IAN Holloway felt goalkeeper Matt Gilks was Blackpool's unsung hero during their 2-0 win over Millwall on Saturday.
Midfielder Thomas Ince claimed the plaudits after his brace secured a 2-0 victory for the visitors, but Tangerines boss Holloway reserved special praise for Gilks.
The 30-year-old made a crucial save to deny Andy Keogh the opening goal in the 22nd minute, rushing out to block the Lions striker's close-range half-volley after he was put through on goal.
And Holloway said afterwards: "The most important thing today that nobody's mentioned was my goalkeeper.
"If they'd gone 1-0 up there I think we could have been beaten. That save was the game in a nutshell.
"The game was really tight. To come to a place like this is really tough, especially because I know what Kenny Jackett's teams are like to play against. Luckily we got the first goal and our gameplan worked.
"This place [The Den] is just brilliant. The banter behind the dugout, the passion the fans have got and the beautiful new pitch are all absolutely superb."
