Dougall: Full Of Confidence

21 March 2021

Kenny Dougall was pleased to get on the scoresheet and help Blackpool on their way to a fourth consecutive away league win, in Saturday’s 2-0 victory at Oxford United.

Dougall’s first-half strike, which was his first goal in English football, set the Seasiders on their way to the three points at the Kassam Stadium, with Dan Ballard making it 2-0 before the Seasiders stood firm in the second half to claim the win.

“We came for the three points, and that’s what we have managed to do,” Dougall said.

“Oxford isn’t an easy place to go, so to get the win and make it four away league wins on the bounce puts us in a good position and sets things up nicely for the final few games.

“Personally, I’m thrilled to get my first goal in England. I would have liked to have found the back of the net earlier, but had a few injury problems when I was at Barnsley, which disrupted my flow in English football, but I’m glad to put that behind me and to have scored in the game was a nice moment.

“Overall, I think the performance at Oxford was really professional and we did an impressive job. We’ve put ourselves in a good position, but there’s still lots of games to play, and we need to take it one match at a time.”
