Simon Grayson was delighted with the character demonstrated by his squad in the 4-3 win over Peterborough United.
An Armand Gnanduillet brace and two Peterborough own goals secured an emphatic three points over the top scorers in the EFL so far this season, and a much-deserved return to winning ways for the Seasiders.
“The players were fantastic today,” Grayson said.
“The lads showed some great character throughout the game to come back from a goal down so early on and both times that Peterborough equalised.
“It was a great performance and ultimately a great three points.”
Armand Gnanduillet impressed throughout, causing real problems for the Peterborough backline. Youngster, Calum MacDonald, was also thrust into the starting XI and Grayson was delighted with their contributions.
“We asked Armand before the game to go and rustle a few feathers and show that he is a strong force in this division,” Grayson explained.
“He’s responded really well to being in and out of the team recently. He was a real handful today and never gave Peterborough’s back four a moments rest.
“As for Calum, he’s really impressed me in recent weeks and hasn’t done much wrong in training. He’s young, enthusiastic and got a great left foot on him, so we felt by adding him into the team today, that gave us a good balance.
“He really impressed me today, as did all the squad, and the aim now is take this victory forward and use it to drive us on in the coming matches.”
