Carling Cup - Meaningless?
Well, whoever said that The Carling Cup was meaningless? Barnsely beat Blackpool in a fantastic, end to end game, eventually on penalties after the best game of football I've seen in a very long time.
Scott Vernon equalised twice for The Seasiders, one in normal time, the other in the last minute of extra time to cancel out The Tykes' goalscorers Robbie Williams (from the spot) and Martin Devaney. Tommy Wright also missed a second half penalty just before Williams scored
his in a bizarre couple of minutes.
The crowd were absolutely superb all night long, and they urged The Pool on, but it wasn't enough in the penalty shoot out.
Blackpool took the first penatly at the Kop End
Barnsely won 4-2 on penalties.
Sorry the report is short, I'll try and do a more extensive one tommorrow.
