A great win!
A superb start going 1-0 up in the third minute with a good finish from Jephcott.
We had chances soon after - a Grant goal was disallowed and Jephcott didn't have the pace to get a shot away.
After that Blackpool were the better team, winning a lot of possession and pressing our defence.
Michael Cooper made three good saves and our defending was last ditch rather than measured.
Grant picked up an injury and Camara replaced him.
The second half was more even, Mayor was our main threat, often dribbling into the box and either looking to cross or shoot.
Jephcott was replaced by Telford early in the second half.
Cooper made a flying save as again we were hanging on.
Moore came on at right wing-back with Cooper going off and Edwards switching to the left.
Clear chances were at a premium for both sides.
A win built on a strong defence, it wasn't convincing but you can't argue with starting the season with 3 points against a well fancied Blackpool team.
Mayor, Aimson, Wootton and Camera all had good games but Michael Cooper was easily man of the match.
Good to see two of our own scoring and making the saves to win the game.
Camera made a difference with his surging runs, Mayor was unplayable at times, Macleod was busy and Wootton and Aimson made several clearances and last ditch tackles.
On the downside Nouble was disappointing especially in the first half, he must have received 'some instructions' at half time because he improved for the second half.
George Cooper had a quiet game and with three injuries to players plus Wootton also going down it's clear the players, including Cooper, are not match fit.
Blackpool, like a lot of teams might do this season, pressed our back three and meant we couldn't play our usual passing along the back - moving the play side to side, we had to play long and didn't have the pace or Hardie upfront to make this a success.
Not the usual Ryan Lowe style of attacking football but a win built on a great defensive display and don't forget we had the most clean sheets in League Two last season.
We know how to win games.
Also good to see Bobby's garden covered over.
It's horrible not being there, while it's good to watch the game iFollow with its problems is a poor substitute.
It must be so difficult for the players to play in an empty stadium but the intensity and commitment was plain to see.
Man of the match - Michael Cooper.
