Big Match Revew - Plymouth 0 Blackpool 2

Plymouth Argyle 0-2 Blackpool
Saturday March 27, Home Park, (Att: 10,614)

Two goals in four second half minutes were enough for Blackpool to keep alive their play-off ambitions and put a big dent in Plymouth's Championship survival hopes.

The home side had the better of the opportunities in the first period and arguably should have taken the lead.

Bradley Wright-Phillips twice denied by a combination of goalkeeper and defence after some good work on the right hand side by Jamie Mackie.

Pool improved after the interval though and were infortunate not to go in-front when Charlie Adam's curling effort from outside the box struck the upright and bounced away to safety.

However, the Lancashire side's top scorer wasn't to be denied his 16th goal of the season. Adam picked up a neat backheel from Stephen Dobbie to fire the ball low past David Stockdale in the Plymouth goal.

That was with just 12 minutes remaining, and not long after the Seasiders had sealed the points. This time Adam's ball through unleashing Dobbie to cooly smash home.

The game was up for Plymouth - who look increasingly likely to be relegated. However, a happy return to Home Park keeps Ian Holloway and Blackpool in touch with the top six.
