illy Sharp`s late equaliser for Doncaster Rovers prevented the Tangerines from coming away with all three points in Saturday`s game at Bloomfield Road.
The home side dominated the first half but lacked the goal they needed to put themselves ahead. However, the Seasiders efforts were rewarded late in the second half when new signing Andy Halliday dinked the ball over Rovers keeper Ross Turnbull on his debut to put Pool 1-0 up.
Blackpool`s lead lasted a total of seven minutes. A dangerous delivery into the box from the Rovers man was touched in by on loan striker Billy Sharp to level the score at 1-1.
The draw stretched Pool`s winless run to a substantial 11 games, though it has to be said that the performance on Saturday was a lot more positive in comparison with the previous 10 winless games.
The result pleased caretaker boss Barry Ferguson, he told reporters: 'It was phenomenal the effort they put in and I think everybody could see that. I couldn't be any more proud of them.` He also added: 'After that performance I won't get back in the team, but that doesn't bother me because they are all my mates. At the end of the day I got asked to do a job and the way they responded to me, I can't ask for anymore.`
Ferguson was also quick to thank the fans for their support on Saturday, stating that: 'The fans were unbelievable`.
It is still unclear as to whether Fergie will remain in the manager role on a more permanent basis or not, with Chairman Karl Oyston likely to make an announcement later this week.
Although Fergie`s first game in charge didn`t result in a win, we fans can certainly be pleased at the performance from the team. Fergie`s more 'attack looking` line-up resulted in a superb attacking display with lots of chances created, especially in the first half. This result is certainly something to build on if Fergie stays in charge of the club.
Next up for the Pool is an away trip to Reading on Tuesday. Let`s all hope that Tuesday will be the day that the Tangerines winless run finally comes to an end. Up the Pool!
