GOALS from Matt Jarvis, Jamie O’Hara and two from Sylvan Ebanks-Blake saw Blackpool lose at Wolves.
The Seasiders, missing skipper Charlie Adam through suspension, never got going and a sending off to DJ Campbell for raising his hands in the first half summed up their afternoon.
Read our minute-by-minute report below:
FULL TIME: WOLVES 4 BLACKPOOL 0
You can’t really argue with the result today. Blackpool never got going from minute one and didn’t really deserve anything from the game. DJ’s silly sending off didn’t help and Charlie Adam was a massive loss in the middle of the park.

HALF TIME: WOLVES 1 BLACKPOOL 0
Blackpool will be pleased to get in at the break after what was a pretty poor first half. The Seasiders are well in the game here, but the sending off has made things very difficult. Big job for Ian Holloway at the break.
42 mins: DJ CAMPBELL IS SENT OFF! The striker reacted to Steadman by pushing him in the face. A rare moment of madness from DJ. Have to say it was a clear sending off.
38 mins: Don’t want to state the obvious here, but Blackpool really are missing Charlie Adam in the middle of the park this afternoon. We are crying out for someone to get hold of the ball.
36 mins: Kevin Foley comes on for Wolves in place of Adam Hammill who appears to be struggling with a knock.
36 mins: Luke Varney should have hit the target when a lucky break in midfield for Blackpool saw the striker in on goal. However, on his left foot, he shot wide of the near post.

28 mins: Early substitution for Blackpool as Luke Varney comes on to replace Sergei Kornilenko. Looks tactical.

26 mins: Blackpool really struggling here. Ian Holloway will not be happy with the way things are going so far this afternoon.
23 mins: Former Blackpool loan star, and January target Adam Hammill turns well in the box before firing just over.
22 mins: ‘One Dean Richards’ chant the home fans in tribute to their 36-year-old former defender who sadly died today. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

15 mins: Shout for a penalty to Blackpool as DJ Campbell’s scuffed shot appeared to strike the arm of Wolves defender Richard Stearman. Despite huge claims from Ian Evatt, referee Swarsbrick waved play-on.
14 mins: Richard Kingson pulls off a brilliant save from David Edwards.
13 mins: David Vaughan whips a superb ball from the left right accross the box. Sadly a flying Keith Southern at the back post couldn’t get on the end of it.
