A first half penalty from Chris Maguire saw Blackpool tumble to yet another defeat at the bottom of the Championship.

The striker made no mistake after Peter Clarke hacked down Stevie May on 39 minutes.

Pool had some decent chances of their own, particularly when Keiren Westwood somehow beat away a point blank header from Ishmael Miller 17 minutes from time.

But it wasn’t to be for Lee Clark’s men, who saw Miller sent off for his second yellow card in injury time, and whose Championship status is hanging by a thread.
