Background: Arsenal defeated Blackpool one-nil at home in Highbury on Saturday -- and gained another two points with which to challenge Leeds for the top of League Division One. And although Arsenal are six points behind Leeds' 54, they still have two games in hand.
For Blackpool, however, the defeat meant they were placed even more firmly at the bottom of Division One -- and in dire danger of relegation to Division Two at end of the season.
