Fleetwood Town 0-0 Blackpool- Match Report

Fleetwood and Blackpool play out goalless draw at HighburyBlackpool and Fleetwood compounded each other's relegation fears as a damp squib of a Sky Bet League One Lancashire derby ended 0-0.Fleetwood bossed the opening exchanges but only fired long-range efforts at Colin Doyle's goal.The game came alive in the 20th minute when a mistake at the back opened things up for former Seasider Bobby Grant.His neat pass picked out the run of Wes Burns, the forward driving a low shot to the near post that was pushed away by Doyle.Blackpool's first shot on target against Fleetwood this season came 10 minutes before the break, Mark Cullen breaking down the left and testing Chris Maxwell at the near post but the Fleetwood keeper was equal to the challenge.The Seasiders thought they'd grabbed the lead when Jim McAlister jinked past the Fleetwood back line and his low shot was destined to find the far corner but Danny Philliskirk drew an offside flag as he helped it over the line.The game looked to have settled into a frustrating stalemate after the break, right up to the moment Jimmy Ryan's 20-yard drive struck the angle of the goalframe.That sparked Blackpool into life once more, Steven Jordan almost heading into his own net as the hosts were pushed back.A goalmouth scramble in the final minute of added time couldn't deliver a winner for Steven Pressley's men and a point apiece was not enough to raise survival hopes
