MATCH REPORT: Blackpool 1-1 Accrington Stanley
Here's how Pool's players rated:
Mark Howard - 8
Made an outstanding double save and was unlucky to concede at the death and not keep a clean sheet.
Michael Nottingham - 7
Never looked like being beaten at the back and was always a threat going forwards. Should have done better with a couple of chances.
Ben Heneghan - 6
Made a vital block in the first half to deny Stanley taking the lead but let Hughes go unmarked for their goal.
Paudie O’Connor - 6
Lost a few aerial duels but otherwise solid. Dealt well with Stanley’s main attacking threat Billy Kee.
Marc Bola - 7
Defended well when he needed to, used his pace and strength. Also helped Delfouneso in attack to make 2v1 situations.
Ollie Turton - 7
Ran his socks off and always looked to play forward. Did very well in midfield but can’t be relied on to create.
Jay Spearing - 6
Moved the ball well at times and even came close to scoring with a volley that went just wide.
Jordan Thompson - 8
Hugely impressive. Ran the show in midfield and helped a create a number of chances with his set-piece deliveries.
Nathan Delfouneso - 7
Scored the goal and used his pace and trickery to his advantage. However should have been more clinical in front of goal.
Joe Dodoo - 6
Came close on a couple of occasions and should really have scored in the first half when he missed a gilt-edged chance.
Mark Cullen - 6
Never really tested Ripley in goal but was able to hold the ball up well and wait for his teammates to join him up the pitch.
Liam Feeney - 6
For Cullen, 71
Mostly left to chase for lost causes as Accrington piled on the pressure at the end. Looks good with his feet and pacey.
John O’Sullivan - 6
For Bola, 71
No noticeable impact on the game either way. Brought on at a time when Stanley were beginning to up the ante.
Armand Gnanduillet - 6
For Dodoo, 79
Helped defensively, heading clear on a couple of occasions and also came close with a header at the other end.
