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."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
