Blackpool came into the match on a run of two defeats from their last three at home in the Championship but they did miss chances - Kirk Broadfoot should have done better with his first-half header while Ince fired just wide soon after his equaliser.

And assistant Rae was full of praise for Ince while admitting that the Seasiders squad is set for a major shake-up in January.

"We told them to be patient and tried to switch the play plenty, which is where we got plenty of joy," said Rae.

"Ince has come up with a great goal. He took plenty of stick from the Leeds fans and he showed good temperament to ignore it and make a decisive contribution.

"There's not been a drop of confidence with recent results and I think that was evident. We've got a good home record and we always feel strong and confident at home.

"We've got a few loan deals that will expire in the next week or so and that will change our squad a fair bit so we'll look to bring some players in and set ourselves up for the New Year.

"It was important that we stopped the run we were on and I was pleased with our response to going a goal down."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
