Blackpool dealt yet another blow to West Brom’s promotion hopes as they held them to one of the goalless football scores of the weekend in the Championship. West Brom dominated the game but could not find the goal despite creating a number of chances. The draw meant that West Brom have failed to win away from home for the last couple of months. Blackpool has now gone unbeaten in their last three games to improve their playoff chances.
Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “I thought it was a really good game, it was an entertaining 0-0. Both teams contributed towards that.” he added. “We started really well in the game, on the front foot, and took the game to them. We played with real energy and had some big moments in the game. Not necessarily big changes, but big moments which could have led to chances. We failed a little bit, but you know with the way they play – and the physicality they have in the team – that at some point they might get on top of you.”
West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “I think it was a great response from Saturday. The performance was exactly what we want to be.” he added. “Aggressive. Plenty of desire. A strong mentality. Intensity. It was a tough away game and we can take a lot of positives. We need to take what we can get at the minute and getting a clean sheet is a positive. We created a lot of chances, but compared to last Saturday, this time there were more real chances to score. At the minute it’s the final ball, and we need to work on that.”
