Carney hoping to cement position at Blackpool

David Carney is hoping to cement his position with new club Blackpool after firing the winner for his country on Saturday night.

The former FC Twente winger rammed home a 53rd minute shot as Australia defeated Paraguay 1-0 in Sydney on the weekend and is now looking to become a regular starter in the English Premier League.

Carney said that if Seasiders boss Ian Holloway did not have a copy of Saturday night's goal, then he would certainly provide him with one to give him every chance of being considered for this weekend's home clash with Manchester City.

"Hopefully, he's seen it but if he doesn't I'll bring a CD in for him and show him," Carney said.

"To get a game for Blackpool, I think I'm going to have to do that.

"Hopefully I will get a chance soon.

"I'm alright about it (not playing) actually. Playing in Holland and winning the Dutch league and then playing in the World Cup and getting a move to a Premier League club - I don't think it's too frustrating," he added.

"I've just got to keep working hard, bide my time and when I get it, I've got to take it.

"I've become a better player over the past 18 months for sure. I've spoken with Ian Holloway and I'm sure I'm going to be a big part this season so it's just a matter of learning the way he wants to play and I look forward to it."
