McPhillips: Put A Marker Down

Manager Thrilled With 4-1 Victory at Bradford

23 March 2019

Terry McPhillips felt that Blackpool put a marker down for the rest of the season with their 4-1 victory at Bradford City.

The Seasiders got back to winning ways in emphatic fashion at Valley Parade, with Armand Gnanduillet (2), Matty Virtue and Chris Taylor netting for the side.

It was a display that the manager was rightly pleased with, given that the final score was the team’s best of the season.

“The lads have set a marker down now and shown what they can do. It’s nothing that we didn’t know because we are more than capable. It was a great game to win,” McPhillips said.

“It’s really nice to get four goals for the first time this season. Obviously, I’m a bit disappointed not to keep the clean sheet at the end, but I’m getting a bit sick of clean sheets and not winning games, I just want the three points and to score a few goals.”

Special praise was reserved for striker Armand Gnanduillet, who made it 14 goals for the campaign with a brace against The Bantams.

“He can be awesome if he wants to be. He’s a student of the game and he’s obviously improved. He is listening and he’s getting better. Their lads certainly didn’t want to play against him today.”
