Blackpool boss Holloway blasts long-ball Blackburn

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has slammed Blackburn Rovers' long-ball tactics.

The two teams drew 2-2 on Saturday.

Holloway believes that more teams should ditch the long ball tactic and pass the ball on the floor like many of the top teams.

Holloway said: "When someone puts snow on it, in to your box when they've got a land of the giants it's hard isn't it.

"At the end of the day if football is going to move forward we have to keep the ball and pass it, we have to because the best in the world do that brilliantly and we're trying to do that."
