Critchley: We Can Be Proud

Neil Critchley was delighted with his side's performance, and felt they deserved more than a point in the 1-1 draw with QPR.

The Seasiders were the better side throughout the match, which was broadcast live on Sky Sports, and Blackpool's Head Coach thought his side showed exactly what they are about on the cameras.

"I thought we were outstanding," he said.

"I'm really proud of the players tonight and I think the players gave a great account of themselves. We played with so much intensity and purpose, both out of possession and in possession. I thought we played some really good football and pressed them really well. 

"QPR are a really good team with some very good players. They're one of the highest scoring teams in the division, and we restricted them to next to nothing on our goal. The biggest disappointment from the night is that we haven't walked away with the three points, because I thought that performance merited it."

Reflecting on Kenny Dougall's goal that was controversially ruled out in the first half, Critchley felt the strike should have stood.

"It should have been a goal," he said.

"The ball is over the line. Gary is in an offside position when he gets a touch on it, but the ball is over the line. It's another frustrating decision that hasn't gone our way.

Despite not picking up the win, Blackpool's Head Coach was left proud of the support his side received from the fans.

"I'm absolutely delighted that the viewers on Sky have got to view what I've been saying all season.

"For me, the support we receive is the best in the country. They got behind the team once again, even when we went behind and the atmosphere was fantastic. I think we can be proud, as a Club, of how we've showcased ourselves tonight."
