An impressive defensive display from Charlton Athletic frustrates Blackpool in the first half at Bloomfield Road.

A quiet first half between Blackpool and Charlton Athletic in the Championship ends goalless at Bloomfield Road.

Chances were hard to come by for both side in the early stages and despite Blackpool dominating possession, a lack of creativity in the final third of the pitch prevented any clear-cut opportunities.

The first real chance fell to Ricardo Fuller but the Charlton striker sent his effort wide after capitalising on a loose ball from a corner.

Matt Phillips went close to breaking the deadlock in superb fashion by turning well before unleashing a powerful strike from 25 yards that Ben Hamer did well to push to safety.

Blackpool had Stephen Crainey to thank for keeping the scores level before the break after the defender reacted superbly to prevent Bradley Pritchard tapping the ball into an empty net.
