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

Report: Blackpool 0-0 Watford

Yesterday was one of those days. The Seasiders dominated the game against Watford, but just couldn't find the back of the net. I suppose that we should just be thankful that the visitors didn't perform a smash and grab job on us.

'Pool made one change from last weekend's draw against Southampton; Lomano Tresor LuaLua replacing Chris Basham. Meanwhile, Billy Clarke stepped up to the subs' bench.

The Seasiders dominated the game from the off; the ever improving Matt Phillips hitting the post from distance with Scott Loach beaten after a superb mazy run.

Callum McManaman then fired a cross-cum-shot right across the face of goal before LuaLua also rattled the woodwork from 20 yards, with Loach beaten again.

'Pool's domination continued in the second half; Matt Phillips' wonderful run and cross somehow evading everyone.

Gary Taylor-Fletcher then missed an absolute sitter; choosing to backheel the ball arrogantly instead of just tapping it in, firing wide in the process. How he continues to get in the team is anyone's guess.

'Pool were nearly made to pay for GTF's wastefulness; Prince Buaben wasting a great chance to score for the visitors.

Kevin Phillips and Billy Clarke were then thrown on as Ian Holloway looked for the breakthrough goal.

Phillips himself missed a great chance; heading over, before Scott Loach made a double save from Craig Cathcart and Ian Evatt as the Hornets (who time wasted throughout the second half) grimly held on for a point.
