Football Scores: Blackpool 2-0 Preston

Football Scores

Blackpool gave their supporters bragging rights with victory in the Lancashire Derby as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Keshi Anderson opened the scoring for the hosts in the 27th minute while Gary Madine doubled their advantage in the 68th minute. It was a first home victory over their rivals since December 1997. It was a horrid day for the visitors as they never got a hold of the game. Their captain Alan Browne was sent off in stoppage time to compound their misery.

Managers Reaction

Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “These wins are for the supporters – the three points are for them. It was an unbelievable atmosphere, it always is, but today it went up another level. The supporters will enjoy their night – and rightly so.” he added. “We’re finding different ways of winning football matches. We’ve had to battle and scrap but also play some good football in the first half. In the second half, I felt we were quite comfortable, there was not a lot in the game.”

Preston’s Frankie McAvoy: “I’m disappointed with the score. I felt the first half of Blackpool was better, but I changed our shape and we got better. We had a chat at half-time and said we needed to be a wee bit more aggressive like we were the other night against Coventry. We got our wing-backs higher up the pitch and really tried to make it as difficult as we could for them, which I felt we did on the main in the second half.”
