GARY Taylor-Fletcher described last night’s draw as “just our luck”.

His 75th minute goal looked to have handed the Seasiders a win they so vitally needed after Elliot Grandin had cancelled out Billy Sharp’s opener.

But as the board for added time was raised by the fourth official, Dexter Blackstock struck to steal the win from Blackpool.

And Taylor-Fletcher thinks it’s typical of the way things are going at the moment. He said: “We’ll keep playing our football, and I’m sure that with the squad we’ve got the results will soon change.

“It showed character from us to come back. In the last few games we’ve gone behind and not really looked like coming back into the game.

“But you could see in our body language that we always believed we could still beat Forest. We were on top of the game at 2-1 and we have to take the positives. We deserved more.”

The 31-year-old admit he’s been frustrated with his lack of goals in recent weeks. He’s scored three in 12 appearances this season and admitted: “I was disappointed with myself against Burnley, so I needed that goal.

“I just remember Elliot trying to beat a few at the edge of the box and the ball falling to me. I hit it first time and it was just what I needed. Before the game we talked about not getting people in the box quickly enough.
