After conceding a last minute goal to lose last week, Blackpool turned the tables on promotion changing Colwyn Bay with a last gasp winner of their own to win 2-1 at Stanley park.
For the second week in a row, Blackpool entered the half time break without either team breaking the deadlock. Both teams had chances with Nick Rainbow called into action twice inside the opening ten minutes with a pair of sharp saves. The home side threatened at the other end with Josh Payne finding the woodwork and Steve Whitley going close.
The second half saw the organised Welsh visitors take the lead, somewhat against the run of play. A firmly hit reverse stick strike got the better of Rainbow, much to the delight of the travelling support. Blackpool re-grouped and looked like the team most likely to score next, with Jay Currey making inroads down the right wing. Ian Swaine and Nathan Woodman both found themselves with shooting opportunities but were denied pulling the trigger with some smart tackling from the Colwyn back line. Blackpool edged closer and when Dave Morgan’s deflected effort from Rob Dingle’s pass narrowly clipped the wrong side of the post, it looked as though it could be one of those frustrating days.
Spurred on by a vocal home support, Blackpool continued to rotate their 16 strong squad to cause more headaches for their visitors. The mounting pressure finally told as Swaine found space at the top of the area and rifled his shot home for a well deserved equaliser.
This provided a much needed shot in the arm for Colwyn who until that point had been happy to cling on to their lead. Rob Abbott and Dec O’Hara stood firm against the resurgence, and as the final minutes ticked over the game was back in déjà-vu territory.
Banishing last weeks demons, man of the match O’Hara surged forward from the back and picked out Swaine in similar territory to his first goal. With just 32 seconds left on the clock, the striker picked his spot to help his side to a valuable 3 points.
