Longstaff Happy With Goal But Disappointed To Draw

Midfielder Scores Seventh of Season In 1-1 Draw At Bury

4 February 2018

Sean Longstaff was pleased to find the net with a stunning volley against Bury, yet disappointed not to see Blackpool come away with all three points.

The midfielder scored his seventh goal of the season to give The Seasiders the lead at Gigg Lane and admitted after the game that he had tried a similar attempt in training.  

“I hit one in training the day before and I think it hit Vass right in the chest, so I thought I’d try it again and hopefully it will go in. Luckily it did,” he said.

Deserving of winning any game, the strike was one up there with a number of his attempts already this season, however George Miller’s 83rd minute equaliser left the team settling for a point.

“Ultimately, it’s a game we should be winning when we’ve took the lead,” the on-loan Newcastle United man admitted.

“We can all do a bit of a better job to stop the goal. It comes from another long ball where we’ve really got to deal with it. We’re doing well and creating chances, but we’ve got to stop the silly mistakes that are killing us and costing us points, and stopping us from going up the table.

“There’s still a great spirit despite the recent results so we’ll just keep carrying on and hopefully turn the draws into wins, and the performances into wins.”
