Blackpool Vs. Birmingham City: Chalkboard Crafted Goal Allows DJ Campbell To Claim Equalizer

The headline calls it a chalkboard goal, implying that it was something a manager would draw-up. The further implication is that those types of goals are both beautiful and surprising, but with Blackpool's ability to spray the ball around, DJ Campbell's 68th minute equalizer fits well within what we've come to expect from the Seasiders. Putting home a headed ball from Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Campbell has equalized for Blackburn, leaving the match drawn 1-1.

The play's main build-up started with Charlie Adams on the ball 32 yards from goal. The captain swung a ball wide right for Neal Eardley, who got to the line before putting a far post ball to the edge of the six for Taylor-Fletcher. The attacker fell back from the defense to win the ball, heading it down for Campbell near the spot. The right footed finish by one of the club's promotion heroes brought Blackpool even with visiting Brum.

Now in the 75th minute, Blackpool continues to look their progressive selves. Moves in the ball from flank-to-flank against a Birmingham City team defending as if leading, Blackpool is pressing to break the 1-1 deadlock.
