Ebene News – GB – LIVE: Blackpool 1 Doncaster Rovers 0 – Simms strikes for Tangerines

Join us from Bloomfield Road as the Rovers visit play-off prospects in Blackpool Don’t forget to REFRESH regularly for the latest updates

BLACKPOOL: Maxwell; Gabriel, Ballard, Thorniley, husband, Garbutt; Turton, Dougall, Embleton; Yates, Simms Submarines: Moore, Anderson, Mitchell, Ekpiteta, Shaw, Holmes, Stewart

ROVERS: Jones; Wright, Anderson, Butler, Horton; Lokilo, Smith, James, Richards; Okenabirhie (Bogle 34), John-Jules Submarines: Bottomley, Amos, Greaves, Bostock, Coppinger, Sims

A very good quick passing move from Rovers leads Tyreece John-Jules to shoot over the bar for the first time from the edge of the box The rovers moved the ball very well through James and Richards before John-Jules was destroyed

It was all a bit too easy for Blackpool, which is a shame given how hard the Rovers worked to keep them out in these early stages

Tom Anderson was beaten to a head by Jerry Yates and Simms had pulled away from Andy Butler, taking him hard.He looked to place the ball in front of Louis Jones, who put one foot on it but failed could not prevent him from making a loop at the back of the net

Louis Jones blocks a shot from Jordan Gabriel at his near post Blackpool takes a bit of a lead here

The rovers have made a good start to this game in the way they deal with the ball They are under a lot of pressure from the Blackpool press, but they move the ball well on the pitch

Louis Jones breaks through his goal to fend off a 25-yard free kick from Luke Garbutt

A short corner routine from Rovers sees Taylor Richards send a ball low into the box that Tom Anderson first hits at the near post but sends it wide

Matt Smith delivers a low free kick from the right and he apparently only needs a touch from Tyreece John-Jules to get him on target, but he can’t hit it

And for the first time in his term, Andy Butler is naming the same starting XI as the previous match

Could Andy Butler actually name the same starting XI for consecutive games for the first time in his reign?

For the first time, he should have the opportunity to do so, not having reported any new injury issues

With such a positive performance at Rochdale under the belts at Rovers, it doesn’t seem necessary for him to do so, especially after taking three of his four forwards midway through the second half

I must admit watching the rain pour down in Doncaster on the Monday public holiday made me fear the fate of tonight’s game

Having arrived in Blackpool in February to find that the set-up was being postponed due to the most waterlogged of all terrains, a repeated trip did not generate the most enthusiasm

Fingers crossed this one starts and ends tonight God knows when they’d rearrange it if it wasn’t
