Have your say

A LATE goal from Jermaine Defoe meant Blackpool had to be content with a point against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Seasiders had raced into a lead when Charlie Adam scored from the spot only a minute after having one saved.

However Blackpool were denied a massive three points in the 88th minute when Defoe burried one from 20-yards.

Follow our minute-by-minute report below:


So close to what would have been such an important win, but this could be a very very big point come the end of the season.

90 mins: Six minutes added time.


88 mins: GOAL FOR SPURS!!!

Heartbreak for Blackpool as Jermaine Defoe bursts forward before hammering home from 20 yards.

86 mins: HUGE chance for Jason Puncheon to seal it after great work from Blackpool. He met DJ Campbell’s pass before shooting over, should have done better.

85 mins: This is a huge five minutes in Blackpool’s season.

81 mins: Ian Evatt has just gone down clutching his face after an elbow by Jermaine Defoe, wouldn’t say it was intentional though.

78 mins: Aaron Lennon booked for kicking the ball away.

76 mins: Craig Cathcart replaces Gary Taylor-Fletcher for Blackpool.




Gary Taylor-Fletcher is fouled in the box and Charlie Adam SCORES!!!


Charlie Adam misses! Good save by Gomes.

73 mins: MASSIVE chance for DJ Campbell, he met a great ball from Keith Southern before forcing a save from GOMES.

69 mins: Claim for a penalty by the home fans. Lennon hammering the ball against the arm of Crainey. Would have been harsh.

68 mins: Crucial spell of the game coming up. A point or more could be so vital for Blackpool.

62 mins: Gareth Bale is carried off after a tackle by Charlie Adam, Peter Crouch comes on to replace him.

53 mins: Gareth Bale gives Blackpool a scare with a superb effort just wide.

51 mins: Brilliant effort from David Vaughan. The midfielder cut in from the right before striking left-footed just wide of Gomes’ post.

48 mins: Big chance for Spurs as the ball fell to Bale unmarked 15 yards out. The highly-rated Welshman scooped it over the bar.

46 mins: Lively start from Blackpool, DJ Campbell sees a long range effort deflected wide.

45 mins: Substitution for both sides. Jason Puncheon comes on for Sergi Kornilenko and Aaron Lennon comes on in place of Roman Pavlyuchenko.

25 mins: Neat play by Spurs resulted in a decent effort by Rafael van der Vaart from 20 yards. Well saved by Gilks.

24 mins: From the resulting Adam corner Kornilenko should have done better with a free header from eight yards. The striker headed well over.

23 mins: FANTASTIC save by Gomes prevents Charlie Adam from giving Blackpool the lead. The Pool skipper showed superb technique to strike the ball towards goal only for the keeper to match it with a fantastic save.

21 mins: Neal Eardley is booked for a foul on Danny Rose. Could be a long afternoon now for him up against Gareth Bale.

16 mins: Brilliant block from Ian Evatt stops a Jermaine Defoe volley on route to goal.

15 mins: A frantic start to the game here at White Hart Lane, attack v defence at times. Blackpool need to keep the ball better.

10 mins: Decent spell from Blackpool, getting plenty of the ball.
