Sammie Szmodics scored a brace to help Peterborough produce one of the high-scoring football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Jonson Clarke-Harris opened the scoring in the 36th minute before Szomodics scored two goals eight minutes from each other. Jack Marriott made it four in the 85th minute before Jack Taylor rounded off the scoring in the 89th minute. The result meant that Blackpool finishes the season in 16th place while Peterborough finish in 22nd place.
Peterborough’s Grant McCann: “We’ve been working on that, just the reaction from when we lose the ball – I thought we were good on that today. I thought we were on the front foot in everything we did, we limited them to very few opportunities on our goal and hopefully, we can take that, moving forward. Today was about sending the fans home happy with a little bit of positivity. That today, was for them. I felt a little bit embarrassed, a little bit ashamed walking around at the end. We’ve shown our appreciation to the fans but it just didn’t feel right, so hopefully next season we can walk around with a different sort of feeling.”
Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “Not like us at all. We saved our worst performance until the last game of the season. We were miles off it today, just miles off it, not good enough all over the pitch in possession or out of possession, defending the goal, the goals we gave away, we didn’t look like scoring. We just weren’t good enough. That’s the first time in my two years here that I question the appetite and the application of the players. It’ll leave a bitter taste in the mouth over the next six weeks before we start back for pre-season, but I also have to have some perspective as well.”
