Seasiders boss plays it safe
Ian Holloway is willing to resist his instinct to attack if it is necessary to secure an Championship play-off spot for Blackpool.
The Seasiders' open and expansive attacking approach under Holloway has won them a host of admirers, but some critics have suggested a little more caution might have seen them avoid relegation from the Premier League last term.
Despite losing key players over the summer, Blackpool are closing in on a top-six place once again and, with that in mind, Holloway insists he was more than happy to take a goalless draw at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
"At this time of the year you have to take what you can and that is another point for us with three games left," he told the Blackpool Gazette ahead of Tuesday night's home clash with Leeds.
"I thought we were going to score in the first half, but the longer the game went on the more I was happy to settle for a point, which is unlike me. I took Bob Harris off because he got booked and I put (Stephen) Crainey on, so I played it rather safe by my standards."
