Blackpool 2-1 Accrington Stanley

Blackpool 2-1 Accrington Stanley

It's two wins out of two for the Seasiders now this pre-season as tonight they beat Accrington Stanley 2-1 in their opening game of the Joma South West Cup.

Paul Rachubka was given the nod in goal and was shielded by a back four of Rob Edwards, Ian Evatt, Alex Baptiste and Danny Coid. Trialist Malaury Martin was handed a start in midfield alongside Charlie Adam and Keith Southern, whilst Jason Euell, Brett Ormerod and 'trialist' Franny Jeffers started up top.

Because of the FA sticking their oar in and insisting that each side could only make three subs, it was difficult for Ollie to include more trialists or give everyone a run out. However, he did the best he could by getting players to switch shirts at half time, something that Sky picked up on but the officials missed!

Brett Ormerod opened the scoring for the Seasiders before Stanley equalised through a Jimmy Ryan freekick.

However, Keith Southern was on hand to head home Neal Eardley's cross in the second half to win the game for the Seasiders after some good work by Ishmel, with the winger impressing once again.
