Critchley: We Were Outstanding

Head Coach Reflect's On Dramatic Late Victory Against Peterborough United.

21 November 2020

Blackpool Head Coach Neil Critchley lavished praise on his players, after the Seasiders picked up their fifth consecutive victory in all competitions with a 2-1 victory against Peterborough United.

Gary Madine’s late winner grabbed Blackpool all three points in dramatic fashion, after Jerry Yates’ opener was cancelled out by Frankie Kent’s late equaliser.

Reflecting on another three points, Critchley was delighted with the performance of his players and believed Blackpool's performance merited three points.

“I’d have to say over the 90 minutes, we were the deserved winners of the game. I thought we were excellent throughout.

“It was a terrific performance from us and that should give us a lot belief coming to a place like this and winning,” he added. “I thought the whole team were outstanding.”

Critchley also praised his side’s endeavour after they snatched the three points in dramatic style in the last minute of normal time.

"The lads responded really well. We went down the other end and got the winner that our performance merited.

“There’s a lot of spirit and a good atmosphere amongst the group in training. The players have given me everything all season.

Blackpool’s Head Coach was also delighted for his two strikers Jerry Yates and Gary Madine, after the pair put their names on the scoresheet once again and were a constant threat throughout at the Weston Homes Stadium.

“Jerry took his goal really well. It was a proper centre-forward’s goal in the way that he engineered that little bit of space for himself.

“Gary led the line brilliantly well on his own at the end. When it came to him, it was a lovely touch and luckily, he managed to dig it out and slot it past the goalkeeper to win to the game,” Critchley added.
