Blackpool managed a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at Bloomfield Road on Monday.
“I am glad the monkey is off our back and we have won at home,” Holloway told Sky Sports.
“If that is the only 13 we get – don’t do us with disrespect, we are a good footballing team, yes we do have to sharpen up in front of goal but we are going to improve and keep getting better,” he continued.
“West Brom have been up and down, and the quality they have in their squad it is starting to show. They have done really well and we are just basically out of the nest, we are fledglings.
“My lads, I am really proud of them and we have it harder than anyone else, but I am a realist but there is not one game here I will come and think we are going to win.
“My lads will get used to it, and I am enjoying it.”
