Blackpool seconds travelled to Formby on the back of their win in the opening week, however they failed to bring any points back home losing 2-0 even though they dominated the match.
Blackpool stared on top, moving the ball round well with Formby allowing them far too much space.
After failing to convert the possession where it matters, the game quickly changed around as Formby came back into the game, pressing the Blackpool defence.
As the half drew to a close, Blackpool were hit on the break and Formby forced a penalty corner. A powerful strike left the Blackpool defence stranded, and took the home side into the break with a slight advantage.
The second half picked off where the first had ended, however Blackpool began to show an increased urgency to bring them back into the match. Captain Sam Owen pushed more men forward in an attacking move, but Blackpool were still unable to find the back of the net.
Sam Robinson and Martin Hayes linked up well with a one-two but after the shot what cleared off the line by what appeared to be a foot, yet no penalty flick given, luck didn’t appear to be with the visitors. Formby struck once again via a penalty corner again much to frustration of the Blackpool defence who were doing a excellent job keeping the Formby forwards away from goal in open play.
A final push in the final ten minutes saw plenty of attacking play from Josh Boyne and Rob Pasqualino, but still without joy in front of goal.
A disappointing result in the end despite a solid performance. Blackpool head into next week’s fixture wondering how they can convert their possession into goals.
