Blackpool boss Holloway: Gilks was phenomenal

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway paid tribute to goalkeeper Matt Gilks after victory at Newcastle United.

Gilks made four excellent saves to keep out Newcastle in Blackpool's first win at St James' Park for 40 years, and one with his feet that his manager Ian Holloway called "world class".

Holloway added: "We're calling him McGilks after his call-up by Scotland. He was quite phenomenal. You need your goalkeeper to do well when you come to places like Newcastle and I can't praise him enough - he was absolutely outstanding."
