Five star Blackpool ran riot as Brad Potts inspired them to a 5-0 win against Scunthorpe.

The Seasiders were outstanding from start to finish to climb three places in the League One table and out of the relegation zone.

It took just two minutes for Tom Aldred to head Pool home from a Jim McAlister corner and from there onwards they never looked back.

Behind most of their positive play was midfielder Potts, who produced two superb finishes to hand the Seasiders a 3-0 half-time lead.

First he sealed a lovely team move involving David Norris and Jack Redshaw, before Norris again played Potts through for his second.

After the break it was a similar story, with Norris again involved, hammering home Pool’s fourth after McAlister and Redshaw both had efforts blocked.

And as full-time approached Potts turned provider, playing in Danny Philliskirk who finished well for his first goal for the club.

Blackpool were superb, Scunthorpe were terrible.
