  • FT: Blackpool 1-0 Huddersfield Town
  • Seasiders in FA Youth Cup third round action
  • Winners to face Cheltenham Town in next round

A richly deserved win for John Murphy’s side. A trip to Cheltenham Town awaits in the fourth round.

Prince Yelegon slots home what he thinks is Blackpool’s second goal, but the flag is up for offside.

There will be four minutes of time added on.

Can the Seasiders hold on?

Huddersfield have a couple of players down with cramp. It’s been an energy-sapping evening.

Substitute Arnold Matshazi drags a shot into the side netting. This game ought to have been put to bed a long time ago.

Dannen Francis and Jake Daniels make way for James Harrison and Prince Yelegon.

Not long to hold out now.

Jake Daniels lets fly with a powerful effort which Michael Acquah just about deals with. Close again for Pool.

Conor Falls lines up a shot from the edge of the box for Huddersfield but Alec McLachlan flies across goal to push it away from danger. Good save.

Alec McLachlan stays big to make an important save to keep Pool ahead. That would have been incredibly harsh.

Luke Mariette rattles the crossbar from a Blackpool corner before the hosts keep the ball alive, resulting in Will Squires scooping over from six yards out.
