SEASIDERS fans are dreaming of Wembley after roaring their side to a crucial victory.

Bloomfield Road was rocking as thousands of supporters made sure the team knew they believed – and their heroes on the pitch delivered.

The club will take a vital one goal lead into their play off semi-final second leg at Birmingham City on Wednesday night, and with the tie at half-time there’s cautious optimism among fans.

Geoff Attwater, 59, from Thornton, said: “The atmosphere at the game was really good, the whole town is behind the team and the momentum is starting again.

“On Wednesday night all the pubs in town will be full for the second leg, it’s superb.”

A sell-out crowd watched Tom Ince score Blackpool’s only goal of the night – and one fan who’s hoping it is a goal that takes him back to Wembley is 12-year-old Tommy May.

The St George’s High School pupil said: “I was at Wembley last time and I really enjoyed it.

“Everyone is behind the team and everyone at school has been excited.

“I think we can do it.”

Just over 2,000 Blackpool fans will make the trip to St Andrews on Wednesday for the second leg.
