Critchley: Good Response To Going Behind

16 January 2021

Neil Critchley was pleased with his side’s response in going behind at the KCOM Stadium to come back and salvage a point in the 1-1 draw with Hull City.

Malik Wilks’ early second half goal was cancelled out by Jerry Yates in the final ten minutes of the match to pick up a valuable point on the road, and Critchley felt his side deserved their equaliser.

“I thought it was a really good game between two strong sides,” the Blackpool Head Coach said.

“We had to do some defending, which we did really well at times. We had one or two chances in the first half ourselves, but we said at half-time that we needed to be calmer on the ball and trust ourselves a little bit.

“I thought our response to going behind was excellent. The red card helped things for us towards the end, but I thought we were in the ascendency at that point on in the game anyway. Jerry’s making a habit of finding the back of the net from inside the penalty area, and we’re pleased for him to add another goal to his tally.”

Following the match, Critchley also confirmed Keshi Anderson will be ruled out for a few months with an injury.

“Keshi’s unfortunately picked up an injury and will be ruled out for a good few months. He’s had some surgery and we wish him all the best in his recovery.”
