Jamal Blackman was the hero for Wycombe as the Chairboys and Blackpool shared the spoils after fighting out a lively goalless draw at Adams Park.

The best chance of the match fell to Brad Potts from the penalty spot on 87 minutes after Max Muller was adjudged to have fouled Nathan Delfouneso.

However, Blackman guessed right and parried away Potts’ effort much to the relief of the Wycombe faithful.

The on-loan Chelsea stopper had earlier denied Potts just seconds into the second half but his effort from just four yards was somehow clawed away by the goalkeeper after great work by Nathan Delfouneso.

The Chairboys were not without their opportunities, however, and their best fell to Paris Cowan-Hall who saw his 25-yard thunderbolt superbly tipped wide by Dean Lyness on 41 minutes.

Blackpool started positively and Jordan Flores and Jack Payne saw two shots desperately blocked by the Wycombe defence before Joe Jacobson scrambled it clear.

The home side came back strongly a minute later when Sam Wood’s cross was tipped away by goalkeeper Lyness before Marcus Bean’s fierce drive was blocked.

On 10 minutes, Adebayo Akinfenwa had a good opportunity to keep his excellent form going but slashed his shot wide of Lyness’ goal.

Three minutes later, a Jacobson corner caused mayhem and Blackpool cleared just before Akinfenwa could pull the trigger.

The Tangerines came the closest to breaking the deadlock on 23 minutes when Potts’ cross beat Blackman but it hit the woodwork.

The match was simmering on the surface, with neither side able to fully assert their authority on the game.

Aaron Pierre then almost gave Wanderers the lead seconds later but his effort went just over as the second period started at lightning pace.

Akinfenwa almost grabbed the lead for the Chairboys on 54 minutes but he headed just over from Jacobson’s pinpoint delivery.

Five minutes later, Akinfenwa headed over again from Michael Harriman’s cross, albeit with a much more difficult chance.

“The Beast” was beginning to cause some real problems with his aerial prowess and he had another chance on 64 minutes but Lyness gathered the ball easily.

Both teams were frantically searching for that all-important winner that would put them right in the playoff picture.

However, thanks to Blackman’s heroics, it turned out to be a well-earned point for Gareth Ainsworth’s men who remain in the promotion hunt.
