Neil Critchley lays down challenge to Dan Ballard after Arsenal loanee scores his first Blackpool goal
Neil Critchley has challenged Blackpool defender Dan Ballard to score more goals from set-pieces.
It comes after the Arsenal loanee netted his first goal for the Seasiders in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw against Crewe Alexandra.
The 21-year-old met Luke Garbutt’s corner at the near post to head past Dave Richards to give Blackpool a first-half lead.
“It was a terrific delivery from Garbs,” Critchley said.
“It’s something we’ve been working on quite a bit in training because we want to get more out of our set-piece situations.
“It was a great delivery and a fantastic header at the near post.
“Danny has got to bring that to his game, he’s got to add goals from set-pieces because defenders that weigh in with a few goals during the season will be worth their weight in gold.”
