On-loan Wolves loanee Connor Ronan lavished with praise by Blackpool's caretaker boss David Dunn
Caretaker boss David Dunn has lavished praise on Blackpool’s Premier League loanee star Connor Ronan.
The on-loan Wolves man produced another sterling display for the Seasiders in Tuesday night’s dramatic late 2-1 win against rivals Bolton Wanderers.
The 21-year-old, who combined superbly alongside fellow loanee Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, scored Pool’s first goal of the night with his debut strike for the club.

It was a marvellous way to open his account too, the midfielder slamming home a thunderbolt from 30 yards.
Ronan earned the praise of David Dunn afterwards, who admitted he would have been proud of his long-range wonder strike.
“It was good, so I was pleased for him,” Dunn said.
“I’d have taken a three-yard deflection to be fair, but it’s always nice when those go in.
“I thought he caught it extremely well, so I’m pleased for the kid he’s got his first goal for the club and hopefully there’s more to come.
“I thought he was excellent last week at AFC Wimbledon as well, he’s got such a good touch. He makes things happen for us.
“If there’s one thing we’ve been saying it’s ‘can he get more assists?’ and ‘can he get more goals?’
“In the last couple of weeks he could have had a couple more assists if we had finished them off.
“He got one at Bristol Rovers and then he gets his goal in this one, so I’m pleased for him, as I am for Kiernan as well to get the winner.”
