  • FT: Blackpool 1-0 Barnsley
  • Seasiders bidding to make it back-to-back wins

Blackpool beat Barnsley 1-0 to claim their first back-to-back wins of the season. Get in!

Bloomfield Road is rocking!

Three minutes will be added on. Can Pool hold on?!

Aaron Leya Iseka goes to ground in the Blackpool box under a trailing foot. The referee blows for a Blackpool free-kick though!

Demi Mitchell does well to win Pool a corner in front of the North Stand.

The unmarked Michal Helik heads wide from a Barnsley corner.

James Husband and Demetri Mitchell enter the fray. It’s a first appearance of the season for the latter.

Keshi Anderson and Josh Bowler are the two to make way.

A right-wing cross inadvertently deflects kindly for Cauley Woodrow, whose first-time effort is well saved by Chris Maxwell.

78 - Winding the clock down

Gary Madine has just taken the ball to the corner to waste some precious seconds. It’s clear what his instructions are!

Barnsley are beginning to have more of a go but they still look so tame.

This is bound to leave me with egg on my face now, but the away side have been so poor this afternoon. Pool, who have been excellent, still need that second though.

Luke Garbutt clips a deep free-kick towards Marvin Ekpiteta at the back post. Ekpiteta nods it down towards Shayne Lavery but it ricochets into his shin pads and out for a goal kick.

Unlucky.
