Hoilett to the rescue
BLACKBURN 2 BLACKPOOL 2
Junior Hoilett's injury-time header earned a vital point for Blackburn in a breathless Premier League encounter. Visitors Blackpool were in total control at half-time after captain Charlie Adam, back from a two-game ban, had netted a contentious 25th-minute penalty and curled in a sublime free-kick four minutes later.
But Christopher Samba pulled a goal back for Blackburn just after half-time and their pressure finally paid off when Richard Kingson failed to get hands to a free-kick and Hoilett headed in. The result keeps both sides a point above the relegation zone, but Blackpool will know they missed a great chance to take a giant step towards safety.
