Brett Pitman scored twice to help Portsmouth to victory over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road in a game which produced four goals in the final 16 minutes.Pitman’s second goal was the winner, coming after Ben Close thought he had won it for Pompey, only for Oliver Hawkins to put through his own net.Viv Solomon-Otabor came close for Blackpool, who were put up for sale by owners the Oyston family this week, after 50 minutes cutting in from the left and firing a low shot inches wide.

Two minutes later, though, it was Portsmouth who took the lead. Lowe’s deflected shot was well saved by Ryan Allsop, but the ball dropped to Pitman who slotted into the empty net.Blackpool equalised in the 74th minute when substitute Dolly Menga, making his debut, picked out an inch-perfect cross for Solomon-Otabor to score from four yards.But their lead lasted just six minutes. Keeper Allsop was unlucky again, making a superb save to deny Pitman but the ball broke to Close who stroked in expertly from 12 yards.On 82 minutes the game turned again as the Seasiders equalised for a second time when Hawkins headed into his own net.Remarkably Portsmouth grabbed their winner just four minutes later when Pitman was left unmarked at the far post and nodded into the bottom corner from six yards.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsBlackpool26Allsop20Turton6Aimson16Tilt23Daniel17Solomon-Otabor14Ryan44Spearing24CookeSubstituted forGnanduilletat 87’minutes18PhilliskirkSubstituted forMengaat 71’minutes30DelfounesoSubstitutes1Williams2Mellor3Taylor8D’Almeida11Gnanduillet15Longstaff21MengaPortsmouth1McGee26Evans9Hawkins6Burgess5ClarkeBooked at 82mins4Rose33Close18Lowe23BennettSubstituted forDonohueat 87’minutes22Naismith8PitmanSubstitutes11Kennedy14Main17Donohue19Chaplin25Talbot30May35BassReferee:Jonathan MossAttendance:5,032Match StatsHome TeamBlackpoolAway TeamPortsmouthPossessionHome57%Away43%ShotsHome9Away13Shots on TargetHome1Away5CornersHome5Away6FoulsHome13Away8Live TextPosted at Match ends, Blackpool 2, Portsmouth 3.Full TimePosted at 90’+4′ Second Half ends, Blackpool 2, Portsmouth 3.Posted at 90’+3′ Attempt blocked.
