While Marco Silva’s side has now won all five of its games in all competitions, scoring 23 goals and conceding six.

Between those two triumphs, however, Neil Critchley’s side was knocked out of the FA Cup by a disappointing 2-1 loss to bottom-tier Hartlepool United.

Blackpool is 14th in the EFL Championship table with 36 points after 27 games, level on points with Sheffield United and Preston North End.
