Heneghan and Pritchard On Target In Draw

29 January 2019

A late penalty from Harry Pritchard stretched Blackpool’s unbeaten run to four matches, as The Seasiders came back from behind twice to draw 2-2 with Wycombe Wanderers.

The midfielder stepped up to cancel out Alex McCarthy’s effort after debutant Nya Kirby had been fouled in the box.

Pool’s previous equaliser had come courtesy of Ben Heneghan, who headed in his first goal for the club after Adebayo Akinfenwa had given Gareth Ainsworth’s side an early lead.

Michael Nottingham and Liam Feeney both came into the starting line-up for the game, replacing Donervon Daniels and Nick Anderton.

The Seasiders were dealt a blow with just four minutes on the clock, when Jay Spearing came off worse from a fully committed challenge. The skipper tried his best to reach a short back pass and ended up picking up a knee injury.  

Things then went from bad to worse, as Adebayo Akinfenwa put the visitors ahead. The striker was left unmarked from a corner and headed in from six-yards out.

Nathan Delfouneso came within whiskers of equalising immediately for Blackpool, however his strike went agonisingly wide of the post.

At the other end, a smart near post run from Alex Samuel ended in the Wycombe man striking the side netting.

Samuel was nearly presented with a gift later on in the half, when a mix-up between Ben Heneghan and Christoffer Mafoumbi occurred. Luckily, the danger was averted.

A charged down clearance from Curtis Tilt led to Nick Freeman also having an effort prior to the interval, though it was comfortably saved by Mafoumbi.

Five minutes into the second-half, Blackpool brought themselves level. Jordan Thompson floated a corner into the box and Ben Heneghan was there to head in his first goal for The Seasiders.

Parity didn’t last long though, as Blackpool then conceded a second. A Joe Jacobson free-kick wasn’t dealt with at the near post, leaving Alex McCarthy to claim a decisive touch.

It resulted in The Seasiders making their second change of the game, with on loan Newcastle United striker Elias Sørensen handed his debut as a replacement for Liam Feeney.

Jordan Thompson and Armand Gnanduillet both had free-kicks to try and bring Blackpool level again, however one hit the wall and the other flew over the bar.

Nya Kirby became Blackpool’s third and final change of the evening, making his debut following a loan move from Crystal Palace earlier in the month.

The next chance fell to Wycombe though, as Joe Jacobson curled a free-kick wide of Mafoumbi’s left-hand post.

Suddenly, Blackpool had a chance to level in the 83rd minute when Kirby was brought down in the area by Paris Cowan-Hall. Harry Pritchard stepped up to take the spot-kick and fired in off the underside of the bar.

Cowan-Hall tried to make amends for Wycombe at the other end of the pitch, drilling just wide of the far post, while Ryan Allsop denied Nathan Delfouneso from close range.

Five minutes of added time were signalled, yet neither side could fashion a credible chance.
