Blackpool 2-1 Hull
Ian Ashbee
Ashbee was on hand to equalise
Ben Burgess gave Blackpool victory over Hull with an stoppage-time goal but the win was overshadowed by an injury to Hull's 1m-signing Caleb Folan.

Folan, who joined from Wigan, was taken to hospital after he was stretchered off wearing a neck brace following a collision with Kaspars Gorkss.

Blackpool took the lead through Gary Taylor-Fletcher six-yard poke before Ian Ashbee equalised with a volley.

Burgess grabbed the winner when he headed home Keigan Parker's cross.

  • Hull boss Phil Brown on Folan's injury:
    "It was very worrying.

    "He appeared to be unconscious for a couple of minutes but he was talking as they led him out of the ground on a stretcher."

  • Blackpool boss Simon Grayson:
    "It was good to get that victory in before the international break.

    "Hull are a good side but we dug in and kept going when they were on top.

    "I decided to put on Ben Burgess to give their centre halves a bit more to do.

    "It also allowed Keigan Parker to move out to the right and get the crosses in which he did and Burgess did well to score a goal he really wanted against his old club."
