Blackpool 3-0 Burton Albion: Matt Scrafton's player ratings
Blackpool earned their fifth straight win in clinical fashion as they saw off Burton Albion 3-0 at Bloomfield Road on Saturday.
Here's how Pool's players rated:
Mark Howard - 6
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.
