Blackpool 0 Barnsley 0
Blackpool, 49 places below the Championship side, almost shocked the visitors within two minutes, when Jim McAlister, unmarked eight yards out, fired wide of the near post. The Tangerines continued to create the best opportunities, and Barnsley goalkeeper Adam Davies had to be at his best to deny Kyle Vassell. Both sides had a chance to win it in added time. “I thought it was a proper cup tie and we did ourselves justice against a very good Championship side,” said Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer.
