Blackpool started well and with some confidence as youngsters Josh Payne and Oli Smith held the ball well and commanded some of the play and despite Prescot going 1-0 up from a short corner and then minutes later conceeding a second Blackpool continued to move the ball well and some threatening play by brothers James and Andrew Bamford allowed Blackpool some opportunities which brought about a short corner but a David Keats-Croft strike went wide.
After the break some of Blackpool’s play started to come together with Matt Atherton linking in well with Alex Rowe and Adam George, however a very physical Prescot found further momentum to score a third after a fine save from Craig Nuttall in goal but again Blackpool continued to pile on the pressure. After a foot in the circle Blackpool gained a short corner and duly converted with a direct strike on goal to make it 3-1. However Prescot stepped up a gear to find a fourth and then the Blackpool heads went down. In the last ten minutes Prescot added three more to the tally but the scoreline did not reflect the play as the away side battled hard but came up against a very experienced and physical team.
