Blackpool took the lead early on from a Steve Whitley strike only for this to be cancelled out by a Brooklands equaliser from a reverse stick shot from 6 yards out, the home side continued to counter-attack and were extremely unlucky for not grab a second goal before the half time interval.
Blackpool came out from the interval with a spring in their step as again pressure on the away side left chances going begging. Liam Morrow completed an excellent run to put the ball across the goal for Dave Morgan to smash the ball home. But again soon after the visitors grabbed another equaliser from a well executed drag flick from a penalty corner. Blackpool continued to attack but unfortunately the final pass was never taken and the away side soaked up the pressure to hold Blackpool to a draw. A much improved performance from a Blackpool side that have had some bad luck of recent.
