Manchester United defender Tyler Blackett rescued a point for Blackpool in their draw with Birmingham City.

Blackett cleared a late effort from Lee Novak off the line to keep the scores at 1-1.

"It is my preferred position," he explained to the club's official website. "That is where I enjoy as I can get forwards and back.

"I'd only played Under-21 football and that is totally different to playing in the Championship, which is a great experience. It's tough but I'm getting used to it."
