Last updated: Tuesday, 23 November, 2021, 21:37

  • FT: Blackpool 0-0 West Brom
  • Seasiders host high-flying Baggies at Bloomfield Road
  • Neil Critchley’s men bidding to close the gap to Championship play-offs

Owen Dale and CJ Hamilton are on for Josh Bowler and Shayne Lavery.

Reece James makes an absolutely superb block to deny Jordan Hugill, throwing his body in front of the ball.

Matt Clarke somehow manages to head over the bar from virtually on the goalline in what was a crowded six-yard box.

Matt Phillips, meanwhile, is given a decent reception as he’s replaced by former PNE man Jordan Hugill. Another former PNE forward Callum Robinson is on for Grady Diangana.

Keshi Anderson follows Ryan Wintle in becoming the second Pool player to be booked. Referee Jarred Gillett adjudged the winger had dived as he surged towards the Baggies box.

Marvin Ekpiteta stretches out his sizeable left leg to block Conor Townsend’s dangerous ball in from the left.

Great defending from the centre back.

Ryan Wintle is shown a yellow for hauling down Karlan Grant and stopping a West Brom break.

That’s a big chance for Pool.

Keshi Anderson does superbly to take the ball from one side of the pitch to the other, eventually pulling it back to Gary Madine who swivels and shoots, only for Kyle Bartley to block well.

We’re back underway

West Brom get the game restarted. Both sides are unchanged.

A half of two halves, if you like.

The Seasiders started strongly but came under heaps of pressure later on and were fortunate not to concede. Real entertaining stuff though.

Wow. That's incredible.

Sam Johnstone makes two incredible saves to deny the Seasiders. That's why he's an England international.
