Nothing he could have done with Accrington’s goal having been floored by the initial shot off the post.

Ryan McLaughlin - 6

Showed plenty of attacking adventure down the right-hand flank and played a role in Blackpool’s third goal.

Donervon Daniels - 7

Commanding display at the back on his return to the side from injury. Took control and barked out orders as captain.

Paudie O’Connor - 7

Will be glad to get back on the pitch after serving his three-match suspension. Calm on the ball and looked to bring the ball out from the back.

Joe Bunney - 6

Gained some invaluable minutes on what was his first appearance for Pool since suffering an injury in August.

Callum Guy - 6

Bagged an assist with a through ball for Joe Dodoo’s second goal. Brought off on the hour mark to save him for Saturday.

Chris Taylor - 6

Constantly showed himself for the ball and looked to switch play as often as possible in a deeper role than usual.

John O’Sullivan - 6

Bagged an assist after playing the ball to Joe Dodoo for his first of the night. On the fringes a little bit over on the wing.

Liam Feeney - 5

Wasteful in possession and lost the ball too often. Needs to get himself more involved in games.

Joe Dodoo - 8

Bagged a brace with two clinical finishes, the first a spectacular overhead kick. Now has three goals in two games.

Armand Gnanduillet - 7

Marked his return from a four-match suspension with a well-taken goal, shooting low into the bottom corner.

Subs used

Harry Pritchard - 6

For Guy, 61

Went close to a second goal in as many games but was denied by a smart save. Also picked up a late booking.

Steve Davies - 6

For Dodoo, 61

Had a hand in Blackpool’s third goal of the night, flicking the ball on before going close himself with a header.

Michael Nottingham - 6

For Gnanduillet, 87

Added height to Blackpool’s backline as the Seasiders held on for the win in stoppage time.
