Report: Blackpool 2 Plymouth Argyle 2

Late Stunner From Tilt Secures Point

30 March 2019

A spectacular overhead kick from Curtis Tilt saw Blackpool come back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Plymouth Argyle in stoppage time.

The centre-back found himself in the right position to pull off a world class finish in the 92nd minute and salvage a point from an out of sorts team display.

The comeback was initially started by left-back Marc Bola, who started the late rally with an 84th minute volley into the bottom corner.

Manager Terry McPhillips stuck with the same side and bench that recorded a 4-1 victory at Bradford City the previous week, yet The Seasiders found themselves behind after just four minutes.

Ruben Lameiras found himself some space out wide for the visitors and clipped the ball across the six-yard box for Freddie Ladapo to convert.

It as proving to be an out of sorts start to the game from a Blackpool perspective, with no fluidity to any of the attacking play. An Antony Evans strike straight at the ‘keeper, then a header a minute later, was the best that the team could muster in the opening 25 minutes.

At the other end, Lameiras went close with a bobbling strike from 20-yards out, driven just wide of the post.

Matty Virtue, having found the net against Bradford, tried his luck from the edge of the area but was thwarted by Matt Macey. Armand Gnanduillet also glanced wide from a short corner.

Half-Time: Blackpool 0 Plymouth Argyle 1

Despite a much-improved performance from Blackpool being required after the interval, it was Plymouth who went close to doubling their advantage. Antoni Sarcevic pounced on an error from Jay Spearing and powered a 25-yard effort just wide.

The Seasiders continued to struggle in attacking areas, failing to get in behind the Plymouth defence or down the flanks.

Meanwhile, it took a superb block from Ben Heneghan to prevent Jamie Ness from finding the bottom corner with a strike from eight-yards.

In an attempt to change the outcome of the game, Nya Kirby and Chris Long were both introduced off the bench for Antony Evans and Nathan Delfouneso.

However, just two minutes later, Plymouth increased their lead. Graham Carey swung a free-kick into the box and Ryan Edwards towered above his man to head in.

Armand Gnanduillet chested the ball down and into the path of Matty Virtue as the side chased a way back, but he blasted wide.

Then, it almost got worse for Blackpool, after Graham Carey was afforded the opportunity to take a free-kick in a dangerous area. He whipped the ball round the wall and struck the outside of the post.

It proved a lifeline for Pool and was swiftly followed by Marc Bola pulling a goal back. The left-back, on his right foot, found the bottom corner on the volley.

Five minutes of added time were signalled, leading to Curtis Tilt expertly finishing with an overhead kick, sending Bloomfield Road into raptures.
