Critchley: We Allowed Them Back Into The Game
Neil Critchley couldn't hide his frustration with his side's performance in the 1-1 draw at Hull City.
The Seasiders led at half-time at the MKM Stadium through Shayne Lavery's strike, but ended the game with a point to show for their efforts, after the ten men of Hull got back into the game with a late equaliser.
"I was really angry with our second half performance," Critchley said.
"I liked us in the first half. I thought we were in control and played some good football. We scored a good goal and deserved to be in front at the interval.
"But from the first whistle in the second half, I didn't like us at all. I thought we allowed them to come back into the game. They got on top of us and got far too many crosses and corners into the box. I thought they were going to score early on in the second half if I'm honest, but we seemed to weather the storm and we came back into a little bit more.
"When they go down to ten men, we should see it out and go on and win the game, but we didn't. We've only got ourselves to blame for that. Our decision making was diabolical in the final third at times, as we had numerous opportunities to finish that game off.
"We've got to keep the ball better, we've got to make better choices. If we want to do better in this league, then we've got to win this game. Hull were there for the taking and we let them off the hook tonight. It's two points dropped."
