Gary Bull and Gareth Sheldon were on target in our only win On This Day, away at Blackpool in Divison Two in 2000.
Bull scored his only first team goal in United colours, 20 months after his debut, with a close range effort.
Meanwhile, Sheldon cut inside to curl home the second and secure a win that gave their side hope of surviving in the division. However, they were to suffer eventual relegation.
