Wingers win it for Pool
August 21, 2012
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.
