Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is happy with his players, despite another home defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

Newly-promoted Blackpool are still looking for their first home win after defeating Wigan, Newcastle and famously Liverpool on the road.

However Holloway had nothing but praise for his side following the defeat by City, who moved to second in the table.

Substitute Marlon Harewood brought Blackpool level only for Tevez and David Silva - with a glorious solo effort - to pull City clear before Gary Taylor-Fletcher scored in stoppage time.

Holloway added: "I was very proud of my team. I swear we have got to go gung-ho in this division. Football is about being entertaining."
