MARK Duffy praised his teammates for the way they reacted after going down to ten men to seal the win against Blackpool.

He said: “We may have only won 1-0 but I felt we dominated the game and that we could have easily scored more if it wasn’t for my old team mate Colin Doyle making several good saves. 

"As a side we created lots of clear-cut chances. Usually when you go down to ten men you sit back more but we did the opposite of that - we had lots of possession. The manager at half time told us that we have the best fitness levels in the league and to use that to our advantage and it was clear to see that we did that.”

Duffy was delighted to score another goal taking his tally to four for the season and wants to add more goals to his game.

“I’ve just turned 30 but I feel as fit as I did five years ago and I feel like if I was going to be a bit self critical of myself is that I need to be more clinical with my finishing. 

"I should have scored more this season but lately I’ve been finding the net more and I hope that continues.

"It was a nice goal. Stuart Beavon has done well with the one-two and luckily for me it has found the top right corner. 

"The partnership with the likes of Stuart, Lucas and Nasser is getting better every day - knowing where each other will be and what kind of balls to play is only going to get better.”
