Blackpool's Vital View

Blackpool's Vital View

According to the lyrics of a famous song 'You go and save the best for last`. And judging by the performance I witnessed from the Seasiders at the Liberty Stadium they certainly did that in their final League game of this campaign.

The ground itself is a wonderful setting for a crucial end of season game where both teams were in need of all three points. The 1200 loyal Blackpool fans in a crowd of over 18, 000 were never intimidated and added to the occasion with their non stop support for the Tangerines.

The game itself started at an incredible pace. Andy Morrell dragged a shot wide after two minutes, before Iriekpen rose unchallenged to put the Swans ahead. Clever interplay by Jorgensen and Parker saw Morrell put the Pool level, and minutes later we took the lead through a Keigan wonder strike.

The second half started in similar fashion to the first with Swansea finding the net twice inside ten minutes. However the game`s defining moment was probably when Lee Trundle missed a penalty awarded when the scores were level at 2-2.

If ever a side could claim to epitomise the word 'resilient` then I was watching it. Jorgensen, Southern and Hoolahan took charge of proceedings in the middle and in the space of four scintillating minutes we had come from behind to take the lead, through Morrell`s second and third goals.

A subliminal finish from the master marksman and a classy lob from Keigan ended the scoring in what was a fantastic advertisement for third tier football. Hopefully the momentum of seven consecutive league victories will now continue into the play-offs next week.
