McPhillips: Brilliant Effort

Manager Thrilled With Another Victory In The Carabao Cup

25 September 2018

Terry McPhillips hailed a brilliant effort from his players to defeat QPR 2-0 and book a place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

The manager watched from the sidelines as The Seasiders extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 11 matches, courtesy of goals from Armand Gnanduillet and Jay Spearing.

Speaking post-match, here’s what the manager had to say…

Brilliant performance.

The lads were brilliant. We were disappointed Saturday first-half and that was the worst we’d been on this run that we’re on. I thought we’d get a response, we made five changes and I thought we were brilliant.  It would have been nice if we’d have got that second goal a little bit earlier but, to a man and the subs, they were brilliant.

Defensively solid again.

We’ve kept another clean sheet against a team that has made a lot of changes as well, but they’ve got some good players who have gone for big money in the past. They are a massive club in The Championship.

But I can only concentrate on our lads, I thought we were superb, it was a physical game and we kept our discipline.
