Manchester United loanee Jesse Lingard made it six goals in seven games when he found the back of the net in Birmingham City’s 1-1 draw with Blackpool at St Andrew’s Stadium on Saturday.

After coming close to breaking the deadlock when his shot was deflected just wide of the post, Lingard finally got his goal on the 27th minute mark. Pouncing on Kirk Broadfoot’s mistake, 20-year old Lingard finished neatly from six yards past Matt Gilks to give Birmingham the lead.

Blackpool, who are currently challenging for promotion, found their equalizer shortly after with Ricardo Fuller firing past City’s Darren Randolph.

For Birmingham, it was an important point for a side that is currently hovering above the relegation zone with 15 points gathered this season.
