The key to the win over Blackpool was setting the pace of the game early.
When Matt Jarvis found the net inside the opening couple of minutes, I had no doubts that we would go on to take the points.
Blackpool have been a credit to themselves since their promotion to the Premier League, but one thing they don’t do is stay tight, so once we had got our noses in front, I thought we would keep getting chances against them.
For Jamie O’Hara the tempo was also critical early on.
‘We wanted to get at Blackpool as quickly as possible and we wanted to go forward at every possible chance.’ O’Hara told Wolves Official Website..
He continued: ‘I have been taught to play forward whenever I get the ball and if we can keep looking forward and pressing teams back and getting them playing in their half instead of our half it is going to work for us.’
While I had remained confident that chances would flow, we still went into half time with only a one goal lead.
The handbags from Stearman and Campbell which led to Blackpool losing a man was a massive advantage to have during the second half and goals from O’Hara and two from Ebanks-Blake meant the result was as clear cut as the match stats suggested.
Vital Wolves Comment: The game however quickly failed into insignificance following the news of Richards passing and I’d like to pass on our condolences to his family and friends.
