Blackpool lost out to Manchester United last night in what was a roller coaster 90 minutes at Bloomfield Road. Ian Holloway’s men surged into a 2-0 lead, which they held going into the half time break, with Craig Cathcart and DJ Campbell providing the goals.

Sir Alex Ferguson however, ensured it was a spirited United which took to the pitch for the second period and Dimitar Berbatov started the fightback in the 72nd minute. Mexican Javier Hernandez rocked Blackpool by quickly squaring the match up just two minutes later, before Berbatov netted his second two minutes from time to give United the win.

And Ferguson hailed Man Utd’s comeback as something which is just part of the club’s DNA.

"I have to say, it’s down to the history of the club", said the Scot. "We just never give in. In the first half we were battered. We had a terrible first half, it must be said. We didn’t create anything like we should have been doing, but I know the game is never done.

"We made a change at half time and Ryan Giggs made a tremendous difference. We started to penetrate, we started to play our way and we’ve run out deserved winners in the end. You know fine well in situations like this we’re going to do something. And it needed something because the first half wasn’t very good at all. But we kept going, we kept playing our football and kept penetrating and got the rewards for that."
