Blackpool Match Reaction

Blackpool Match Reaction

Kenny Jackett said he thought his side had ''done it and produced a real smash and grab performance'' after his side conceded a 83rd minute equaliser to get a point at Bloomfield Road.

Swansea were hardly in the game that Blackpool dominated in terms of chances created, but a 21st minute own goal looked to have won it for us but substitute Vernon got a deserved equaliser for the home side.

Jackett added: 'We had been under the cosh early on, scored from a rare attack and then had to really dig deep and defend well.

'This is an intimidating place to come and the crowd really get behind them and the challenges were flying in.

'But it was a good game rather than a dirty one. We had our backs to the wall for long periods but still looked dangerous on the break.

'It was the sort of point we needed after a disappointing performance at Brighton in midweek. We have some big games coming up at home in the next couple of weeks and I think we are in a pretty good position to maintain a play-off challenge.'


Former Swan Adrian Forbes showed his bitterness towards Kenny Jackett before the game and said afterwards: 'It was a cracking game for the neutral - real end-to-end stuff - but we were relieved to get that equaliser.'

'I think we were the stronger team on the day, but we had to show the character to keep going for that goal after putting them under so much pressure with no reward.'

'It's very tight at the top of the table with everyone capable of beating each other.'

'We have to set our stall out and maintain our form to stay up there.''


Leon Britton though said of his dissapointment with the lack of service to the strikers, he said: 'There's a big responsibility on the strikers, but the service coming through to them wasn't great,'

'We really battled for that point, though, and it's not a bad result away at Blackpool.

'The back four did really well all game, they were strong and stood up to everything that was thrown at us.

'Our goal did come against the run of play. Alan Tate's trying to claim it, but he's getting some stick for that! I'm pretty sure it was an own goal.'


We face another side hoping to get into the play-offs this season as Carlisle arrive at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

They currently sit in 9th place, 1 point ahead of 11th placed Blackpool and 2 points behind us.

They lost at home to Scunthorpe yesterday so they'll be wanting to put things right next weekend.
