Blackpool are hit by United charge; PREMIERLEAGUE.

Blackpool ..................... 2 Man Utd ....................... 3 Red Devils old boy Craig BLACKPOOL'S Tangerine dream was shattered by one of those famous Manchester United comebacks as Sir Alex Ferguson's men roared back from two goals down to surge five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

At half-time, on top and two goals up, it appeared Blackpool would end United's unbeaten record and achieve a result that would go down in the history books alongside the 'Matthews Final' in 1953.

But those goals from Cathcart and DJ Campbell were insufficient to resist United, who were galvanised by Ryan Giggs and Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican struck the all-important equaliser, but once again it was Dimitar Berbatov who did the damage for the rampant Red Devils, tapping home his side's first 19 minutes from time before driving home his 20th goal of the season.
