Goal Scorer On Cambridge Draw
Andy Taylor felt a draw was the least Blackpool deserved against Cambridge United on Saturday and was pleased with the battling spirit on show.
The left-back bent home an injury time free-kick to earn his side a share of the spoils, after The Seasiders had done everything but score at Bloomfield Road.
The visiting goalkeeper and woodwork had kept Pool at bay until that point, but Taylor was pleased with how Gary Bowyer’s side kept going until the end.
“Nobody was going to put the ball in the back of the net for us,” he said. “We needed to keep making chances and believing they were going to come.
“It wasn’t what we deserved because I think we deserved more but at least we didn’t come away with a defeat, which would have been unthinkable.
“On the plus side we showed good character and good spirit to keep going when it wasn’t quite happening and it shows what a good group we’ve got.”
The goal was Taylor’s first since his summer move from Walsall and came on a day he was deputising for Danny Pugh as captain.
“I knew it was very late on and I thought I’d whip it far ‘stantch’ because the ‘keeper sometimes takes a step the other way and fortunately it went right into the top corner.
“I was personally delighted to get my first goal, but the main thing is the team got a goal,” he added.
