Have your say

Tom Aldred’s first half header earned Blackpool their second win on the bounce and lifted them out of the League One drop zone.

The defender leapt to power home a near post header from David Ferguson’s corner to seal a hard fought victory at the DW Stadium.

In shocking conditions Blackpool started the game well and were worthy half-time leaders.

After the break it was a case of holding onto their lead at the home side came back into it as Pool tired from the hour mark onwards.

Once again loan keeper Dean Lyness was called upon with some superb saves, while Aldred was outstanding at the back.

The win lifts Pool outside of the League One relegation zone, and you have to say it was well deserved.
