Orlandi: We Produced Good Football

16 February 2015

Midfielder's Reaction To Forest Clash

Andrea Orlandi was impressed by some of the football Blackpool produced in Saturday's astonishing 4-4 draw with Nottingham Forest.
Disregarding the conditions, The Seasiders passed the ball around well and found the net on four occasions as a result.
Naturally the Spaniard was an integral part of the impressive display, as the sides exchanged eight goals and finished level.
“We produced good football, had a lot of chances and were the better team,” said Orlandi. “Unfortunately a lack of concentration and we ended up drawing, but we could have lost the game easily.
“When I can get on the ball I try to do my best. We've got good players on the ball like Jamie (O'Hara) and now Gary (Madine), so we can play some good football.
“Hopefully the performances will be like this from now until the end of the season and we can give the fans something to cheer about.”
Despite injuring his thigh in Saturday's game, Orlandi remained on the pitch with Lee Clark's side already down to nine men.
His attitude epitomised the team's, as David Ferguson headed home a late equaliser to conclude the drama.
“The response from the players was fantastic. At Watford we were winning 2-0 and ended up losing 7-2, but on Saturday we didn't throw the towel in.
“I thought I'd closed the game by scoring the second goal, you don't think you're going to concede four on that pitch. It was a great game to watch, but not so good to play in because I thought we had to win.
“There was so many ups and down, we eventually got one point and you never know if it will be vital,” he said.
