Bowyer: Best Performance of Season

7 March 2017

Manager Delighted With Victory At Plymouth

Gary Bowyer hailed Blackpool's 3-0 victory at Plymouth Argyle as the best performance of the season. 

Goals from Mark Cullen, Brad Potts and Jordan Flores ensured The Seasiders backed up Saturday's win against Morecambe, with the overall display drawing great praise.

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

Best performance. 

Without doubt it's our best performance of the season. Going into the game they're second in the league and we knew the challenge that lay ahead for us. To a man we were outstanding tonight.

Measured and controlled in possession.  

I think we started the game very well, the pitch helped obviously with the style of play we want to play and how we want to play. We made a little bit of a tactical game-plan for Plymouth and it worked for us, especially in the first-half. They then had to change their shape, which is a credit to our lads. 

The decision making and playing the conditions - it's not stopped raining the whole game - we've made some great decisions tonight.

The clean sheet.   

In the last minute, when there's a corner, I wouldn't have probably been as happy as I am now if they'd have scored because we really wanted that. To come away from home, play the way that we have - and we should have had two penalties as well by the way - it's a complete performance away from home.

127 fans in fine voice.  

I'm absolutely delighted for those supporters, that is an unbelievable effort from them. I can't thank them enough and that's why we made the case of everybody going over there and thanking them. That effort that they made was matched by the players, which is something we spoke about at the hotel before the game. 

Standard set. 

They can enjoy tonight but we've got another difficult game on Saturday and that's now our standard. That's what we've got to go and produce.
