Neil Critchley was pleased with the work rate and determined attitude of his players in the 1-0 victory over MK Dons.
The Seasiders secured a valuable three points courtesy of Sullay Kaikai’s goal to mark his return to the side after missing the past few weeks through injury.
Reflecting on the win, Critchley was pleased to claim the three points and gain a second clean sheet of the season.
“I thought defensively we were excellent throughout the game and limited them to very few chances,” he said.
“The defensive organisation and work rate of the players for the full 90 minutes was really pleasing. We could’ve done a little bit better on the ball at times, particularly in the first half on the counter attack. But the spirit, the effort and work rate of the players was excellent, and the players thoroughly deserved the win.”
Despite missing for the past few weeks through injury, Sullay Kaikai started the match and Neil Critchley was pleased the Seasider’s number ten marked his return with a goal.
“Sullay brings real quality to the side, and you know if you put him in front of goal that he is likely to score,” Critchley said.
“The ball fell well for him inside the penalty area, which is where we want him to be. His all round contribution throughout the game was excellent, even from a defensive perspective.
“We’re pleased for him and pleased to get the three points which will give us the confidence going into Tuesday’s game at AFC Wimbledon.”
