NEIL CRITCH­LEY was full of praise for Jerry Yates af­ter he scored his first goals for Black­pool.

The sum­mer sign­ing from Rother­ham broke his duck at the 12th at­tempt as the Seasiders won away from home for the first time this sea­son.

Yates net­ted the win­ner from the penalty spot af­ter Daniel Gre­tars­son’s own goal had can­celled out the striker’s first-half opener. Critch­ley said: “I am de­lighted for him be­cause he an in­fec­tious per­son­al­ity.

“He brings great en­ergy to the train­ing ground. I love him, the staff love him, the play­ers love him.”

Bur­ton boss Jake Bux­ton cut a frus­trated fig­ure as his side’s win­less league run stretched to eight games.

He said: “We are dis­ap­pointed. We have spo­ken about how if your per­for­mances are cor­rect the re­sults will come. We didn’t put it to­gether.”
