Blackpool have held West Ham United to a 0-0 draw at Upton Park.

Ian Holloway made a complete overhaul to his Blackpool side that lost to Aston Villa during the week and they managed to frustrate the Hammers who remained rooted to the bottom of the table.

Referee Kevin Friend denied Avram Grant’s men two first-half penalties but that did not stop the Hammers faithful from baying for the manager’s blood at the final whistle.

The Seasiders remained 14th after the draw whilst West Ham went equal with Wolves on points but stayed bottom due to goal difference.
