Played slightly out of position on the right-hand side of Pool's back three but as usual that was no issue for Turton. Mr Dependable was solid throughout.

2. Ollie Turton - 8

As good a good debut as you're going to get. Slotted seamlessly into Blackpool's back three and rarely looked threatened by Bristol Rovers' attack.

3. Ryan Edwards - 8

His best display in a Blackpool shirt to date, which is saying something. Magnificent performance from start to finish and looked a man possessed.

4. MAN OF THE MATCH: Curtis Tilt - 9/10
