Holloway hopes narrow win is enough

Ian Holloway hopes Blackpool do not live to regret missed chances after claiming a slender 1-0 advantage in the first-leg of their npower Championship play-off semi-final against Birmingham.

The game's solitary strike was credited as an own goal to Blues captain Curtis Davies after a wicked deflection sent Tom Ince's speculative drive beyond wrong-footed goalkeeper Colin Doyle a minute before half-time.

"They nearly nicked an equaliser - I'd be fuming if that was the case because, generally, I thought we deserved to just edge it," said Holloway. "I'm delighted it (the goal) went in, I think we needed that, but a couple of those others - deary, deary me. I hope we don't rue the day that we missed them."
