Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer said:

“I'm really pleased with the fact we've got four (clean sheets) on the bounce away from home. It was a great effort.

"I didn't think we played particularly well first-half and we said that to them at half-time. At half-time it wasn't acceptable. In the second-half we came out and had more of a go and then obviously you have the major talking point. From then on it galvanised us a bit more and we could have nicked something at the end, maybe. When you go down to ten men you're happy to then take a point.”
