TWO second-half goals saw Blackpool come from two down to earn a point against Ipswich.

An Angel Martinez own goal and a Tommy Smith header saw the home side 2-0 up on 61 minutes.

However, three substitutions by Ian Holloway turned the game.

First Elliot Grandin tapped home on the line before Kevin Phillips finished superbly with ten minutes remaining.

Blackpool could have won it late on with chances from Kevin and Matty Phillips, but they’ll be more than happy with a point in the end.
