Grayson: Jordan Can Make Things Happen

Manager Challenges Midfield To Consistently Produce

30 September 2019

Simon Grayson has challenged Jordan Thompson to produce more magical moments for Blackpool on a consistent basis.

The Northern Ireland international scored a goal of individual brilliance against Lincoln City on Friday night and the manager knows that he has the quality to do more in the final third.  

“With his ability, certainly. That’s what I’d been demanding of him in training. When he gets in those areas, he needs to express himself more,” Grayson said.

“Jordan will be the first to admit that, in the last few weeks in that final third, he’s been a bit too safe. He can make things happen with his own ability.

“I asked him the question before the Lincoln game and he responded with a fantastic goal.”
