Blackpool   2 - 2   Crystal Palace

Blackpool v Crystal Palace

Blackpool 2-2 Crystal Palace

Ben Burgess's late goal earned a point for Blackpool and thrust Crystal Palace into the Championship relegation zone.

Lee Hills' cross from the left set up Nick Carle to fire Palace into an early lead, with Darren Ambrose doubling the lead from Danny Butterfield's throw.

Charlie Adam pulled one back for the home side just after the restart with a left-foot shot from 20 yards.

Blackpool went in search of a second with Adam and Gary Taylor-Fletcher going close before Burgess struck.


Blackpool boss Ian Holloway: "In the first-half we were like the Dog and Duck, in the second-half we were like Real Madrid.

"We can't go on like that. At full-time I was at them like an irritated Jack Russell and they deserved that.

"Some of the boys who I started with didn't put a shift in for Blackpool."

Crystal Palace manager Paul Hart told BBC London 94.9:

"It was certainly a game of two halves.

"Conceding early on in the second-half was a blow and it was always going to be a struggle for us from then.

"If you has asked me before the game if I had taken a draw, I probably would."
