Half-Time Report: Peter Clarke gives Blackpool crucial advantage

Peter Clarke's header gives Blackpool the lead going into the break of their crucial Championship match with Millwall.

Peter Clarke's header has given Blackpool a 1-0 lead going into half time of their crucial Championship match with Millwall this afternoon.

There was an early scare for Millwall as Jimmy Abdou's pass was intercepted by David Perkins, but none of his teammates could get onto the end of his cross, which flashed across the face of goal.

Andrea Orlandi's low shot then forced a fine save from Millwall keeper David Forde at full stretch before Sid Nelson cleared the loose ball.

It was an encouraging start to the match but there were a number of stoppages due to injury as the half went on and the game suffered as a result.

Martyn Woolford, however, came close to an opening goal when his header was cleared off the line by Clarke.

Clarke's eventful half then saw him open the scoring for Blackpool when he rose highest to head home following a Jamie O'Hara set piece.
