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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
