McPhillips: Some Effort From The Lads

Interim Manager Praises Side Following Comeback

8 September 2018

Terry McPhillips couldn’t hide his delight after watching his Blackpool side fight back from two goals down to win 3-2 against Bradford City.

Despite dominating for large parts, The Seasiders found themselves up against it with time running out, yet the character shone through in a period that saw three goals scored in six minutes.

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

Fantastic effort.

It was some game and some effort from the lads. I thought we were the better team by a distance in the first-half, but again we’ve not taken those chances and their goalie played well. To go 2-0 down is a body blow, but to come back how we did, with the physical effort, the determination, the willpower and the quality was there for all to see. I’m just delighted to get the three points.

First goals for Spearing.

Jay will take the responsibility on, and he did. What a captain he’s been for us this season in Jimmy’s absence.

Tilt makes amends with the winner.

It was almost like he was going to redeem himself by sticking himself up front and running round like a gazelle to score the winner, and he did.
