- LIVE: Stoke 2-0 Blackpool
- Seasiders bidding to make it two wins out of two
- Charlie Patino could make his Blackpool debut
Slight improvement from the Seasiders in the second-half but still nowhere near enough, so Michael Appleton’s side can have no complaints with the result.
Poor defensively and only attacking threat came via Bowler.
90 - Stoppage time
Five minutes added on for Blackpool to grab themselves a consolation.
75 - GOAL STOKE (2-0)
Another cross from the left, another Stoke goal. Jacob Brown the man left in acres of space before firing home at the near post.
Good finish, desperate defending.
73 - Great save
Dan Grimshaw makes an excellent save to deny Dwight Gayle.
70 - Patino debut
Charlie Patino is on for his Blackpool debut, replacing Lewis Fiorini.
That's given the away end a lift.
67 - Phew
A superb Josh Tymon free kick reaches about four Stoke men in the six-yard box, but somehow Pool survive.
62 - Over
Callum Connolly does well to beat his man at the near post from a Lewis Fiorini corner but can’t control it, firing well over.
Pool still on top here though.
59 - Free kick
Now Blackpool have a free-kick right on the edge of the box, albeit in a wide position.
Josh Bowler the man brought down after combining well with Callum Connolly.
58 - Survive
Lewis Baker lashes well wide after his free-kick hits the wall.
57 - Block
Rhys Williams makes a vital block to deny Stoke a second.
Hosts are awarded a free-kick right on the edge of the box though.
