Nathan Delfouneso says Blackpool’s performance at Peterborough United on Saturday proved that the team can more than match it with the top sides in the division.
The Seasiders extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 12 matches following the 2-2 draw at The ABAX Stadium, with the hosts having scored the most goals in the division and having sat top of the table prior to kick-off.
“It’s a credit to the boys, we put a lot of effort in against a team that was top of the league and more than matched them all the way throughout the whole game. You could say that we might be disappointed not to get the three points as well,” Delfouneso said.
“For the neutral, it was probably a very good spectacle – some really good goals, some good chances and some good football being played out there. Hopefully everybody went home happy, though on the playing side exhausted as well.”
Delfouneso, who set-up Armand Gnanduillet for Blackpool’s first goal, hit a great strike to level the scores up again in the encounter and was pleased to make amends for an opportunity that went begging in the first-half.
“I know myself that I should have put that one away – I got it all wrong to be honest with you. Thankfully the other one went flying into the top corner and I managed to help us get a point,” he added.
