FA Cup: Blackpool 4-1 Morecambe highlights

Armand Gnanduillet scored his 10th goal of the season as Blackpool beat Morecambe 4-1 to reach the FA Cup second round.

Nathan Delfouneso, Gnanduillet, Matty Virtue and Sullay Kaikai all scored, with Cole Stockton's reply a mere consolation for Morecambe, despite the Shrimps twice hitting the woodwork.

Mark Halstead had already saved from Delfouneso and Gnanduillet when the former was on hand to head Blackpool in front after nine minutes from Kaikai's badly sliced effort.

Mark Lavelle clattered the bar after 22 minutes, but Gnanduillet doubled Blackpool's lead in the 24th when he headed in from Kaikai's corner.

Stockton was next to hit the woodwork after his brilliant turn and volley hit the post with 43 minutes gone.

Blackpool once again took full advantage with Virtue tapping in from close range two minutes later after Halstead denied Gnanduillet.

Stockton did pull one back on the stroke of half-time, however, following in after Jak Alnwick spilt Tom Brewitt's shot.

But Kaikai sealed Blackpool's victory after 84 minutes with a delicate finish to book the Seasiders' second-round place.
