McPhillips: Massive Win

Manager Pleased With Victory Against Charlton

8 December 2018

Terry McPhillips hailed a massive win as Blackpool recorded a 2-1 victory at home to Charlton Athletic.

Nathan Delfouneso’s late strike ensured that The Seasiders moved level on points with the visitors, with both sides now sitting just outside the play-off positions.

“It was a massive win for us, a great win. It was a hell of a game, I thought,” McPhillips said. “You got your money’s worth today, and I thought the win was much deserved as well.”

Having opened the scoring through Armand Gnanduillet, a goal from Joe Aribo levelled things up in the second-half, prior to Delfouneso netting in the 87th minute.  

“We’re playing one of the top teams and one of the favourites to go up automatically, so they’re always going to have a spell,” the manager admitted. “What we needed to do was get a second goal before they equalised.

“They had a spell, but then we came good again at the end, like we do.”

Blackpool picked up the victory without skipper Jay Spearing, who missed out due to a twisted ankle. Though his injury was nothing serious, it was confirmed post-match that striker Mark Cullen will be missing for another six weeks with the injury that has currently kept him sidelined.
