A winning draw? Blackpool 1-1 City

I'm afraid I struggled to keep up with events at Bloomfield Road yesterday, even via Twitter as I and Mrs H were in the company of friends at a brilliant wedding

Nevertheless, grabbed snatches of news via Twitter, texts and the Sky Sports footie app, told me we'd gone ahead via a Don Cowie header, only to be pegged back to 1-1 via a Kevin Phillips "stunner" that he later admitted had been an intended cross. The BBC report is here.

Bloomfield Road is always a tough place to go - we didn't win there for something like 30 years until very recently, and before the match I'd have probably taken a point. But the news feeding back from both players and fans alike is that we truly deserved to win, so it's a shame that we didn't come away with all three points.

Malky seems to be shaping the side nicely, and showed some variation as he played 5 across midfield with Gunnarsson replacing Earnshaw.

Couple of tough games coming up now - both against Leicester, as we take them on in the beer cup on Wednesday, followed by the League match on Saturday.
