Exeter City 2-3 Blackpool: Matt Scrafton's player ratings after FA Cup first round win
Blackpool held on to claim a 3-2 win at League Two Exeter City to put their name in the hat of the second round of the FA Cup.
Here's how Pool's players rated:
Christoffer Mafoumbi - 7
Made a smart first-half stop to keep Pool one goal ahead and saved Exeter’s penalty, although it was bundled home on the rebound.
Ryan McLaughlin - 6
Sloppy defending saw him concede a penalty to allow Exeter a route back into the game, but otherwise solid.
Ben Heneghan - 7
Pool’s first goal began with his pinpoint diagonal to the left flank. Did well against Exeter’s dangerous front two.
Curtis Tilt - 7
A little over confident at times but otherwise very good. Could have done better to clear before Exeter got their second.
Ollie Turton - 7
As solid as ever over on the left hand side of defence, once again finishing the game in a different position.
Callum Guy - 7
All-action and energetic display. Unfortunate not to find the back of the net with two chances at the start of the second half.
Jordan Thompson - 7
Grabbed an assist with his corner being turned home for Blackpool’s second by Mark Cullen. Brings quality and calmness on the ball.
Harry Pritchard - 7
Involved in Blackpool’s first goal and grabbed the goal for the third, diverting Joe Dodoo’s shot home.
John O’Sullivan - 6
Played his part in the opener by heading back across for Dodoo, but otherwise struggled to get into the game.
Joe Dodoo - 7
Opened the scoring with a well-taken header and will claim an assist for his shot that Harry Pritchard turned home.
Mark Cullen - 7
Netted against Exeter again, just as he did in the League Two play-off final at Wembley, with a close-range finish.
Subs usedLiam Feeney - 5
For Cullen, 66
Gave the ball away too cheaply on a number of occasions, allowing Exeter the chance to launch late attacks.
Michael Nottingham - 6
For O’Sullivan, 74
Unfortunate to find himself back on the bench but added height to Pool’s defence as they looked to hold on at the end.
Nathan Delfouneso - 6
For McLaughlin, 88
Had no real time to make an impact but the substitution allowed Blackpool to wind the clock down.
