Blackpool   1 - 1   Preston

Blackpool 1-1 Preston

Blackpool 1-1 Preston

Blackpool moved into the play-off places after collecting a point in a draw against local rivals Preston.

The home side took the lead after just 27 seconds when Billy Clarke smashed a fine 20-yard strike past Andy Lonergan.

Clarke twice struck the woodwork in the first half but Preston equalised in the 38th minute when Ross Wallace curled a fine left-footed 20-yard free-kick.

Blackpool came close to snatching a winner in injury time, but Ian Evatt's header was straight at Lonergan.


Blackpool boss Ian Holloway on Preston's equaliser:
"There was a blatant foul on Marcel Seip just beforehand and what he (the referee) gave that free-kick for I do not know.

"But other than that, I thought we were fantastic and I thought it was a moral victory for Blackpool over Preston, even though there is a long way still to go this season.

"I'm very proud of my team, my ground, my pitch and the way we tried to play. If that's my first taste of this derby then I can't wait for a few more."

Preston manager Alan Irvine on Ross Wallace's celebration which lead to a booking:
"If we start to take celebration out of the game then it will be a poorer game.

"Ross ran over to our fans but I can't tell from here whether he stepped off the pitch or stayed on the pitch.

"But I certainly don't think that he was jumping over barriers to get to our supporters. Our supporters understandably reacted in a very excited way and I believe that a steward got injured, which I'm extremely sorry to hear.

"I hope he's okay but I don't think Ross did an awful lot wrong."
