'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Blackpool 2 - Leeds United 1

Bloomfield Road

August 21, 2012

Attendance: 14,315

Wingers win it for Pool

Tom Ince and Matt Phillips off the bench provided the quality needed for Blackpool to turnaround a one-goal deficit against Leeds United.

Tom Lees had capitalised on poor defending from a corner to give the visitors the lead in the first half but after the break the introduction of Phillips and Nouha Dicko sparked a deserved comeback.

Dicko turned in a Stephen Crainey cross to level the scores before Ince found Phillips - who is expected to leave Bloomfield Road before the end of August - at the near post to guide beyond Paddy Kenny for the points.

It could've been more but for a plethora of missed opportunities, while Ludovic Sylvestre struck the bar with a venomous freekick late on.

It means Blackpool sit top of the Championship after two games with six points.
