals, so to keep a clean sheet gave us pride.
 
“In a weird way it's brought us together a little bit, we need each other. Teams can sink or swim, but this team has a bunch of lads with big characters, and we certainly showed that.
 
“Hopefully we can steady the ship and put a few wins together,” said O'Dea.
