Blackpool midfielder Sullay Kaikai was delighted to net his first goal of the campaign, as the Seasiders claimed an important three points against MK Dons on Saturday.
Kaikai, who returned to the starting XI after an injury lay off, scored the decisive winner just after the hour mark to claim all three points for Neil Critchley’s side.
Reflecting on his return to the side, Kaikai was delighted to get off the mark and be back out on the pitch in Tangerine.
“It was a nice feeling to score my first goal of the season,” he said.
“It’s a really important win. We needed the three points, so it’s nice to get a clean sheet.
“It’s good for me to be back out there. It’s frustrating being on the sideline as you just want to get out there. I just wanted to help the team and I’m happy I can do that now.”
After Blackpool limited MK Dons to very few chances throughout, the 25-year-old praised the team’s performance and believes it is something the Seasiders can build on.
“The clean sheet is something to build on. The way we pressed them and won the ball back was encouraging for what we’re trying to do and how we’re trying to play.
“We’ve got a good squad with healthy competition. We just have to keep performing and giving our all week in week out.”
Ahead of a busy schedule for the Seasiders with the upcoming trip to AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday being the third fixture in seven days, Kaikai is determined to build on his goal and produce more match-winning moments.
“I’ve got a target I want to achieve this season. I want to improve on last season, so hopefully I can achieve that and help the team move up the table now.
“There’s a lot of games coming up, but we’re confident we can get some good results. Hopefully, I can get some more opportunities and build on my goal.”
