LOACH: IT'S A TEAM EFFORT

6 April 2013

Blues stopper draws the plaudits for penalty save but is quick to praise his teammates after last minute Edwards winner at Derby

Scott Loach was quick to praise his team-mates after Blues beat Derby County thanks to Carlos Edwards’ last minute winner.

The Town stopper had earlier drew the plaudits after he kept out Jamie Ward’s first-half penalty, before skipper Carlos netted in injury time to see Mick McCarthy’s side take all three points.

“This was a whole team performance and it shows how much hard-work we put in throughout the week,” Loachy told the Club website.

“I’m delighted to save the penalty but you’ve also got Carlos popping up with a screamer at the other end, Tabby (Jay Tabb) throwing his body on the line to make a block from a free-kick, Tommy (Smith) and Chambo (Luke Chambers) willing to head a bus if need be and you could see the rest of the lads all working their socks off.

“It’s a real team effort and we’ve highlighted that with the performance and effort today. This is a massive three points for us.

“We’re not safe yet and we won’t be until it’s mathematically sorted but there’s no denying that this is a massive win for us.”
