'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Half Time: Leicester 1 - 1 Blackpool

At half time from the Walkers Stadium, it's Leicester City 1 - 1 Blackpool on Ian Holloway's return to his old club.

The Seasiders started brightly with Charlie Adam's rasping drive flying just wide and a mis-hit shot from Keith Southern hitting the post.

What was concerning for 'Pool was the way in which Steve Howard found space inside the box and the big striker - formerly of Luton - had a header saved and one flash wide.

Lloyd Dyer went close for the hosts and Adam also tested the City defence in an extremely open first half.

A goal was coming and it came from a silly foul by Emmanuel-Thomas in the midfield, who tripped his man, and whilst the Tangerine defence were sleeping Richie Wellens quickly found Matty Fryatt who slotted home on 26 minutes.

But the visitors came back strongly and a fantastic one-two between Adam and captain Jason Euell saw the Scotsman race clear and dribbled past the goalkeeper - poking home into an empty net.

Minutes later Matt Oakley saw a freekick hit the post and Wellens was denied a penalty when he went down inside the box.

Ian Evatt was booked late in the half and it ended 1-1 with 45 minutes to play.
