Blackpool   3 - 0   Coventry

Blackpool brushed Coventry aside to record their first Championship victory of the season.

Gary Taylor-Fletcher hit the bar with a header early on before Charlie Adam put Blackpool ahead from the penalty spot after Ben Burgess had been fouled.

Blackpool grabbed their second when Brett Ormerod crossed perfectly for Burgess to head home at the far post.

Ormerod was the provider again when he crossed for Taylor-Fletcher to strike from six yards to complete the win

The victory ends a run of four successive league draws for Blackpool and follows their success against Wigan in the Carling Cup on Wednesday.

Chris Coleman's men were not without their chances - notably a Jack Cork shot from 12 yards when Freddy Eastwood drew a brilliant save from Paul Rachubka in the second half.

But the hosts' superior finishing proved the difference between the sides.


Blackpool boss Ian Holloway said:
"I believe this is a special group of players and it's very nice to follow up the win over Wigan midweek.

"Brett Ormerod was terrific for us and he truly deserved a goal. He is playing all over the pitch because that's what I want my players to do.

"I want my players to never stop attacking and this new system I've brought in is wonderful to watch."

Coventry boss Chris Coleman said:
"Our second 45 minutes were abysmal. I have a dressing room full of players who are unhappy, disappointed and disgruntled and rightly so.

"Their keeper could have come off the pitch and we just have not turned up to the match for the past few games."

"I have to take the blame as I have asked the players to play in formation and something is not working."
