Sky Bet Championship: Yeovil Town 1-0 Blackpool

This live event has finished


  • Yeovil Town pick up back-to-back wins for the first time this season
  • Ben Mitchell reports from Huish Park
  • Sorry for the (very) late start - technical problems affected our web network
  • Yeovil Town win 1-0 thanks to 21st minute strike by John Lundstram
  • The visitors finish with 8 men after 3 Blackpool players sent off in injury time.



One of those clichéd 6 pointers at home to Charlton on Saturday for Yeovil then, and on this form it should be a cracker. Full match report to follow.


Blackpool meanwhile are still well placed in the play offs, which makes it even more of a handy result for the home side.


The result leaves the Glovers 2 points from safety depending on the result of the late kick off between Reading and Charlton. It's currently 1-0 to Reading.


It's going to be a long journey home for those hardy 450 odd visiting fans.


Yeovil see out the final few seconds to pick up their second win in 4 days after crazy scenes in injury time.


Extraordinary scenes as Blackpool are reduced to 8 men after Gary MacKenzie picks up a second yellow for clattering Miller.

Ricardo Fuller isn't long in joining him as an off the ball incident sees him pick up a straight red. 4 minutes added.


Broadfoot scythes down Hoskins and picks up his second booking in a few minutes and is off for a bath a few minutes early.


Michael Chopra is played in down the right but slashes his shot over the bar.


Out of nothing Blackpool almost equalise as Ricardo Fuller volleys a long ball just wide from the left side of the box. That was close.


Gary MacKenzie hauls down Miller after a powerful move and picks up a yellow. Upson is also booked for a tackle in the previous passage of play.


Kirk Broadfoot clatters Sam Hoskins who got to the ball just ahead of him.



Ed Upson plays Ishmael Miller in on the right hand corner of the box and his poweful strike bends just wide of the post.



Blackpool have had some decent opportunities as well with Steven Davies heading narrowly over a couple of minutes ago.


Ed Upson has also seen a stunning 25 yard volley thunder back of the bar in the 68th minute.


Just over 10 minutes to go here as John Lundstram's first half strike for Yeovil still separates the sides.
