Blackpool were needing to keep their winning streak up at home. Blackpool started the strongest but couldn’t break down a rugged defence but it finally came in the form of top goal scorer LAD Chris Hocking. Andrew Mortimer fired home the second and in the words of Alex Diver the floodgates were well and truly open from then on Jordan “Bring the” Payne made it three and the vice made it four soon after. This was impressive from Blackpool and it continued with the other half of the Payne made it five. This seemed to be a walk in Stanley Park for Blackpool, Simon Allen and Chris Hocking made it 7-0 before the half. The second half brought more joy for Blackpool with Jordan Payne grabbing his second and Simon Allen scored from a penalty flick which was greeted gratefully on the sidelines with the newly formed “Na na na na naaaaa Simon Simon Allen Simon Allen Simon Simon Allen” chant. This game really helped Blackpool in the goal difference department but Simon Thomas and JayJay Currey LAD inflicted more pain on the opposition. Great result for Blackpool this will surely put fear into the shoes of Bury and Keswick LAD.
