James Husband admits the side were pleased to get back to winning ways and continue their recent impressive home form in Tuesday’s defeat of Rochdale.
The Seasiders were pushed all the way against the visitors, but were able to hold on to the 1-0 score line to secure a sixth win from the last seven home games.
“Three points were on offer and we got all three which is always pleasing,” the defender said.
“There were times when we could have played better, the second half in particular. We weren’t at our absolute best throughout the night, but that can happen at times, especially when you have had ten days without a match.
“It’s a victory we will happily take and move on to the next game.”
Tuesday night’s match also saw the side keep another clean sheet, and shutting out one of the league’s highest scorers so far this season.
“There aren’t many teams this season that have kept Rochdale at bay, so that was a pleasing aspect,” Husband said.
“It was tough graft in the end, and we had to dig deep to hold on to the three points and keep the clean sheet intact. As a defender, to keep a clean sheet is a really pleasing factor and I think we can be pleased were we able to keep them out and secure the win.”
