Blackpool v Preston North End - live updates

Last updated: Saturday, 23 October, 2021, 17:05

  • FT: Blackpool 2-0 PNE
  • Seasiders and Lilywhites renew acquaintance after eight long years
  • Pool looking for first home win in the derby in 24 years

This time for Brad Potts, who takes to the pitch to replace Ben Whiteman. I don’t think the PNE fans are too happy with that change either.

Blackpool are well on top now and are going for the kill. A third goal would certainly put the game to bed for good.

68 - GOAL BLACKPOOLLLLL!!!!! (2-0)

Gary Madine doubles Blackpool’s lead from Jerry Yates’ lovely through-ball.

Bedlam!!

Keshi Anderson fires over from Jerry Yates’ lay-off. Only a half-chance really, as it was from a tight angle.

Blackpool-born Tom Barkhuizen has just been brought on for the visitors, by the way, as has Sean Maguire.

The Seasiders are managing the game well at the moment, but there’s still a long way to go.

Not a great deal is happening on the pitch at the moment, which suits Blackpool just fine.

The North Stand’s singing is absolutely relentless. They’ve been chanting non-stop for the last 10 minutes or so.

Kenny Dougall almost picks out Josh Bowler, who is in acres of space. But the midfielder overhits his pass.

Jordan Gabriel is down receiving treatment following a collision with Alan Browne. Both seem okay to continue.

PNE counter and put it on a plate for Ben Whiteman at the back post, but he misses the target. Big miss.

Jesus, that’s a superb tackle from Josh Earl to deny Keshi Anderson his second as Blackpool countered from a PNE corner.
