Blackpool 1
Barnsley 2
Gray (pen)

A trip to the seaside saw Mark Robins men put the robbed three points behind them from last weeks 'result' or what should have been a result at Plymouth Argyle. It wasn't going our way though with 5 minutes left on the clock, but a dramatic late show saw the reds bag two goals and claim the points.
And think reds fans should be booking the hotel for London, as I firmly believe that Robins can guide us to the play-offs this season.

Form wise we are the best in the division, his record his phenomenal since taking over at Oakwell. His reinvigorated team can take on anyone, and look forward to the test against Newcastle United at Oakwell next Saturday.

Two late goals from Bobby Hassell and Andy Gray gave the reds a brilliant 2-1 win at high-flying Blackpool.

Former Barnsley target Charlie Adam had claimed his seventh goal of the season with a 78th-minute penalty to put Blackpool on course for victory.

Hassell levelled in the 85th minute before Andy Gray fired home a penalty to win it for Mark Robins' side.

The Seasiders had a blow after just three minutes when striker Ben Burgess was replaced by Jason Euell.

And they nearly took the lead two minutes later when defender Neal Eardley collected possession and drove a 25-yard shot narrowly over the crossbar.

In the 12th minute they created another good chance when an outswinging corner from David Vaughan was connected with by defender Alex Baptiste, but his header from 12 yards flew just wide of the Barnsley goal, Blackpool looked positive and went close in the 14th minute through Euell.

The former Charlton striker fired a shot from 18 yards and Barnsley goalkeeper Luke Steele produced a brilliant save to managing to deflect the ball around his post.

The reds came to life mid way through the half when an Adam Hammill's corner was met by Emil Hallfredsson, whose 12-yard effort was well blocked by Baptiste.

Blackpool were dealt another injury blow just before half time when Clarke was forced off and replaced by on-loan Aston Villa youngster Barry Bannan.

Blackpool remained the dominant side after the restart but couldn't make it pay.

They created a clear opening in the 61st minute when Adam burst through the static Barnsley defence and drove a fierce 18-yard shot goalwards. Steele was in the right place as he made a fine save and was there again to deny Bouazza's follow-up effort.

Blackpool were finally broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute when Ryan Shotton was ajudged to have handled and Adam fired home left-footed from 12 yards into the bottom right corner.

Barnsley showed character yet again as we pulled level when Hassell headed in from Iain Hume's corner with five minutes left on the clock.

We came away with all three points in the 88th minute when Baptiste handled the ball, and Gray kept his cool to fire into the top corner from the spot, to send the travelling reds fans in rapturous joy. This brings us to the fringes of the play offs especially if we win at Plymouth (again!).
