Just five days after eventually dismissing Huddersfield the Blues were back in Cup action at Bloomfield Road.
For Paul Stewart it was a sentimental return home to the club which had launched him on his career.
Blackpool came very close to causing an upset as they snatched a 2nd half lead, but that gritty resilience City had revealed in previous cup ties once more came to the surface when in a desperate late goalmouth flurry, Paul lake forced the ball in for the equaliser.

  1. Blackpool scorer was Richard Sendall,travesty that City’s goal was allowed to stand. They kicked seven shades of sh– out of a prostrate Keith Walwyn until the ball hit the net. Referee bottled it,and didn’t fancy the thought of running for his life across the pitch pursued by angry City fans!!
