Comments:

Blackpool's second goal was credited to Brian Reid. TV pictures however showed that Leyton Orient's David McGhee diverted the cross into his own goal, without Reid touching the ball at any point.

Comments:

Chris Tate's goal after 27 seconds became the quickest-ever in a Play-Off Final.
