Blackpool 2-2 Crystal Palace: The Sunday Mirror match report
Published 20:48 20/03/10 By MirrorFootball
Ben Burgess won a late point for Blackpool to deny Crystal Palace victory.
Seasiders boss Ian Holloway made a number of changes after two straight defeats, with on-loan Everton defender Seamus Coleman making his debut.
Ian Evatt, Stephen Dobbie and Barry Bannan also started while Palace manager Paul Hart made three changes to the side which lost 1-0 at home to Leicester in midweek.
The Eagles raced into a third-minute lead when a cross from the left by Lee Hills was met by Nick Carle, who fired into the bottom-left corner.
Palace established a two-goal cushion with Ambrose’s 18th goal of the season – a clinical right-footed shot after a Danny Butterfield throw-in.
Holloway replaced Stephen Husband with Burgess in the 37th minute and moments after the restart Charlie Adam collected a pass from Dobbie and drilled home a left-footed shot from 20 yards.
And with a minute left Burgess levelled matters from Evatt’s pass with a left-footed shot from six yards.
