Keshi Anderson helped Blackpool secure a crucial win in one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. The home side dominated the game and had better chances but could not find a way to put the ball in the back of the net. Blackpool was unchanged from their last game and was rewarded for their defensive performance when Anderson scored in the 76th minute. Sheffield continued their disappointing run despite bringing in Morgan Gibbs-White for the suspended Oli McBurnie.
Sheffield United’s Slavisa Jokanovic: “We’re disappointed. We played good football and created a lot of chances and, after one big mistake, we conceded a goal. Our reaction after the goal was poor. We didn’t have enough power to change our story and it was unacceptable. I don’t remember them creating something before the goal. We didn’t play badly. I can’t give an explanation of how we lost the game. Today was a really good chance for us and I felt we played better than Blackpool. It’s not easy because people inside the stadium aren’t satisfied, of course.”
Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “I suppose 1-0, when you keep a clean sheet and you score a goal as we’ve scored, you have to say it was [a perfect away performance]. We knew we were facing a very good team today and a lot of the Sheffield United supporters will go home unhappy, but I’ve got no doubt this Sheffield team if they keep playing the way they are, will be up there at the end of the season.”
