Coventry 2-1 Blackpool

Two goals in four second-half minutes saw Coventry come from behind to defeat Blackpool.

DJ Campbell slotted Blackpool in front after Ben Burgess' misplaced pass ricocheted into his path.

But Guillaume Beuzelin levelled from just inside the box and Freddy Eastwood and Clinton Morrison combined to tee up Michael Mifsud to score from 12 yards.

Blackpool's Shaun Barker had a volley saved by Kieran Westwood and a header cleared off the line by Chris Wynter.

Coventry manager Chris Coleman:
"It was a dreadful first half for us.

"It was a grey, windy day and I think some of the players thought it didn't matter because we'd only lost one in eight before this game.

"So we had to explain to them at half-time in no uncertain terms that it wasn't all OK."

Blackpool caretaker boss Tony Parkes:
"Our keeper did not have any saves to make apart from the two goals and I know their manager has admitted they were lucky.

"On another day DJ Campbell could have had three goals. He's bright and he leads the line well."

On Campbell's disallowed goal: " All players say they were onside and he said he was not offside."
