Not sure, but maybe the fact that Blackpool beat Bolton in the 1953 FA Cup (perhaps the most famous final in FA Cup history) in which Matthews and Mortenson combined so superbly to grab a 4-3 victory after being 3-1 down with something like 20 minutes to go, explains why Morty was the centre forward and not Nat 'Lion of Vienna' Lofthouse (who played for Bolton).
