Blackpool draws 1-1 with Newcastle
Relegation-threatened Blackpool ended a three-match losing run
by coming from behind to draw 1-1 against Newcastle thanks to an
equalizer by top scorer DJ Campbell.
The striker flicked home a corner by Charlie Adam in the 32nd
minute for his 10th goal of the season, with the ball just crossing
the line before Newcastle defender Jose Enrique cleared.
The visitors took the lead in the 17th when Joey Barton
dispossessed Adam and fed Peter Lovenkrands, whose shot found the
corner from 20 yards (meters).
Blackpool, which deserved all three points from a dominant
display at Bloomfield Road, climbed provisionally out of the
relegation zone and into 17th place, above Wigan. Newcastle is in
midtable and safe from the drop.
