Ian Holloway was full of praise for Huddersfield Town after his Blackpool side suffered a surprise 3-1 defeat on Monday night.
Simon Grayson's visitors moved up to second in the Championship table after upsetting the odds against one of the division's promotion favourites at Bloomfield Road.
Lee Novak opened the scoring and although Gary Taylor-Fletcher equalised, on-loan striker James Vaughan regained the lead before then claiming a touch on Oliver Norwood's free-kick.
And Holloway, whose team could have gone top of the table with a win, told Sky Sports: "Huddersfield are a good team. They knew quite a bit about what we do, particularly from set-pieces.
"Their two centre forwards were an absolute handful. We didn't look like we could cope with that and they have gone and won.
"Were my team as good as we normally are? Did we get affected by things, or did they stop us?
"I thought they stopped us. I thought they showed great desire and well done to them."
