Ollie Turton was superb for Blackpool during yesterday's draw with Fleetwood

Here's how Pool's players rated...

A couple of mishaps aside, a fairly solid display to keep another clean sheet. Vocal throughout against his former side.
Produced two superb, last-ditch blocks to deny his former teammate Kyle Vassell and got forward well.

Required to cover well as Fleetwood looked for that searching ball in behind. Survived an early penalty appeal.
Had his hands full with former Seasider Kyle Vassell in what was a physical battle, but coped well.
Got forward well and set up a threatening deep cross for Ollie Turton. Provided a threat from set-pieces.
Hobbled off in the first-half after a collision with Fleetwood’s Dan Batty. Big blow for the Seasiders.
A little wasteful in possession but improved in the second-half and often took responsibility, always showing for the ball.
Always a threat in behind with his pace but missed a glorious chance to win the game when he hit the post.
Looked lively and gave Fleetwood’s wing-back plenty of problems. Put the ball on a plate for CJ Hamilton.
Held the ball up well early on and used his strength, but tired in the second-half and became less effective.
Got into some good positions but it wasn’t his day in front of goal. Denied early on with a stooping header.
For Stewart, 36' Looked to get forward and almost won the game in stoppage time when his shot deflected agonisingly wide.
For Hamilton, 73' We saw plenty of endeavour and direct running, but his end product often let him down at the vital moment.
