Tony Parkes’ Blackpool side are holding their own at Ashton Gate this afternoon, as at half time the game is finely balanced at 0-0.

DJ Campbell came the closest for The Seasiders to breaking the deadlock as he struck a shot over the angle of post and bar on the run, but in truth Adriano Basso has had very little to do in the Robins’ goal.

The same goes for Paul Rachubka though; the US stopper – back in the side for Matt Gilks – has had a couple of shots straight at him, but nothing of any major note.

Bad news for Blackpool half way through the first period when Ian Evatt hobbled off after a heavy challenge. He was replaced by Danny Coid, which saw Alex John-Baptiste move to the middle of defence alongside skipper Shaun Barker.

Nicky Maynard might’ve done better with a chance created by the lively Michael McIndoe but he fired over ‘Pool’s bar.

Half time: Bristol City 0 – 0 Blackpool
