The i newsletter cut through the noise

Fortunate to get away with a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes in the first half, but held on for 10th clean sheet of the season.

Michael Nottingham - 7

Had a quiet first half, but improved in the second period and looked to support down the flanks whenever possible.

Donervon Daniels - 7

Solid as ever in Blackpool’s new-look back three, but slightly fortunate not to concede a penalty in the second half.

Ben Heneghan - 8

Dominant in the air and produced some vital blocks and interceptions. Probably one of his best displays for the club.

Curtis Tilt - 7

Almost caught on the ball in the first half but other than that, produced another near-flawless display.

Marc Bola - 7

Attacked well and unfortunate not to claim another assist after whipping in a dangerous ball in the first half.

Ollie Turton - 7

Deployed in midfield and again didn’t let anyone down. Felt a bit tight so brought off on the hour mark.

Jay Spearing - 7

Brought off as a precaution ahead of Tuesday’s game, Pool will need to keep him fit over winter if they’re to stay in contention.

Jordan Thompson - 8

Set up Armand Gnanduillet’s opener before turning scorer for the second of the game, his third of the season.

Joe Dodoo - 8

Did superbly to set up Blackpool’s second before producing yet another acrobatic finish for his fourth in as many games.

Armand Gnanduillet - 8

Claimed his seventh goal of the season in clinical fashion and had further chances to add to his tally.

Subs usedHarry Pritchard - 6

For Turton, 61

Originally due to come at half time with Turton struggling with an injury, but helped Pool see out the win in the last 30 minutes.

Chris Taylor - 6

For Spearing, 75

Allowed Blackpool’s captain to have an early rest as a precaution ahead of Tuesday’s visit to Doncaster.

Liam Feeney - 6

For Dodoo, 79

Didn’t have much of a chance to make an impact on the game, coming on when Pool were seeing out the rest of the game.
