Bolton's Doug Holden leaves the pitch at the end

In what turned out to be a scintillating game of Premier League football - one of the finest ever to grace the top flight - Blackpool and Bolton Wanderers recreated their 1953 FA Cup Final match, with the Seasiders running out 4-3 winners.

Blackppol needed the win so that they could remain hopeful of staying in the Premier League for a second season.

Bolton had relatively little to play for, but decided to anyway, and what happened next proved a treat for fans of both clubs.

It was Wanderers' Nat Lofthouse, who died in January, who opened the scoring after 2 minutes, before cenre forward Stan Mortensen equalised in the 36th minute. Bobby Langton then restored Bolton's lead, with Eric Bell making it 3-1 after 55 minutes.

But then, back came the Seasiders.

First Mortenson scored after 68 minutes, and then completed his hatrick with less than two minutes remaining. To cap off a wonderful afternoon's football, Bill Perry lashed home a last minute shot to win the game for Ian Holloway's men.

It was no less than they deserved, and their task is now simple:

Go to Old Trafford next week to face newly-crowned champions Manchester United and beat them, and they'll probably stay up.
