Ricardo Fuller's sixth-minute strike proves enough to earn Blackpool a 1-0 half-time lead over Sheffield Wednesday at Bloomfield Road.

Ricardo Fuller has fired Blackpool into a 1-0 half-time lead over Sheffield Wednesday at Bloomfield Road this afternoon.

The Tangerines found the opening goal as early as the sixth minute, when the former Stoke City striker reacted quickest from a corner to smash into the roof of the net from close range.

The visitors would have been level shortly after if not for the intervention of goalkeeper Matt Gilks, who produced a smart save to deny Connor Wickham's close-range effort.

Dave Jones's men spurned the opportunity to level matters on the stroke of half time, with Jose Semedo culpable for the miss by heading narrowly wide from a set piece.
