Blackpool boss Ian Holloway took aim at their critics after victory over West Bromwich Albion.

After just 10 games Holloway's side have already surpassed that target and the 47-year-old manager admitted he was revelling in showing up those who doubted his squad of relative unknowns.

"It's a wonderful situation to get a couple of points off our chest," he said after his side's first home win of the season.

"Ten points, the lowest points ever, we aren't going to be that team, so shut up the lot of you whoever wrote it.

"That's what I feel like. It's unfair. They judged us far too early. I think we're a good bunch of lads, we're a good team.

"I think we've got to improve, I think we'll try to.

"But that's 13 points in 10 games. They might be the only 13 points we get, (but) you said we were only going to get 10.

"Please don't disrespect us."
