What an end to an entertaining game! Blackpool were better than Wimbledon and we rode our luck at times again, but Cox playing further forward was much improved and got him his goal and we never gave up. Some were flagging towards the end but that's to be expected given how recently they've come back into the fold and three games in a week.

Oxley 8 Brilliant penalty save and two other top saves, but could have reacted a little quicker for the first and a similar incident just after.
Demetriou 7 Good defensively, couldn't see the penalty incident clearly but has to be careful in those situations.
Ferdinand 5 The weak link and they clearly targeted him as Wimbledon did on Tuesday. So slow that every time he takes a few steps out of position he creates a problem. Woeful for their goal.
Kyprianou 8 Tidied up very well at the back and looked a far better player than Ferdinand.
Timlin 7 Hugely improved on midweek, he was more disciplined and better positioned.
Wright 7 Worked hard though he drifted too central at times and left Demetriou exposed.
Leonard 9 My man of the match, covered every blade of grass and won every tackle, best I've seen of him this season.
Wordsworth 7 Took his goal very well, creative but looked tired later on.
McLaughlin 7 Started very brightly but tired very quickly second half and had treatment after going off, hopefully nothing serious.
Cox 8 Didn't drop as deep and was much more threatening, creative and took his goal superbly.
Ranger 6 Exhausted and distracted by the pressure, not as imposing as usual and trying too hard to do something special.

Subs
Fortune 7 Gave everything to win his place back, overdid it on one or two occasions.
White 7 Solid and reliable.
Robinson 5 Not watching the ball, too weak and ran into dead ends.

Another game where we played well for spells but at others were fortunate to even be in the game. If we're picking points up then that's okay, but performances need to be more consistent.

Would be quite happy to see White come in for Ferdinand as he was the weakest link yet again, most concerning was that his positioning was poor which isn't physical, but a rest may do him some good.

Great win against a good side, not made any easier by the referee, and very positive that we are making a habit of grinding out results at home.
