Blackpool were eager to get the game underway and to avoid the reputation as the comeback kids, they intended on scoring first early on but this was not the case as Mossley defended gallantly with Blackpool limited to shots on goal. However tempers did flare with a slanging match between players, very confrontational. But Blackpool went out and played their own game, certainly a lot better than last week which was dire. Blackpool finally got their break with a very neat move and a great combination between Hayes and Wright for Blackpool. 1-0, the first half didn’t really trouble Blackpool.
With the surface slick and wet, just how many men like it, Blackpool created some fantastic moves in the second half where the team were playing ten times better than they were last tine against Keswick. More chances were created in the second half, mostly for Blackpool however it seemed that the score line was content on staying at 1-0 as Blackpool were fighting like beavers to find a second, that was until Wright unleashed his weapon and banged home his second and Blackpool’s second. This put Blackpool in a more comfortable position and with A. Mortimer and Pasqualino very disciplined in the heart of the midfield nothing was getting through. Blackpool were playing as happy as Larry and possibly for the first time this season they were enjoying their hockey, then the move of the game came as the ball worked its way down the left with quick passing to eventually end up to Wright to score his 3rd, he went forgot this game nor let other people forget it! With the game pretty much put to bed Hayes then got in on the act and scored a classic Hayes goal to wrap up the game.
A much disciplined 4-0 win, certainly a very good game for Blackpool who were a different side than they were last week and possibly the season, this game a major turning point for Blackpool.
