Tom Ince's second-half equaliser earned Blackpool a point against Leeds at Bloomfield Road.

Leeds defender Lee Peltier headed the visitors in front from Danny Pugh's cross midway through the first half.

Ince's shot deflected off Marius Zaliukas to bring the Seasiders level with his seventh of the season.

Kirk Broadfoot was sent off for a lunge at Zaliukas in added time, Blackpool's ninth red card of the season.

Peltier opened the scoring, heading his first goal for Leeds, but Blackpool took control in the second half and Ince's powerful drive hit Zaliukas, flying past Leeds goalkeeper Paddy Kenny.

Leeds felt Broadfoot should have been sent off for his challenge on Ross McCormack.

But even though the hosts were dominant in the closing stages, they struggled to create chances that troubled Kenny, and their chances of a win were effectively ended when Broadfoot was shown a straight red card for his tackle on Zaliukas.

Blackpool assistant Alex Rae:

"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."

Leeds manager Brian McDermott:

"Overall we're happy, sometimes you go away from home and be solid and we've done that.

"We've kept the points ticking over away from home and we move on to Nottingham Forest."
