comment on the article

Robbie Williams and Keigan Parker scored the goals which won promotion for Blackpool as they beat Yeovil in the League One play-off final.

Williams opened the scoring when he curled a free-kick round the wall and into the bottom corner on 43 minutes.

And seven minutes into the second half, Parker curled in superbly from outside the area to double Blackpool's lead.

Keeper Steve Mildenhall made good saves to prevent Parker and Andrew Morrell adding a third as Blackpool dominated.

Give your thoughts on the match. How will the two sides get on next season?

A great day at Wembley and what a great bunch of fans from Yeovil.Pool were fantastic and outplayed the Glovers from start to finish. Think the C C C ciders will have to spend some of Blel's money this summer......but even if we dont am looking forward to crushing some lilley white flowers under foot.

Well done to Blackpool. As a Yeovil fan it was great to see us 'play' at a fantastic stadium but as any real football fan will know, you have to admit when you were beaten by a better team. Yeovil didn't really show what they could do on a pitch but that was really down to the way Blackpool played. Let's hope we get a 20+ a season striker soon!

i went to the game yesterday

i was disapointed with Yeovils effort. Blackpool did deserve to win and scored two good goals. Both sets of fans were good

Was at the match yesterday... and Blackpool taught us a lesson in football, one which if our lads have any sense, will learn from and better themselves. You will be fine in the Championship, you have a financial backer, and an extremely astute tactician in Simon Grayson. All the best lads for next season

was at the match yesterday. Blackpool were by far the better team, we just didnt get started. Our support was huge, but not very vocal! i was singing my heart out but i was probably one of the 5,000 that was actualy singing from the 30,000 yeovil fans. Too many fans came who just came to watch a match at wembley and that dampened the atmosphere in the yeovil end.

I was at Wembley yesterday..what a day proud to be a glover..have to say i agree with dingle glover that our hardcore fans did sing but were not accompanied by enough people..never realised we had so many fans shame most were quiet.. Steve Mildenhall tried to liven us up behind the goal but not enough of the fans seemed to want to win in the same way the players didnt seem to want to...Point about Wembley not enough womens toilets one ladies to five mens toilets.. NO BOVRIL either..Well done Pool you deserved it and i showed my appreciation as i left by either applauding the great pool fans or shaking hands with pool fans after..As i type this i am watching WBA and their fans seem as quiet as ours were yesterday..If your goinf to a big important game at least get behind your team...Thanks YEOVIL FOR A GREAT DAY OUT

Great day out. Good game (especially after the boredom of the FA Cup Final); BFC absolute class - could easily have won it 4/5-0. Fantastic support in the tangerine end. Yeovil didn't really turn up, but their supporters that I met afterwards were all honest about that and wished BFC luck in the Championship. Just need to persuade Hoolahan to stay now...
Man of the match? Adrian Forbes.
