Football Results

Blackpool completed one of the expected football results of the weekend in the Championship as they narrowly edged out Barnsley 1-0. Newly promoted Blackpool deserved the win which took them safely away from the relegation zone with their third win in four games. The same cannot be said about Barnsley who move closer to the relegation zone as they have failed to win in their last seven outings. Their form is a far cry from their form last season which helped them to a Playoff semi-final appearance.

Managers Reaction

Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “Shayne was a real pest today – he deserved his goal. He was a real handful for the Barnsley defense and he could have scored more.” he added. “His speed of thought is amazing and he has great positional sense. He attacks spaces so well and he can be a major threat for us. He put in an excellent center-forward display.”

Barnsley’s Markus Schopp: “We did struggle in that first 45 minutes and we didn’t really deal with the most important duels well enough. It was too easy for them when we conceded the goal. It’s just not good enough, and I’ve said that before this season.” he added. “The lads know that they can do so much better, but again one single error in defense has proved very costly for us. In the Championship we know it’s a very tough league, and everybody has to learn fast. We have got a very young squad here but that’s definitely not an excuse. First of all, we have to look at the basic things we’ve not done.”
