Blackpool 1-1 Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster came from behind to draw 1-1 against fellow League One play-off hopefuls Blackpool.

Michael Nottingham's goal four minutes after the break handed the Tangerines the advantage, but Donny skipper Tommy Rowe dragged his side level with a sublime strike at Bloomfield Road.

Rovers, without suspended top scorer John Marquis, started the brighter as Danny Andrew's left-wing cross was stabbed wide by Alfie May inside 20 minutes.

Andrew's low ball to the back post was later blazed over by Ali Crawford, as Liam Feeney nodded Jordan Thompson's cross off-target for Blackpool.

The Tangerines could have gone ahead 10 minutes before the break after Feeney's exploits on the wing teed up a free Armand Gnanduillet, who curled the ball, inches over.

Gnanduillet rose highest in stoppage time to meet Thompson's corner but wasted the opportunity.

But the Tangerines took the lead not long after the restart when substitute Nottingham stabbed home on the rebound after Jay Spearing's corner was nodded onto the bar.

However, Rowe levelled for the Yorkshire side with a 73rd minute thunderbolt from the edge of the box, while Antony Evans drove at goal late on for the Seasiders and dragged a low effort wide as the spoils were shared.
