Redshaw Happy With Impact

19 September 2015

Forward Earns Blackpool A Point

Jack Redshaw was delighted to step off the bench and make a goalscoring impact in Blackpool's 1-1 draw with Barnsley.

The striker picked up the Man of the Match award with an impressive second-half display that saw him level the scores up with his second goal of the season.

"I was delighted to come on and get the goal that gives us a point and I think it was a good second-half performance from everyone, not just myself. We're happy with a point and we'll move on to next week," he said.

The 24-year-old livened things up alongside Kwame Thomas as a substitute at the interval, with the manager keen to change things after a disappointing first-half display.  

"First-half was difficult and I felt a bit sorry for Mark on his own. In the second-half we changed formation and took the game to them, we were a lot more positive and created a lot more chances.

Redshaw, who has been an an unused substitute in the last two games, hopes that his performance this afternoon helps him to reclaim a place in the side.

"I've come on and done well so hopefully I can be in the manager's mind for next week and hopefully appear."

Although disappointed not to score a winner with a late effort, the former Morecambe man was happy enough to see the team pick up a first point of the season at Bloomfield Road.

"That's our first point at home but I don't think the win's far away. The lads are working their socks off and we know what we've got to do to get the win. It's a new set of lads, a new team and everyone is getting to know each other still. I'm sure it will come soon," he added.
