Match Commentary

94' FULL-TIME. Blackpool 3-2 Cardiff. The second half didn't quite live up to the first but incredible fighting spirit from Blackpool - twice they were behind and they battled back. Chopra lies disconsolate, while Ian Holloway looks emotional - he will be a Premier League manager next season. What a game, what a result. Comiserations to Cardiff, congratulations to the mighty Tangerines.
94' Amazing...Blackpool are in the Premier League. They started the season as relegation fodder and finished it by earning a place at the top table.
94' Gilks has it in his hands, he hoofs it clear and the whistle goes.
