Blackpool   1 - 2   Leicester

Blackpool 1-2 Leicester

Blackpool 1-2 Leicester

Leicester leapfrogged promotion rivals Blackpool to move into the Championship play-off places with a hard-fought win.

French forward Dany N'Guessan opened the scoring when he ran on to a diagonal pass from Martyn Waghorn and fired home left-footed from 12 yards.

Both sides had chances thereafter, but Lloyd Dyer made it 2-0 when he drilled home from Matty Fryatt's cross.

Scott Dobbie set up a frantic finale with a reply in the 89th minute from 20 yards, but Leicester held on.


Blackpool manager Ian Holloway:

"We looked a nice pretty team but we lost.

"The message that's going round the division is that if you get solid, you keep your shape against Blackpool, you might have a chance of beating them.

"I don't like playing at home at the moment.

"I don't like some of the decisions that are going against us at home but the results aren't down to the officials, it's our fault."

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson:

"I thought both sides tried to win the game and both played 4-3-3.

"I think Blackpool will be scratching their heads as to how they've not got something out of this game.

"If they could defend like they attack they would be top of the league."
