Sullay Kaikai was pleased to convert one of his chances in the 4-1 Emirates FA Cup win over Morecambe on Saturday.
The 24-year-old has impressed since joining the Seasiders over the summer and was back amongst the goals again on Saturday, sealing Blackpool’s passage into the second round of this season’s Emirates FA Cup with the final of the four goals scored.
Reflecting on the win and his performance, Kaikai was relieved to finally take a chance after having several opportunities to find the back of the net during the afternoon.
“I was a bit disappointed with the couple of chances that I missed earlier in the game, but I was glad to get on the scoresheet,” he admitted.
“I felt it was a little congested and tight in the first half, but I came out in the second half and there was bit more space for me to utilise across the pitch.
“I think with the previous chances, the problem was I was rushing them a little bit, so I took my time to compose myself with the goal and ultimately I got on the scoresheet again, which is great.”
The Seasiders have now won three matches in a week, scoring nine goals in the process and Kaikai thinks there is a great fluidity in the side at the minute which stems from the work on the training ground.
“This run of wins has come at a good time,” he admitted.
“Everyone is fit and everyone is hungry, so hopefully we can keep winning.
“We’re working hard in training to find new ways to go forward and create chances. The work you put in on the training ground will dictate how you do on the pitch in a match, so we’re pleased with how it’s going at the moment.
“It’s important we use these cup victories we’ve had as fuel going back into the league, so hopefully we can do that starting with the AFC Wimbledon game on Saturday.”
