Holloway hails impressive Seasiders

Published Add your comment

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway hailed the manner of his side's 2-1 victory over high-flying Newcastle at Bloomfield Road.

The Seasiders dominated throughout the game and despite falling behind to an Andy Carroll header, they hit back and secured the points thanks to both Brett Ormerod and Jason Euell grabbing their first goals of the season.

"I am absolutely delighted, we set off and started to run at Newcastle and passed the ball around them. I don't think they realised what was hitting them," said Holloway.

"People might say they have lost a lot of big-name players since they were relegated but you only have to look at their teamsheet to realise what talent they`ve still got at the club.

"We had to draw on a lot of experience, particularly up front where I had to play both our senior pros Jason Euell and Brett Ormerod.

"They worked their socks off for me and got a goal each and you can't ask anything more than that. We`ve got to keep this going now and prove that it's not some sort of one-off."
