Alex Rae (l): Happy Blackpool could stop their losing run

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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
