Blackpool   1 - 1   Cardiff

Ian Evatt rescued a point for Blackpool against visitors Cardiff City in an open, exciting game at Bloomfield Road.

Michael Chopra gave Cardiff a 12th-minute lead when his shot deflected in off Rob Edwards.

But just before half-time, centre-back Evatt curled an equaliser into the far corner beyond Cardiff's David Marshall.

Both sides could have won it at the end when Marshall's superb save denied Alex Baptiste, before Cardiff defender Mark Hudson missed from three yards.

A hard-fought away point came at a cost for Cardiff, who lost Ross McCormack, Paul Quinn and Stephen McPhail to injury at a rain-soaked Bloomfield Road.

606: DEBATE

McCormack looked the more serious, the Scotland striker pulling up sharply with a problem to his left hamstring as he chased a through-ball and having to be stretchered off.

Then in the second half the Bluebirds lost first midfielder McPhail, followed by Quinn after the defender took a heavy knock.


Blackpool manager Ian Holloway:
"I think we played very well against a side tipped for the top. I have shown the lads how we must get forward and it is lovely to see your great big defender curling a goal in like that.

"We deserved three points today but so far we have only got two points from two games and that means one thing - points lost.

"We will be working on our set pieces which is something we have not looked at enough. I have apologised to the lads for that.

"It's a great feeling being back in football and I was on the edge of my seat, especially at the end."

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones:
"We looked a little bit tired, a bit jaded, a long coach journey with the same team (that played in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night).

Jones reflects on Blackpool draw

"Ollie's (Holloway) made probably seven changes... we're playing the same players, we're playing players who have been ill.

"It wasn't the best we've played but to come away with a point is hard-earned.

"We've dug deep, the keeper (Marshall) has made a couple of good saves near the end but, having said that, we should have... had a few more goals."
