A packed Bloomfield Road witnessed what was at times a drab affair which was packed with stoppages, disallowed goals, but Pool class shone through with three class finishes separating the two sides.
The first half was similar to the first leg`s first half with both teams struggling to get the ball down on the park and play, but it was the Seasiders took the lead halfway through the first 45. Parker and Morrell contrived to place Southern in a great position to shoot, although other options were on for the midfielder, he stuck from 20 yards in to the bottom corner.
The goal was against the run of play, after the Latics had caused a bit of concern for the Pool back four in the opening 20. The lead could have been doubled with a Williams free kick which whistled wide, Liddell also had a opportunity to score from a set piece, his effort whistled over the bar.
After the break the Latics came out taking the match to the home team but all they managed was a disallowed Liddell goal, the winger finished from close range but flagged for offside.
Pool then more of less sealed the tie, Hoolahan supplying Morrell from the left, the former Cov striker dinked the ball over the on rushing Blayney. Oldham set up a bit of a grandstand finish managing to scramble the ball over the line. Substitute Wolfenden heading in from the aftermath of a Wellens freekick.
Tempers were pushed towards the end of the match, Gregan (past it) squaring up to Parker, but the small Scott had the last laugh curling in from the angle to seal the tie. Gregan`s antics at the full time whistle with Parker were embarrassing for the lumbering centre back.
Adrian Forbes had a goal disallowed for offside and to round it off the away side had a potential second goal also disallowed.
Overall, a professional performance once again, Pool being the better side over the two legs with the fire power from the tangerines being the main difference.
