  • FT: Middlesbrough 1-2 Blackpool
  • Seasiders looking to get back to winning ways after midweek setback
  • Demetri Mitchell could return from six-week injury lay-off

What a win! Seasiders fight back from a goal down (that shouldn’t have been allowed) to win for the second time this season. Richly deserved.

Get in!

Boro have a man down injured, so we’re still playing here.

Thankfully Pool have a corner in front of the delighted away fans.

Jordan Gabriel replaces Josh Bowler.

SIX minutes of time added on.

Come on Pool, hold on!

Jerry Yates replaces Shayne Lavery. Four minutes plus stoppage time to hold on.

Space opens up for Shayne Lavery on the break, but the striker opts to delay and the chance goes to waste. He had to shoot when it opened up for him!

Pool almost pegged back immediately as Boro sub Martin Payero hits the crossbar with a curling effort on the edge of the box. But Pool survive.

78 - GOAL BLACKPOOOOOLLLL!!!! (2-1)

Blackpool lead!!

Luke Garbutt’s corner goes in off the head of a Boro defender!

Luke Garbutt wins Pool a corner in front of the away fans, who respond with a roar.

Can the Seasiders get a late winner?
