On the stroke of Half time, Brian Reid scrambles in Gary Parkinsons deep cross, to give Blackpool that all important goal to take into half time.

In the second half, Blackpool were more confident and ran out winners thanks to goals from Paul Simpson and Brett Ormerod, to give Blakpool an instant return Back to the second division.
