Paul Ince: Belief saw Blackpool through

Cristian Battocchio had given the hosts a first-half lead but Tom Ince and Gary McKenzie netted after the break to earn the visitors an unlikely three points.

The Blackpool boss said: "I thought it was a good game all round. When I look back on the whole game, I thought we were the better team.

"Watford came at us in the first 15 minutes, Jonathan Hogg should have scored for them with a header.

"We had a couple of chances and I wouldn't say we found it hard - but we took our time to get into the game.

"But once we got into the game I thought we looked a very, very good side.

"The disappointing thing was the goal. It was a diabolical decision from the linesman - when their player kicked the ball out for a throw it was so plain to see.

"Then the geezer (Fernando Forestieri) took the throw with both feet off the ground - and then to compound that our centre-half made a mistake and we're 1-0 down.

"After that we still showed belief, we didn't drop our heads and we kept believing we could get back into the game and that's a credit to the players.

"Towards the back end of the first half we looked like we were going to get a goal back, we played some lovely football and in the second half it was more of the same.

"If you can get the next goal, they'll get a little bit apprehensive because of where they are in the league - and it proved right."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
