Blackpool crashed to their fifth defeat defeat on the bounce on a comfortable afternoon for Doncaster.

Both of the vistors’ goals came in the opening half as Pool’s questionable defending made it all too easy for Darren Ferguson’s men.

Blackpool’s resolve lasted just five minutes when terrible defending led to Doncaster’s opening goal.

After Tom Aldred was outpaced down the wing, Nathan Tyson’s cross was half cleared by Charles Dunne right into the path of Andy Williams who curled brilliantly into the top corner.

Tyson was a real thorn in the side of Blackpool in the early stages and he almost made it two moments later when he fired over inside the box.

Pool’s best chance of the opening half came on 17 minutes, when Mark Cullen headed a brilliant Jarrett Rivers cross wide from six yards.

Debutant keeper Dean Lyness denied Doncaster on a number of occasions, but his perfect afternoon was soon spoiled.

Just four minutes before the break he misjudged a corner and allowed defender Aaron Taylor-Sinclair to bundle the ball over the line.

You had to say it had been coming.

After the break it was a similar story, with Lyness quickly having to come to Pool’s rescue again when Conor Grant burst from midfield before shooting goal wards.

Apart from that there was very little to talk about in the second half, with Blackpool struggling to build any sort of momentum.
