Blackpool boss Ian Holloway hailed Brett Ormerod after the veteran striker made history with his goal in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over Tottenham.Ormerod became the first Seasiders player to score in all four divisions when he slotted home his side's third in their impressive triumph at Bloomfield Road.The 34-year-old has played a limited role since securing Blackpool's promotion to the Barclays Premier League last season with the winner against Cardiff in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.Holloway lavished praise on Ormerod on Tuesday, though, before admitting the player had certainly staked a claim for more first-team action."I'm delighted for Brett Ormerod," Holloway said. "I'd like to thank Mr and Mrs Ormerod for Brett! I think what he has done for us in this match, what he did for us in May - I'm so proud to have been a part of it."His dad will probably say 'why aren't you playing him a bit more often?' I might have to if he keeps doing that."
