Nathan Delfouneso has admitted the squad are disappointed to not be into the next round of the FA Cup at the first time of asking, after an impressive 2-2 draw at Reading has forced a replay back at Bloomfield Road.
The Seasiders were on top for large parts of the game at the Madejski Stadium, with Delfouneso and Armand Gnanduillet putting Blackpool ahead twice in the match, before being pegged back through Sam Baldock and Danny Loader.
“We’re gutted as we should be through already,” Delfouneso admitted.
“We started off slowly for the first 20 minutes or so, but I feel after we scored we became more involved in the game. Once we started to get on the ball and became more relaxed, we grew into the game and I feel for large parts of the match, you couldn’t tell which team was in the higher division.”
“Personally, I’m pleased to get back on the scoresheet. There were one or two opportunities where I feel I could have done better, but you’ve got to take the positives and I was pleased to get the goal to help the team.
“Yes, we missed the chance to go through, but we’ve got another great chance to get through to the next round with the replay back at Blackpool, which is exactly what we’ll be working towards.”
