Blackpool 3-0 Burton Albion

Three goals inside 12 second-half minutes helped Blackpool keep up their play-off push with a 3-0 win at home to Burton.

Armand Gnanduillet hit his seventh goal of the campaign 25 seconds after the restart and it got even better for the home side when Jordan Thompson slotted home three minutes later.

Joe Dodoo wrapped it up after 57 minutes with a spectacular scissor-kick finish, moving the Tangerines to seventh in the table.

The home side started strongest with Bradley Collins tipping over Gnanduillet's 12th-minute header, although home goalkeeper Mark Howard scrambled the ball off his line after he made a mess of Jay Spearing's back pass with 19 minutes gone.

Gnanduillet fired over after 36 minutes as both teams struggled to create chances, but after the break he gave Blackpool the lead with a cool low finish.

Thomas doubled that lead four minutes later after great work from Dodoo carved Albion open and the rampant home side wrapped it up eight minutes later thanks to Dodoo's acrobatic finish after Burton failed to clear a long throw.
