Saturday’s match winner Gary Madine believes the Seasiders were worthy of the three points and the late goal in the 2-1 victory over Peterborough United.
Jerry Yates’ first half strike gave the Seasiders the lead at London Road, before Frankie Kent equalised for the hosts five minutes from time. Despite the setback, Neil Critchley’s men found a late winner, courtesy of Gary Madine.
“I think we were the better side and deserved the win,” he said.
“We showed really good character to get the winner after they equalised late into the game. I think the performances are now starting to pay off when they weren’t doing at the start of the season.
Despite being one of the more experienced players in the squad, the 30-year-old admits there is still nothing better than scoring a late winner.
“I love scoring goals. There’s no better feeling than when the ball hits the back of the net,” he explained.
“It was tough ten minutes from time after they equalised, as I don’t think we deserved to concede the goal. We had to dig deep and thankfully I was there to get on the end of CJ’s cross and grab the winner.
“It’s a great feeling to get the three points so late on at the side that was top of the table coming into the game. There’s a real sense of looking forward now. We’re a young side, and we’ll only get better as time goes on.”
