Grayson: A Professional Win

Manager Reflects On Impressive Fleetwood Victory

7 December 2019

Simon Grayson was pleased with his side’s performance, following a convincing 3-1 win over Fleetwood Town.

A first Blackpool goal for Liam Feeney followed by a Sullay Kaikai strike and Armand Gnanduillet header was enough to secure the three points in a heated affair at Bloomfield Road.

“It was what you expected from a game where two teams are close together, both geographically and in the league table,” Grayson said.

“You know there’s going to be a bit of drama, quality displays and good goals and I think we were worthy winners.

“Like I said before the game, it was getting the three points that mattered. We’re pleased with today’s performance and results and we now move on to what is a big month for us.”

Liam Feeney broke the deadlock early on with a well-timed finish inside the area to score his first Blackpool goal, and Grayson was pleased he finally got off the mark.

“I said to Liam before the game that he needed to start scoring goals,” Grayson admitted.

“His assist play is good and his general play has been impressive all season, but we need our wider players to be in and around the goal scoring records this season. I’m glad he did exactly what we discussed and got on the scoresheet.

“Overall, it’s a good performance and the supporters will go home happy after a good day’s work from the team.”
