Blackpool   3 - 0   Sheff Utd

Blackpool v Sheffield United

Blackpool 3-0 Sheffield United

Blackpool continued their fine recent form with a convincing victory against struggling Sheffield United.

On-loan centre-half Marcel Seip gave the hosts the lead on the hour after rising to meet David Vaughan's corner.

Jason Euell capped a flowing move from Ian Holloway's side to make it 2-0 nine minutes later before Charlie Adam drilled home with eight minutes left.

Darius Henderson and Matt Kilgallon both missed good chances but the visitors struggled to get going.

Blackpool stay in the play-off places following the victory and remain unbeaten at home this season, while United have now gone five league games without a win.


Blackpool manager Ian Holloway on rotating his squad:
"I always try to make changes, because I believe I have now got a squad with strength in depth.

"The new lads took us in at 0-0 and the guys who came on made a difference. We weathered the storm and stepped it up.

"I'll carry on with my policy of making changes, because each match in the Championship is horses for courses."

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell:

"We are going through a bad time, but I feel our work ethic is good and the spirit is there.

"Things didn't go for us when it mattered. We were the better side in the first half, but the first goal made a difference and Blackpool got on top.

"I've got injuries. But things will start to happen, I'm not worried."
