Blackpool threw away two vital points by only drawing after going ahead by two goals twice during their home game against promotion hopefuls Liverpool Sefton.
Dave Morgan opened the scoring, continuing his good run of form. Sefton retaliated with a well taken shot from a tight angle narrowly beating Kilsaw in goal. However David Wright was patient with a chance in front of goal to blast a shot and ensure Blackpool were 2-1 in front at half-time.
Wright opened up a two goal gap after the break with a shot from an angle, but Sefton fought strongly and were awarded a sucession of short corners for a multitude of reasons. They finally converted one, but Blackpool answered by scoring on a counter-attack with Wright’s hat-trick coming from an extremely tight angle.
Sefton had an attack down the right which broke the defensive line leaving a striker unmarked to score easily and reduce Blackpool’s lead to one again.
Blackpool only had a few minutes left to keep possession and play the game out in safety, but no, they went for glory after an extra goal, proceeded to lose the ball and let Sefton hit it up to their strikers. The visiting umpire awarded a short corner for an infrigement and they duly converted for the equalizer for what would be the last strike of the game.
Final score 4-4 leaving the Blackpool players gutted. Their improbable escape from relegation now needs three back to back wins together with other results to go their way.
