The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising of LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Rachel Yankey, Les Ferdinand, Clare Tomlinson, Dave Bassett, and Barry Fry has determined that the Utilita Performance of the Week Award should go to Blackpool for their performance against Portsmouth on Saturday the 25th of November.
Blackpool manager, Neil Critchley, will receive the Utilita Performance of the Week trophy.
Blackpool put in an incredible display to demolish league leaders Portsmouth at Fratton Park.
Goals from Owen Dale and Jake Beesley put the Seasiders in a commanding position before a Joe Morrell red card for the hosts made their task even more difficult. CJ Hamilton and Albie Morgan rubbed salt into the wounds as Pool came away with a 4-0 victory on the road.
Blackpool had an early sight of goal in the fifth minute as good build-up play eventually found Sonny Carey with space to drive into the area, before dragging his effort wide of the target. That early pressure from the Seasiders told as a prolonged spell of possession saw CJ Hamilton drive the ball across the area for Owen Dale who placed past Will Norris to open the scoring in the ninth minute at Fratton Park.
