Dannen Francis shoots from the edge of the box after another good Seasiders play.

Arnold Matshazi has the ball in the back of the net for the second time as he lobs the keeper, but the flag is in an offside position.

Close to a second for Pool as Joe Strawn’s fierce drive deflects to the top corner, but Max Thompson gets up to make the save.

Arnold Matshazi beats the offside trap to hold on to a sublime crossing ball before sliding the ball past goalkeeper Max Thompson.

Jake Daniels kicks a ball across the face from the six-yard box, narrowly escaping Dannen Francis at the back post. Close for Blackpool.

The Seasiders chain two or three good passes together and force another corner. The move is also winning applause from supporters.

Joe Strawn is sent on the left for Blackpool. Max Thompson rushes out of Newcastle and gets to the ball first…right.

Newcastle have turned the screw in recent moments. They forced another corner.

The first shot of the match went to Newcastle’s Jay Turner-Cooke, whose curling effort from outside the box was well reversed by Alec McLachlan.

Newcastle have started to come back to it a bit in recent minutes. Otherwise, it was a suspicious opening.
