45 mins: Lualua forces a brilliant save by Lonergan again, this time from a 25 yard free-kick.

41 mins: Another chance for Blackpool, this time Matt Phillips headed over from six yards after Taylor-Fletcher had turned it back across goal.

29 mins: Best chance of the game so far falls to Tom Ince. He wriggled past a defender at the edge of the box and shot left footed from 16 yards. Good save from Lonergan, Ince should really have scored.

21 mins: Big shout for a penalty as Lualua appears to be fouled in the box, referee not having it.

15 mins: Gary Taylor-Fletcher burst through on goal, Lonergan does well to save. Great spell by the home side.

13 mins: Brilliant from Tom Ince. The forward picked up the ball on the half-way line, drove into the box and fired just over. Need more of that from him.

11 mins: Matt Phillips cuts in from the left wing and shot into the side netting, big chance.

10 mins: Nice touch by Blackpool fans. They sing as one ‘Billy Ayre’s Tangerine Army’. The popular former boss died ten years ago this week.
