Holloway highlights Southern factor
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway believes former player Keith Southern was pivotal in Huddersfield's 3-1 victory at Bloomfield Road.
The Seasiders missed out on the chance to go top of the npower Championship as Lee Novak put Simon Grayson's side ahead only for Gary Taylor-Fletcher to level, but James Vaughan struck before the break and Oliver Norwood added a third moments after the restart. "We got what we deserved," said Holloway. "They were completely fully charged for it and didn't seem to mind about what was happening other than where the ball was. "Their game plan, with Keith Southern in there, was to rattle us, get in our faces and get the ball off us and to be fair, it worked. "What I should have known is that Keith would have known what we do and I should have changed things around, because my markers who attack the ball in the air - my three biggest and strongest - they all got blocked off. "Their front two completely came out on top of my two centre halves and too many times we didn't do what we should have done and still tried to play. Well done to their manager and their team and what everyone was going on about beforehand was nonsense - this is the Championship and they're a good team. Hopefully we can dust ourselves down and do better."
