Terry McPhillips was full of praise for Nya Kirby after the midfielder impressed on his first Blackpool start in the 0-0 draw at Charlton Athletic.
Prior to Saturday's stalemate the 19-year-old had only made two brief appearances off the bench since joining the Seasiders on loan from Crystal Palace last month.
But the England Under-17 World Cup winner delivered a composed display on Saturday, earning the praise of his manager.
“I thought he was terrific," McPhillips said.
“He’s not phased, he can beat people and he’s got a great temperament.
“He passes the ball nicely, does his defending and he’ll have a fight with a big lad like he did when he came on last week.
“I like him a lot.”
