Michael Nottingham was pleased to play his part in helping Blackpool book a place in the second round of the Carabao Cup last night.

The defender, a summer signing from Salford City, scored his first goal for the club against Barnsley and helped spark a comeback at Bloomfield Road, with The Seasiders eventually running out 3-1 winners.

“I’m happy to get through and very happy to get my goal and pitch in, as well as very happy to get 90 minutes. I want to back it up and give myself a chance to play on Saturday, hopefully,” the right-back said.

Nottingham was one of eight changes to the side for the fixture, and he felt that a few tactical readjustments at half-time helped the team to push on.  

“I think it took us the half to get going but we came in, reassessed a few things and readdressed it at half-time. We sorted the small problems, tweaked little thinks and I think we were good in the second-half and deserved to win.”

The victory was Blackpool’s first of the season and now provides a strong platform ahead of the weekend’s league game at Shrewsbury.

“It was important to try and get the win and get the momentum to turn things around. It gives us a bit more belief for Saturday now. We’ll go away to Shrewsbury and try and get the three points there,” he added.
