Practice makes perfect

1 November 2012

Monday's matchwinner Nick Blackman is a firm believer that practice does make perfect.

The striker settled the clash with Portsmouth with another confidently taken penalty, his fourth this season, all of which have come in front of the Kop.

Blackman, who now has eight goals to his name in all competitions since joining in the summer, says he spends a lot of time perfecting spot kicks on the training ground:

"I love taking penalties because I practice them everyday and always feel confident when I step up."

On his performances and goal tally to date he added: "I am happy enough with my performances and goal return, but slightly disappointed I didn't score in the first minute when Chris Porter flicked inside. Looking back I should have taken it with my right foot, but thankfully we did enough to get another three points."

The 22-year-old reserved a special mention for a team-mate following the 1-0 victory over Pompey.

"Tony (McMahon) was fantastic and that last ditch tackle on Harley late on was as good as a goal, he thoroughly deserved to be named man of the match by the Sky people.."

The full interview is available to BladesPlayer subscribers now.
