Flint, Morrison and Ng celebrate...

Mick post-Blackpool | A good away performance

Mick McCarthy spoke with the press after his side defeated Blackpool 2-0 at Bloomfield Road.

The City boss began with a word on the travelling Bluebirds support.

"They enjoyed that," said Mick "They were brilliant, the fans. They travelled in numbers and made a load of noise.

"To be fair, they've seen a good performance. The first half was excellent. We should've been going in in-front. We didn't, and that is always a worry.

"Thankfully, it didn't bite us on the backside. We maintained the performance. We kept a clean sheet and scored two good goals.

"The travelling fans loved it."

Kieffer Moore celebrates his goal at Blackpool...

Forward Kieffer Moore came off the subs bench to net his first goal of the campaign from Ryan Giles' excellent left-footed cross.

Answering a question about Moore's impact, Mick added: "What about the ball that Ryan Giles stuck on his head?

"He put cross after cross in during the first half. Corners too, but nothing came of it.

"For the goal, he picked him out perfectly, and it was a fabulous header.

"Once you put a cross in like that, you expect Kieffer to score it. And he did."

James Collins in action for City at Bloomfield Road...

Kieffer replaced James Collins, who put in another fine shift for the Bluebirds in attack.

"He's chased those central defenders around and bullied them," the City boss continued. "Collo got stuck in. He had a chance under the bar that was behind him and he was really mad about that.

"But he can be very proud of his performance."

The Bluebirds celebrate Bacuna's opener at Bloomfield Road...

Leandro Bacuna opened the scoring for McCarthy's side at Bloomfield Road with a close range header.

"I said to him how well he played last week, but he was frustrated he hadn't scored. He has to be in there to score. As long as you keep getting in there you're going to get goals and he did today.

"It was a really good, well worked, set piece."
