Blackpool 3-3 Leicester: Super Kev at the double
Published 22:05 21/03/12 By MirrorFootball
Ian Holloway hailed old stager Kevin Phillips after he netted in stoppage time to snatch Blackpool a draw.
The 38-year-old hitman side=footed home his second of the game from Tom Ince's cross to move the Seasiders into fifth spot.
Jermaine Beckford's double seemed certain to land Leicester a rare away win and put a dent in the home side's promotion hopes, but Phillips 17th of the season rescued a precious point.
Holloway said: "He doesn't surprise me that he got that goal. It doesn't matter how old you are. But I would have felt robbed if we had lost that."
It was the veteran frontman that started the scoring. Ince's deep corner found him lurking in the box and his header beat a defender on the line in the 33rd minute.
But Blackpool were not ahead for long.
Danny Drinkwater threaded a pass in behind the Seasiders defence and Beckford set off like a hare to slot his shot past the advancing Matt Gilks.
Dave Nugent found himself unmarked at a corner to head Leicester ahead only for sub Roman Bednar to level.
But that was not the end of the drama. Ben Marshall raided the right flank to cross for Beckford to beat Gilks with a header only for Phillips to pop up again at the death.
Livid Leicester manager Nigel Pearson moaned: "It is another two points thrown away. The last two goals we conceded were just not good enough."
