Gilks earns Holloway praise
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway was quick to hail Matt Gilks after the goalkeeper helped the Tangerines claim a share of the spoils at Nottingham Forest.
Gilks denied Greg Cunningham and Dexter Blackstock in quick succession before half-time to ensure Blackpool claimed a goalless draw at the Forest Ground. And Holloway said: "My goalie was in great form and made two greats stops when he had to. When I came he wanted to leave but he's improved mentally more than any person I have ever worked with. His concentration is brilliant and although he's as mad as a brush, you have to be when you play in goal." The draw takes Blackpool a point nearer to claiming a place in the npower Championship play-offs but Holloway reckons it is all up for grabs in the final three games. He added: "We've got two home games now, starting with Leeds on Tuesday night, and after the result they have had that will not be easy. Then we have Burnley and the last thing we want to do is to have to go to Millwall for the last game needing to win the game. "But whatever happens it's wonderful to be where we are considering we lost five fantastic players last summer."
