Bowyer’s buzzing at Daniel screamer

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Chris Spit­tles

COLIN Daniel net­ted twice to lead Black­pool to their first away win of the sea­son – with boss Gary Bowyer de­scrib­ing the winger’s first goal as a “won­der­strike”.

The Seasiders dom­i­nated against a poor Yeovil side but were let down by waste­ful fin­ish­ing un­til Daniel blasted in from lon­grange on 59 min­utes.

They then saw Ar­mand Gnan­duil­let miss a penalty but Daniel saved his team-mate’s em­bar­rass­ment by mak­ing it 2-0 just se­conds later.

Gnan­duil­let made amends with a late goal to com­plete a con­vinc­ing vic­tory for the vis­i­tors, con­sign­ing Yeovil to a fourth suc­ces­sive league de­feat.

Black­pool man­ager Bowyer said: “Colin’s first goal was an ab­so­lute won­der­strike and if he scored that in the Premier League they would be play­ing it over and over again.

“He couldn’t have hit it any bet­ter and we needed that be­cause we’d been the bet­ter side but hadn’t been able to turn our dom­i­nance into goals.

“We said at half-time to keep go­ing, keep cre­at­ing chances but just to be a bit calmer in front of goal and it worked out for us in the end.

“Of course we also missed the penalty with Ar­mand and it’s lucky for him that we won the game or he would still be fetch­ing the ball now!”

De­feat dropped Yeovil into the League Two rel­e­ga­tion zone and boss Dar­ren Way ad­mit­ted his side de­served noth­ing from the game af­ter their worst per­for­mance of the sea­son.

He said: “The man­ner of the de­feat dis­ap­pointed me and we didn’t show any hunger, de­sire or com­mit­ment out there.

“We didn’t do enough to win a foot­ball match. It wasn’t rocket science to work out how Black­pool were play­ing but we weren’t good enough to stop them.

“We couldn’t re­tain the ball and even when we did have it we didn’t show enough imag­i­na­tion to cre­ate chances to score.

“As man­ager I have to re­main con­fi­dent that things will im­prove and we will work hard this week to turn it around against Hartle­pool next Satur­day.”

Af­ter see­ing Brad Potts head wide with an open goal at his mercy, Daniel fired Black­pool ahead from 25 yards on 59 min­utes.

Then, af­ter sub Bright Osayi-Sa­muel was tripped in the box, Gnan­duil­let lifted his spot-kick over.

But se­conds later, Potts set up Daniel to make it 2-0 and then with two min­utes left, Gnan­duil­let tapped in a Potts cross.
