Bowyer: Very Good Performance

12 November 2016

Manager On 4-0 Victory

Gary Bowyer was pleased with a display that led from the front, as Blackpool recorded a 4-0 victory against Notts County. 

Forward Kyle Vassell added another brace to his tally for the season, while strike partner Jamille Matt and Colin Daniel were also on target. 

Speaking post-match, here's what the manager had to say...

A satisfying performance. 

It was a very good performance from us, and I still felt there was areas that we could be improving on and we'll certainly work on that during the course of next week. 

But to score four goals at home and keep a clean sheet against a side that started the day in the play-offs was particularly pleasing. 

Now five games unbeaten and team coming together. 

We're not going to get carried away at all but, like we've been saying previously, you have to be sensible about this, it takes time. Things take time to build and we've said that. We're far from the finished article at all so we've got to keep building on this. 

Leading from the front. 

I think the front two were a handful. We've spoken about them before, but I thought today they were a real threat. I'm delighted for them. 

I think you saw a massive, great strength of character from Jamille Matt because obviously at 1-0 he's rounded the goalkeeper and missed that one, and he could have gone under. He didn't, and that shows the character that he's got and the character of the team because they really rallied around him. 

10 goals now for Kyle Vassell. 

Anybody that gets double figures at this stage of the season has done well. We want more from him, and I think there's more to come from him as well. He can only keep getting better. We forget how young he is - he plays the game so aggressively that you think he's been around the game for a long time. He's still only a young lad. 

Important clean sheet. 

We attack as a team and we defend as a team. It's an old cliche but it's true, that's what we want and we want more of them.
