Opposition manager Ian Holloway was delighted to see his Blackpool side maintain their pursuit of a play-off place with a tight win at home against Leeds United.
Blackpool won 1-0 thanks to a Martinez Angel goal with just eleven minutes remaining and Holloway admitted that Leeds made it tough for his Blackpool side.
‘I’m absolutely delighted, I’m on top of the world.
‘That was as tough a game as you’ll ever have, as tense a game as you’ll ever have and I thought Leeds came here and made it really difficult.
‘Yet we managed to attack with lots of excitement – some of my young lads running with it and Lua (Lomana LuaLua) twisting and turning.
‘They had a good spell at the start of the second half, but we managed to keep our minds in the game, me included – not screaming and shouting at any decision.
‘We showed a lot of belief when we needed to. I’m very, very pleased with everybody concerned.’
The win for Blackpool keeps them in fifth place in the championship, four points above Middlesbrough in seventh place with just two games remaining and they could clinch their place in the play-offs with a win over Lancashire rivals Burnley on Saturday.
The defeat for Leeds leaves them in twelfth place after losing their eighteenth game of the season.
