  • FT: Blackpool 3-0 Newcastle
  • John Murphy’s side in FA Youth Cup fifth round action at Bloomfield Road
  • Winners face a trip to Chelsea in the quarter finals

Simply superb from the young Seasiders, who were in complete control throughout. It sets up a mouthwatering trip to Chelsea in the quarter-finals.

Pool have four minutes remaining to see out a comfortable win.

Kwaku Donkor replaces Tyler Hill, who just went down with a knock.

James Harrison is Blackpool’s first change of the night, replacing Joe Strawn.

80 - GOAL BLACKPOOL!! (3-0)

Jake Daniels makes it three! The striker slots home into the empty net after keeper Max Thompson’s clearance fell straight to him.

Pool are off to Stamford Bridge!

Alex McLachlan comes rushing out of his goal, somewhat unwisely, but still manages to make a vital block.

Will Squires is shown a yellow card for a late challenge.

Pool are still controlling this well.

The young Seasiders are managing the game well here. They’re taking a breather when they can and taking the sting out of the game.

Newcastle look like they’re about to pull one back through substitute Josh Donaldson, but Alex McLachlan stands tall to make a wonderful save.

A brilliant bit of goalkeeping.

Dannen Francis chips a lovely ball over the defender’s head to Jake Daniels, but unfortunately his touch lets him down and Newcastle are able to clear.
