Blackpool travelled to Manchester with a young side, giving Declan O’Hara his first start for the 1st team, a rare apperance from Mike Ashfield together with Sam Goudie who is settling into the side.
Dave Morgan was suffering from flu so only came on the pitch when Richard Blacow injured himself. There was a spirited performance, especially from the defence, and the game was 1-1 with minutes to go, following an earlier Ashfield goal.
As in the corresponding home fixture, Brooklands were awarded a late short corner and managed to score giving them the win.
Dan Woodman was awarded Man of the Match for his defensive work coupled with his roams down the right wing. Blackpool stay bottom of Division 3 but have the ability to avoid relegation with nine games still remaining.
