Martin Bullock's golden goal booked Blackpool a return to the Millennium Stadium as the snatched a place in the final of the LDV Vans Trophy.

Blackpool, who won last season's Third Division play-off final in Cardiff, rocked the home side with a goal 13 minutes into extra time.

Up to that point, it had always looked like Huddersfield who were heading for the final.

They quickly cancelled out a 3-1 first leg deficit, courtesy of first-half goals from Clyde Wijnhard and Danny Schofield.

Wijnhard fired home from the penalty spot after only four minutes following a foul on Schofield by goalkeeper Paul Barnes.

Schofield then levelled the aggregate scores with a superb goal, turning on the edge of the area and curling home an unstoppable left-foot shot.

It was all Huddersfield after that, but Wijnhard wasted a glorious chance to score a third for the home side when he headed straight at Barnes when unmarked from six yards out.

Steve McMahon's side hung on to force extra time and then struck as the home side ran out of steam.

Gareth Evans hesitated as he attempted to deal with a routine cross and, as the ball bounced off his thigh, Bullock pounced to rifle home the winner.

Huddersfield: Margetson, Evans, Gray, Clarke, Jenkins, Armstrong, Heary, Holland, Hay, Wijnhard, Schofield. Subs: Phillip Senior, Moses, Irons, Mattis, Macari.

Blackpool: Barnes, Jaszczun, Marshall, Day, Coid, Hills, Wellens, O'Kane, Bullock, John Murphy, Taylor. Subs: Hughes, Simpson, Pullen, Collins, Walker.

Referee: S Mathieson (Stockport)
