Mark Cullen’s first half goal handed Blackpool their first back-to-back wins in more than two years.

Neil McDonald’s men held-on for a 1-0 victory against Swindon thanks to Cullen’s header from a Henry Cameron corner.

Not since August 2013 have Blackpool recorded two home wins on the bounce, and the sparse crowd inside Bloomfield Road were left delighted.

It could have been more for the Seasiders early in the second half only for some superb goalkeeping from Swindon’s Lawrence Vigouroux.

The Liverpool loan man denied Brad Potts a long-range wonder strike before saving well from substitute Bright Samuel in the space of two minutes.

There was a nervy moment 15 minutes from time when Swindon’s James Brophy went down under a challenge from Aldred in the area, referee Webb blew his whistle, but instead of pointing the to spot awarded a free-kick to Blackpool.

He booked the defender for diving, much to the fury of Aldred who gave Brophy a piece of his mind.

In the end it was another win for Blackpool and four losses in five for Swindon.
