Blackpool vs Newcastle - MATCHFACTS

Goals: 0-1: Lovenkrands (17mins, received the ball from Barton and drilled a low shot into the bottom right-hand corner) 1-1: Campbell (32mins, flicked Adam's corner towards goal with his heel and eluded Enrique's attempted clearance on the line) Bookings: Tiote (55mins, foul), Evatt (90, ungentlemanly conduct) Referee: Martin Atkinson (Halifax) Had a number of controversial decisions to make, but got the vast majority spot on 7 Attendance: 16,005 Entertainment: *** BLACKPOOL (4-3-3): Gilks 6; Eardley 6, Baptiste 7, Evatt 6, Crainey 6; Southern 5, VAUGHAN 8, Adam 7; Phillips 7 (Varney 83), Taylor-Fletcher 6 (Puncheon 89mins), Campbell 7. Subs (not used): Kingson (gk), Cathcart, Reid, Ormerod, Beattie. NEWCASTLE (4-4-2): Krul: Made a number of important saves, and left his line superbly to thwart Campbell before the break 7 Simpson: Never gives less than 100 per cent, but was fortunate not to concede a penalty when he slipped 6 WILLIAMSON: Grew in influence as the game wore on and became increasingly dominant in the air 8 Coloccini: Maintained the high standards he has been displaying recently and was as confident and assured as ever 7 Enrique: Lacked some of his usual spark and was particularly lackadaisical as Campbell scored 5 Barton: Suffered one of those afternoons when things didn't really come off, but refused to be rattled 5 Tiote: Another Newcastle midfielder who was slightly below par conceded possession more than usual 5 Nolan: Failed to offer anything in attack, but his below-par display can be partly explained by a groin problem 4 Gutierrez: His usual combination of bright touches, promising running and questionable end product 5 Lovenkrands: Took his goal superbly and was Newcastle's only effective attacking outlet for much of the game 7 Ameobi: Struggled from the word go and never got to grips with either the Blackpool defence or the surface 4 Subs: Ireland (for Lovenkrands, 62mins): Looked bright enough in the final half-hour, but his touch still hasn't really returned 6 Perch (for Nolan, 86mins) Kuqi (for Ameobi, 90mins) (not used): Soderberg (gk), S Taylor, R Taylor, Ranger. Man Of The Match: DAVID Vaughan Charlie Adam has been getting all the plaudits this season, but the Wales international is almost as important to the way Blackpool play.
