Palace return from seaside with a point

The conditions made it difficult for the players as well and the game ended all sqaure.

Paul Ifill gave the visitors a 28th minute lead which they held until half time. Within 5 mins of the restart Palce were 2 - 1 up. Burgess for Blackpool levelled with on loan Craig Beattie restoring the lead a minute later.

As the rain lashed down Blckpool went in search of a leveller and they got it through Ian Evatt who headed home from a long free kick.

That was it for the scoring but it will take weeks for the visiting supporters to fully dry out.
