This game might have been live on Ifollow and had over eleven hundred Coventry City supporters descend on the seaside town of Blackpool but a woefully inadequate performance saw the Sky Blues go down to a 2-0 defeat at Bloomfield Road.
The City support made up of many families and people out for an enjoyable day in the sunshine, not the mobs Blackpool Police were clearly expecting judging by their efforts to limit the numbers who had a good day out with friends and family before making their way up to a ground which saw the home areas sparcely populated. 
After the victory over Plymouth, Mark Robins made four changes and gave a debut to loanee Luke Thomas.
However, Robins  was soon forced to make a change when Max Biamou was injured in the opening minute. A stretcher was brought on but thankfully., it was not needed and the striker limped off to be replaced by Amadou Bakayoko, who again struggled with the offside tactics, employed by a team which had Spearing send a free kick wide and Ollie Turton volley over.
Liam O'Brien made one good save pushing away a 25 yarder from Shearing before City won their first corner of the game in the 37th minute when a Jordan Shipley cross was put behind.
Luke Thomas who looked reasonably lively, sent a free kick over the wall and out for a goal kick just before a poor half of football ended.
Three minutes into the second half and City fell behind and Liam O'Brien fall to get the ball and Mark Cullen headed into the net.
The Blackpool fans, many of who had joined in the City supporters "Oyston Out" chants made a bit of noise before being mocked by the City following which was clearly annoyed at the conceding of a soft goal.
Up front, City were clueless and in other areas, they were allowing the home side to dictate the game.

There was no fight from City.  In fact, there was more fight shown when two seagulls had a bit of a coming together than what some City players had displayed.
That included substitute Bakayoko who was replaced by Hiwula before Jordan Shipley limped off.
With eleven minutes left, Blackpool, who had brought on former City loanee Nathan Delfounseo, pushed forward. Liam O'Brien was beaten to the ball and Joe Dodoo was able to stroke the ball into the empty net.
That was it for many of the support who promptly upped and left, fed up of wasting a couple of hours paying to watch this fare.
