Hughton 'bitterly disappointed'
I’ve only got the match reports to go on but the general impression I get is that we were both out-thought and out-fought by Blackpool last night, which has got to be something of a reality check in terms of our Championship aspirations.

Chris Hughton had this to say about the game:

I am bitterly disappointed, Blackpool were better than us in every department, especially in the first half.

We need to regroup quickly as we have another big game at the weekend.

We came into the game a lot more strongly after the break but over 90 minutes we were not the better side.”

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway commented as follows:

I am absolutely delighted, we set off and started to run at Newcastle and passed the ball around them.

I don’t think they realised what was hitting them. We had to draw on a lot of experience, particularly up front with Jason Euell and Brett Ormerod.

We have got to keep this going now and prove that it’s not some sort of one-off.” (more…)
