Blackpool   0 - 0   Derby

Blackpool recorded their third successive draw after failing to break down a stubborn Derby defence.

Derby had the better chances in the early stages but Alex Baptiste blazed over from 12 yards for the home side.

Blackpool created the best move of the half when Charlie Adam found space to hit an 18-yard shot which forced a fine save from Rams keeper Stephen Bywater.

He easily kept out Brett Ormerod's long-range effort, while Miles Addison and Luke Varney headed over for Derby.


Blackpool boss Ian Holloway:
"I cannot fault our commitment and there were many many positives out of this game.

"But I've got new faces in. These lads don't really know each other and what to expect of each other on the field.

"Jay Thomas, who came on in the second half, hasn't even trained with us. That is not ideal."

Derby boss Nigel Clough:

"I'm very pleased, it was a much improved performance.

"Kris Commons did really well and our keeper Steve Bywater made a superb stop to keep us in the game. The whole side looked a lot sharper.

"I thought we missed out on a few free-kicks around the Blackpool penalty area but with the improvement I feel we are well set up for Saturday's game."
