Blackpool boss Ian Holloway was delighted with Cardiff's effort to have their Championship clash played following his side`s 1-1 draw in the Welsh capital.
City captain Mark Hudson opened the scoring with a towering header from Peter Whittingham's free-kick and once the Bluebirds were ahead they played some bright football, but after the interval it was a totally different game. The Seasiders were level when Ben Burgess and Charlie Adam combined straight from the restart, leaving the visitors' skipper clear to slot past David Marshall. Burgess then missed several chances to put Blackpool ahead.
"I am pleased Cardiff did so well to get the game on but it didn't look as though we had turned up in the first half," said Holloway.
"I had a go at my players during half-time and the second half was totally different as we forced their keeper to make a number of saves. The longer it went on the more we looked like going on to win."
