Ince reckoned the result was about right over the piece as Blackpool stretched their unbeaten run to five games, leaving them four points above the relegation zone.

"I think on the balance of play it could have gone either way," said Ince. "They got a chance right at the last minute but on the possession and stats we were by far the better side.

"At the end of the day we haven't got beat, it's another point and another building block before we face Brighton on Saturday.

"The fight to avoid relegation is madness. You'd hope it'd calm down a bit but it hasn't and it seems to be the teams below us who are picking up points against top teams.

"Anyone can beat anyone in this league, but since I've been playing football I've never seen a league as close as this. It'd be hard to take if anyone went down on 55 points.

"There are a lot of teams down there, and we need to do what we need to do to get some breathing space.

"But it's great, it's exciting and it was important not to lose this game - I said to the lads if you can't win it, don't lose it."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
