Grayson: An Important Win

Manager Pleased With Dominant Win

16 November 2019

Simon Grayson was pleased with his Blackpool side’s dominant display in the 2-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon.

Armand Gnanduillet’s second half brace was enough to secure the points to secure four consecutive wins and take Blackpool up to fifth in the league table.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game and it would be hard to break them down,” Grayson said.

“I thought we were decent in the first half but just lacked that cutting edge and needed to make one or two better decisions in the final third.

“We carried that out well in the second half and secured another good win.”

With Armand Gnanduillet on the scoresheet yet again, Grayson felt his performances of late have been exemplary.

“I thought he was a real handful in the game,” he said.

“I know strikers get judged on their goals scored, but he’s been fantastic in his hold-up play recently. When he does that, he gives us a base to build from and he can get the ball to other players to create other chances for him.

“To score another two goals shows the work he’s been doing in training is paying off, and we’re really pleased to see him up there in the score charts.”
