Delfouneso steps off bench to rescue Seasiders deep in injury time

Nathan Delfouneso stepped off the bench to score in added time and snatch a 2-2 draw for Blackpool against visitors Yeovil.

Delfouneso, in his first match back at Blackpool after rejoining from Swindon, tapped home from close range deep into stoppage time.

Yeovil took the lead after 34 minutes. Tom Eaves did well to hook the ball to the far post, where Francois Zoko beat his man to tap into an empty net.

Blackpool deservedly drew level in the 70th minute thanks to brilliant play by Delfouneso, who broke down the left and crossed for Kelvin Mellor to tap home at the far post.

Then, entirely against the run of play, Darren Ward slotted Yeovil ahead from 12 yards after goalkeeper Sam Slocombe could only parry Eaves' cross into his path.

But Blackpool denied the visitors in the fifth of nine added minutes as Delfouneso pounced to turn the ball home from two yards.





Blackpool had a good opportunity to go ahead after 22 minutes as Jamille Matt latched on to his own flick, breaking behind the defence but firing comfortably over as he tried to lob the keeper.
