Critchley: A Hard Fought Victory

3 November 2020

Neil Critchley was left pleased with his side's defensive capabilities to see out the victory in the Seasiders 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic.

Sullay Kaikai’s goal early in the second half was enough to secure the victory to make it back-to-back league wins for the first time this season. Reflecting on the win, Critchley believed the side worked really hard to secure the three points.

“We had to work at it throughout the match. We defended well throughout and produced one moment of quality which won us the game,” Critchley said.

“There were other moments where we maybe could have put the game to bed, but we didn’t do that, so that is something to look back and work on.

“I thought we defended really well as a team from start to finish. We don’t conceded too many chances and that’s because of the work we do on the training pitch and in the games.

"Ultimately, we got the three points and the clean sheet, so full credit to the lads tonight.”
