Del Boy’s Just Ince Perfect

Blackpool’s Nathan Delfouneso wants to share the spotlight with star man Thomas Ince after taming Millwall’s beastly defence.

Tangerines caretaker-boss Steve Thompson has warned his players that they must not keep relying on sought-after winger Ince to push them up the table.

And, after netting his seventh goal of the campaign to help Blackpool to a rare win, on-loan hitman Delfouneso reckons he can answer his manager’s call.

He said: “I can be the man to take some of the weight off Thomas’ shoulders.

“I have faith in myself to go and get goals.

“I haven’t been in the starting line-up for the last couple of weeks, but hopefully that goal will push my case to get back in the starting eleven.”

Delfouneso’s injury-time winner earned Blackpool only their second victory in 11 games as they look to reignite their faltering play-off challenge.

But once again they needed England Under-21 star Ince to get them back into the game.

He levelled on the hour after James Henry had given Millwall a freak lead by netting directly from a corner before half-time.

But Lions striker Rob Hulse bemoaned their luck as the team slipped to a fourth consecutive league defeat.

“I think we’ve hit the post and the bar twice, it’s just one of those days today,” he said.
