FULL TIME: BLACKPOOL 2 DONCASTER 1

94 mins: GOAL TO BLACKPOOL!!!

Tom Ince a sensational strike from 25-yards into the top corner to hand Blackpool the win. Fantastic effort from the youngster.

90 mins: Four minutes time added on.

89 mins: McManaman cuts inside from the left and fires at Sullivan from 18 yards.

85 mins: Blackpool have been much the better side since the subs. Should have gone onto get the second really, still time...

81 mins: Callum McManaman had a big chance to make himself a hero. He ran onto a good pass from Barry Ferguson but could only fire straight at Sullivan.

74 mins Sullivan saves Donny again. This time he tips a decent Kevin Phillips effort over. Much better from Blackpool!

71 mins: Kevin Phillips forces a superb save from Neil Sullivan as he headed a deflected Crainey cross towards goal.

67 mins: Blackpool should go onto win this game now. The subs have added urgency to the game and the Seasiders look a totally different side.

65 mins: Matt Gilks again performs heroics as he dived to save Billy Sharpe’s shot when the striker was clean in on goal. How many times has Gilks saved Pool lately.

63 mins: GOAL TO BLACKPOOL!!!

Tom Ince scores with a fantastic finish for the Seasiders. The winger raced onto a Gary Taylor-Fletcher pass, took on a defender and curled the ball left-footed into the corner. Brilliant stuff.

57 mins: Fantastic save from Matt Gilks as Giles Barnes strikes from 25 yards.

56 mins: Blackpool make three changes. Callum McManaman, Kevin Phillips and Tom Ince replace Brett Ormerod, Daniel Bogdanovic and Jonjo Shelvey. Fans booed when Shelvey was withdrawn.

54 mins: Kyle Bennett, who has looked a handful all night, cuts inside and fires wide for Donny.

49 mins: Good move by the away side ended in Pascal Chimbonda firing a superb ball into the box, no striker was on the end of it.

45 mins: Doncaster kick-off the second half, lets hope for a much more positive 45 mins from the Seasiders.

HALF TIME: BLACKPOOL 0 DONCASTER 1

Poor half for Blackpool who don’t look to have got over Saturday’s hammering. Ian Holloway needs to get stuck into the team at half time!

45 mins: Two minutes of time added on.

44 mins: Bit of a better spell for Blackpool, keeping the ball better now. No clear cut chances though.

36 mins: Trying to find positives from tonight so far, not many. The kit looks nice I suppose.

32 mins: Stephen Crainey tries a long range effort, well wide.

29 mins: All one way here, Blackpool really struggling. Kyle Bennett turns well and fired over from 25-yards for Donny.
