Rotherham United D came from behind as they shared the spoils with Blackpool E in a thrilling 4-4 draw.
This was a classic end-to-end game of futsal, but Blackpool threatened to draw away from their opponents early on as they stormed into a 2-0 lead. Kirk’s strike and an own goal had put them in a promising position but they were soon pegged back as Rotherham netted twice before the break.
Into the second half, and both teams continued to show excellent attacking work rate as chances fell either way. It was the Millers who would take the lead for the first time though as they earned a 3-2 advantage. As full time approached a flurry of goals were scored, with both sides desperate to claim some points. While Rotherham notched once more, Jackson and Fleetwood both scored for Blackpool to leave the final score at 4-4.
Blackpool E: Huddart, Paltree, Fleetwood, Kirk, Redman, Jackson, Worall, Bayliss, Crossfield.
Rotherham United D: Hartle, Tideswell, Kilner, Tingle, Daly, Beresford, Stringer.
