Holloway keeping feet on the ground

Published Add your comment

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway was delighted with the 2-0 win over Peterborough, but refused to get carried away with his side's league position.

Jason Euell put the hosts ahead in the third minute and Hameur Bouazza added a second eight minutes later to effectively secure the points.

``We are in the top six but so what?'' Holloway said. ``It's a great position to be in (fifth) but in a marathon we have run the first hundred yards."

He added: ``I'm not worried about our position, more about who can play in our defence on Tuesday.

``If this was a first date they haven't even taken our order yet, the night might turn out to be rubbish, she might walk out on me. Who's to say what will happen?

``But I am delighted with this win because I know Peterborough are a very good side and they will get stronger.

``They stopped us playing in midfield, they pushed forward and looked like they could score at any time.

``This is why I am delighted because today was a big test and we've come out the other end smiling.''

His opposite number Darren Ferguson, however, was scathing of his side.

``We committed suicide,'' Ferguson said. ``I'm very disappointed with the result, although I'm more disappointed about the manner of the result."
