Keshi Anderson Leads Blackpool’s Revival Against Peterborough United

Blackpool of England youngster, Keshi Anderson led his side’s revival in their home game Peterborough United and they eventually won the English Championship fixture by a wide margin, reports.

In spite of going down after just 11 minutes, Anderson’s effort midway through the first half helped Blackpool complete a courageous comeback to beat Peterborough 3-1 at Bloomfield Road.

Siriki Dembele rifled the visitors into the lead with a sweet left-foot finish from a tight angle, but Anderson leveled for the hosts just before the half-hour mark, as he lashed into the roof of the net from close range.

Second-half substitute Sonny Carey scored his first league goal to put The Seasiders ahead with just three minutes remaining.

There was even time for fellow sub Jerry Yates to score as well, tapping in at the second attempt in the last minute to end a seven-game winless run.

Blackpool boss Neil Critchley made five changes to his struggling side, with Dan Grimshaw replacing injured skipper Chris Maxwell in goal.

Joel Tomlinson and Jonson Clarke-Harris came into a Posh team looking to clinch only their second away win of the season and it was the visitors who started the brightest in one of just a handful of matches played in the Championship among a raft of Covid-19 enforced postponements.

Gary Madine powered a header wide two minutes later from Ryan Wintle’s inswinging cross as the home side came within a whisker of equalising.

Clarke-Harris smashed a left-foot shot high and wide as Darren Ferguson’s side looked to double their lead but it was Anderson who restored parity having moments earlier been thwarted by a smart save from ‘keeper David Cornell.

The Welsh shot-stopper produced an excellent save to deny Anderson but the winger made no mistake at the second time of asking as he fired home from Josh Bowler’s pinpoint pass into the box.
