Blackpool 2-2 Plymouth Argyle

A stunning overhead kick from Curtis Tilt rescued League One play-off chasers Blackpool a point in a dramatic draw at home to Plymouth.

The toothless Seasiders had trailed with six minutes to go following goals from Freddie Ladapo and Ryan Edwards.

But they turned on the style in the closing stages, with Marc Bola's goal setting up a grandstand finish.

The unlikely comeback was complete when Tilt smashed home in stoppage time.

The visitors had got off to a dream start when Ladapo converted a Ruben Lameiras cross in the fourth minute.

Lameiras shot just wide for the visitors after 26 minutes, before Jamie Ness blazed over from distance before the break as Plymouth kept up the pressure.

Edwards doubled the visitors' lead when he headed home Graham Carey's free-kick in the 73rd minute.

Bola pulled a goal back from the edge of the box to set up a tense finish and Tilt then scored one of the goals of the season to keep Blackpool's promotion hopes alive.
