Macdonald: Took My Opportunity With Both Hands

Youngster Pleased With His First League Start For Seasiders

3 November 2019

Calum Macdonald hopes he’s made a positive impression, following his glittering performance in the 4-3 win over Peterborough United on Saturday.

A brace from Armand Gnanduillet and two Peterborough own goals were the difference in the match, but it was Macdonald’s performance in his first league start for Blackpool which caught many people’s eye.

“I didn’t know I was actually starting until about 1:30 that afternoon,” Macdonald said.

“I think that’s actually a good thing at times though, because you’ve got no time to overthink it and you can just go out and play.

“Luckily for me, I got my moment against Peterborough and tried to take it with both hands, which I think I did.”

Macdonald’s performance was just one in an impressive afternoon for the Seasiders, which some are saying is their best performance of the season so far.

“We know Peterborough have good players, so we knew we’d have our work cut out against them,” Macdonald admitted.

“If we keep our shape throughout games, I feel we are as good as anyone in this league and can cause some serious problems on the counter-attack.

“I’m hopeful we can take the win and performance forward and use it to push on, and fingers crossed my individual performance has got me knocking on the door again.”
