Leeds went down to their first defeat of the season after losing to two late goals at Blackpool.

Tom Lees had given Leeds a 16th minute lead with a downward header from a Ross McCormack corner.

Paddy Kenny was also in great form in the first half with the Leeds goalkeeper making great saves to deny Tiago Gomes, Kevin Phillips and Alex Baptiste.

In the opening seconds of the second half, Tom Ince saw his shot hit the inside of the post and go across the goal as Blackpool got closer.

Leeds started to come into the game and McCormack and Becchio both had chances to double the lead.

Blackpool equalised with fifteen minutes remaining when substitute Nouah Dicko tapped in from close range.

The home side scored the winner with just ten minutes remaining when another substitute Matt Phillips scored.
