WATCH: Arsenal loanee Ballard powers home header in Blackpool victory

Daniel Ballard scored the second goal of his loan spell and helped Blackpool keep another clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Oxford United.

The Arsenal defender has won plenty of admirers for his performances with the League One side this season.

Making his eighth consecutive start against Oxford on Saturday, Ballard put in another fine display as he doubled Blackpool's advantage before the half-time break with a towering header.

Blackpool have conceded just three goals in those eight games with Ballard in the starting line-up.

The 21-year-old will miss Blackpool's next few games as he links up with the Northern Ireland national team.
