Angel strikes to down Leeds United
10:53am Wednesday 18th April 2012 in Leeds United
Angel Martinez’s first goal for Blackpool proved enough to beat ten-man Leeds United in the npower Championship last night.
While the Whites’ play-off hopes are now mathematically over, Martinez handed Ian Holloway’s side a significant victory in their pursuit of a top-six finish.
The former Espanyol midfielder pounced on a loose ball ten minutes from time to sink a spirited Leeds side that finished a man down after Darren O’Dea earned a second yellow card.
Wing duo Matt Phillips and Tom Ince had Blackpool on the front foot during the first-half, but Leeds were a threat from set plays and on the counter attack.
