Manager Bemoans Winning Goal

Manager Disappointed That Peterborough Strike Stood

13 April 2019

Terry McPhillips bemoaned a hand ball in the build up to Peterborough’s winner, as Blackpool lost 1-0 at Bloomfield Road.

The manager felt that luck was against his side in the game, with Marcus Maddison’s 43rd minute strike allowed to stand.

“The first goal’s massive, isn’t it? The pitch is really difficult to play on, and I thought it was hand ball – their lad controlled it with his hand at the start of the move for the goal,” he said.

“We’re not getting any luck, that’s for sure. I’m really disappointed that we haven’t won at Bloomfield Road again.”

Given some of the late fight backs in recent weeks on home soil, there was still an expectancy that something could be salvaged from the match, however that never proved the case.

We’re still clipping it into their box, putting them under pressure and throwing it in there, so you always fancy us for a late goal because we do get them. I don’t suppose you’re going to do that every game, though.

“We now have to put that one to bed and concentrate on Scunthorpe,” he added.
