Bowyer’s buzzing at Daniel screamer
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.
