They were just six points above the bottom two when March began but five wins and two draws later, they are now in 13th place and seven points off the play-offs.

There was further disappointment for Blackpool as Brad Potts lost out on the Player of the Month award, with Accrington's Shay McCartan taking home the award.

Potts' two goals and two assists weren't enough to stop McCartan, who bagged six goals from his seven games.
