Blackpool 2nds continue in bad run of form.
This week the 2nds squad felt the pinch with a few important players either needed elsewhere or unavailable through injury.
This was obvious from the start of the match on Saturday as Didsbury had the push and attacked straight from the off. The botched together Blackpool defence struggled to keep goalie Kilshaw protected and inevitably the Didsbury goal came not long after.
Blackpool regrouped and the introduction of Chris hocking into the game gave some much needed stabilisation to the home side. Even though Martin Hayes was upfront all alone Blackpool sneaked a few creative chances past the much older Didsbury defence but nothing was to come of it.
Two quick goals came late in the second half. The first of which from a short corner and the second open play. A quick one two from the wing back into the centre left Josh Hughes alone at centre back and unable to cope with the Didsbury attack.
Blackpool went into the break 3-0 down and some performances that weren’t all that great. Centre back Matt Atherton was pushed up along side Jack Boniface into the middle of the pitch to hopefully inspire Blackpool to claim at least one back. The best chance for the home side was worked between Hayes and Boniface at the top of the area and a short was awarded. A unrehearsed side let the chance slip and the away team pilled on the pressure yet again and as before Blackpool conceded an unnecessary goal.
4-0 and stand in captain Kilshaw will be hoping to inspire and motivate his team for what looks like a tough away fixture next week.
