Curtis Tilt was delighted to score the decisive goal that helped Blackpool beat Bury 2-1 last night.
The defender picked a timely moment to open his account for the club, restoring The Seasiders’ lead with a 73rd minute header.
“I think it’s probably the first time I’ve gone home as the match-winner. It’s my first goal in the league and the gaffer’s been winding me up a little bit, saying that I don’t know how to celebrate. I haven’t got a celebration! But I’m so chuffed with it,” he said.
The goal ended a bit of a wait for the summer signing, who has gone close in a couple of other matches recently. Given that the manager has wanted goals from his centre-backs, Tilt will now be turning his own attentions to his defensive partner, Clark Robertson.
“They’ve been on to us that we should score more goals from set-pieces between us, so on Thursday I’ll be getting on to Clark.”
The most important thing for the defenders though is keeping efforts out at the other end, and both centre-backs had to clear balls off the line against The Shakers.
“That’s what we had to do, and Ryan has pulled off two great saves. It was just one of those nights where we all had to dig in for each other,” Tilt added.
