[Archived] News Article -> 2012/13 Half-Time: Blackpool 1 Rovers 0

Recommended Posts

Rovers will feel aggrieved to be behind at the break after they have had the better of the first half at Bloomfield Road. Rovers have gone close to scoring through Rhodes and Vukcevic, but Blackpool lead thanks to Thomas' header.

The match started evenly, but Rovers nearly took the lead a quarter of an hour into the match when Rhodes ran onto Lowe's clearance, but was unable to beat Gilks with his left-footed finish. The Scotland forward ran onto the rebound and teed Vukcevic up and the midfielder's long-distance effort forced Gilks into another smart save.

Despite that pressure from the visitors, the home side took the lead shortly after when Thomas was able to steal in between Givet and Dann and head home Delfouneso's cross. It was hard on Rovers and it meant that Kean's first real action of the game was to pick the ball out of his own net.

The game opened up late in the half and Rovers were nearly level when Kazim-Richards managed to create space on the right and Gilks did well to prevent the ball falling to Vukcevic. The Montenegrin then went even closer when he controlled the ball on his chest before seeing his shot come back off the post.
