Potts: Must Push On From Here

30 September 2015

Goalscorer Wants More Of The Same

Brad Potts hopes Tuesday night’s victory over Chesterfield can be the catalyst for a positive run of form, both on a personal and collective level.

The midfielder fired his first Bloomfield Road goal, as Blackpool won on home soil for the first time this season. 

With another opportunity to register maximum points at home this weekend, Potts is keen for last night to be no one off. 

“There’s no point playing well and getting the result, to then slack off on Saturday, we’ve got to push on from here,” he said.

“Everyone’s delighted because it’s been a hard few days since Shrewsbury, but to perform like that in front of our home fans was great. 

“The Gaffer wanted a reaction and I think we provided it. Everyone played well and we deserved the win.”

The 21-year-old sealed the victory with a second-half strike, his second for the club, and the relief was clear to see in his celebration. 

“I saw it hit the back of the net and I was buzzing, my dad and mates were in the crowd so I ran over pointing to them.

“In the first-half I thought I should have scored and I knew the keeper was rushing out so I had to lift it up a little bit. 

“Obviously I scored at Scunthorpe, but it was nice to score at home and hopefully I can get more goals and push on,” he added.
