Matty Virtue was Blackpool's standout man

Here's how Pool's players rated:

Made a smart save before being beaten by Curtis Tilts own goal. Needs to be more commanding from crosses.
Defended well and was a threat aerially but still looks uneasy bringing the ball out from the back.

Didnt have much to do but carried out his duties well and with minimal fuss. Now one of the first names on the teamsheet.
Unfortunate to score an own goal but the defender didnt let the early setback affect the rest of his game.
No assist this week but his deliveries into the box remained good. Ought to have scored in the first half.
Caught out too often down the left flank and allowed too many crosses to come in. Appears to have broken his nose.
Barked orders non-stop so much he lost his voice come full time. Kept things neat and tidy in midfield.
Got into some good attacking positions which paid off at the death when he levelled with a convincing strike.
A quieter game from the midfielder. Needs to stay on his feet more often instead of constantly searching for free kicks.
Held the ball up well at times but link-up play was poor and showed selfishness when Ryan Hardie was through on goal.
Only one chance came his way and it was one he ought to have scored, failing to beat the keeper from close range.
For Edwards, 55 Attacked with a purpose and won Blackpool a couple of late free kicks with his surging runs down the right.
For Thompson, 55 Embarked on two or three mazy runs and demonstrated his dribbling ability, but lacked an end product.
For Hardie, 79 Had no real time to affect the game in his short cameo on the pitch at a time Pool were looking to get back in the game.
