Ian Holloway is delighted with the range of attacking talent his is able to call on at Blackpool.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has declared himself happy with the vast attacking options at his disposal after his side's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.

Holloway made a triple substitution on the hour mark of that victory, bringing on Elliot Grandin, Chris Basham and Kevin Phillips, all of whom played a decisive part in the Tangerines' late comeback.

Matt Phillips, Thomas Ince and Gary Taylor-Fletcher also played in the match, leading Holloway to praise the options available to him.

"It is nice to have such great choice when you think about some of the players that left last season, which was the best side we've had in 30 years," said Holloway.

"To think I've got all of these choices now - do I pick Grandin? Ince? Fleck? Taylor-Fletcher? Matt Phillips? Kevin Phillips? And we definitely needed that because Crystal Palace came and parked the bus and I felt we should have had a penalty.

"They ended up getting one and we didn't and I thought it was going to be one of those days when things like that happen. But you can't keep our luck down. They made so many changes and to take on the team with one of the best defensive records in the league and go one down and still win is fantastic."

The win moves Blackpool into seventh place in the Championship, one point adrift of the play-off spots.
