Thompson: Should Have Been Three

Midfielder Feels Performance at Scunthorpe Warranted More

20 April 2019

Jordan Thompson was disappointed not to come away from Scunthorpe United with all three points, given the Seasiders’ dominance in the encounter.

The side dictated the majority of play at Glanford Park and had numerous opportunities to break the deadlock, however that failed to materialise in more than a point. 

“I think we started off very good. In the first-half I thought we were brilliant, we moved the ball around very well and I don’t think they could get near us,” the Northern Ireland international said.

“We had a 10-minute period in the first-half when we were sloppy and maybe had too much time on the ball, but it definitely should have been three points.”

The only period of concern for the team came in the closing moments, when Christoffer Mafoumbi was forced to tip over a header from Lee Novak.

“In the last 10 minutes was probably their best spell and they threw everything at it. Our boys were getting a little tired near the end. We have to take our hats off to Chris (Mafoumbi) because that was some save at the end.”

As for Thompson, his return to the starting line-up was his first appearance from the off since mid-March. He was pretty content with how he performed.

“I’d missed out in the last couple of games and was a wee bit rusty at times, but I thought I did alright,” he added.
