Gary Bowyer hailed a ‘fantastic team performance’ as Blackpool recorded a 2-0 victory at league leaders Wigan Athletic.
The Seasiders put in a disciplined and organised display at the DW Stadium and got their rewards courtesy of goals from Armand Gnanduillet and Kelvin Mellor.
“It was an unbelievable effort. I’ve nothing but praise for them, they’ve thoroughly deserved it tonight,” Bowyer said.
“From what they’ve had to go through in the last couple of months, they’ve stuck at it, stuck together and kept working ever so hard. You get your rewards in the end. It was a fabulous team performance.
“They’ve had to contend with everything that Wigan have thrown at them tonight and stood up to it. We’ve now got to enjoy tonight and then try to back it up on Sunday.”
