Blackpool Push City Nearer To League One

Two late goals gave Blackpool all the points at Ashton Gate while City sank to another defeat pushing them ever closer to League One.

City are now just three points above the relegation zone after making this their sixth game without a win.

Derek McInnes had to make five changes to his side because of injuries, Chris Wood and Jon Stead lead the attack, Joran Spence and Louis Carey were back in defence and with Kalifa Cisse, Cole Skuse and Marvin Elliott all missing, Bolton midfielder Sean Davis made his debut.

City looked like they were up for this one in the early stages of the game, Richard Foster fired just wide of the upright while Stead went through and tested the keeper Matt Gilks who made a good stop.

Gilks again denied Stead but the City striker was to get his goal in the end when he turned in the box and put his effort into the bottom corner, it was his first goal for the club in the league so far this season.

Wood could have added a second for the home side but Gilks again was on hand to make the all important save.

After the break it was a different story Kevin Phillips almost equalised from a free kick, but the ball went just wide.

And after Albert Adomah had missed a good chance at the other end, Blackpool levelled the game with a goal from a free kick taken by Ince who saw his effort deflect past David James.

Adomah tried the spectacular when he tried a overhead kick and Gilks was still in unbeatable form as he denied Wood with a header from just six yards out.

James fingertipped a shot from Ince to safety, but with six minutes left on the clock he beat James with a tap in at the far post after good work from Ormerod.

And when Phillips added a third late on for the visitors, it was all over for City.
