Blackpool   2 - 0   Doncaster

Blackpool 2-0 Doncaster

Blackpool 2-0 Doncaster

Blackpool beat Doncaster to make it four wins in a row and keep the heat on Championship play-off rivals Leicester.

Blackpool went in front on 27 minutes when the ball ran loose from Stephen Crainey's cross and DJ Campbell stabbed home left-footed from close range.

Doncaster were denied an equaliser when James Hayter headed Gareth Roberts's cross against the bar on 64 minutes.

Three minutes later Stephen Dobbie made it 2-0 when he curled a right-footed shot inside the far post from 12 yards.

Ian Holloway's in-form Blackpool team have now scored 13 goals in their last four league games.

But Doncaster, beaten 2-1 at home by lowly Plymouth on Saturday, have taken only four points from their last five matches and their play-off bid has stalled dramatically.


Blackpool manager Ian Holloway:
"I am bursting with pride for my lads. If we can extend the season, so be it, I will be a delighted man.

"I think today showed we have strength in depth and I can take players on and off without affecting our style.

"I was very pleased with the two goals. The first was a real goal-poacher's effort, and the second a great strike."

Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll:
"I never really thought we had a serious chance of the play-offs in the first place.

"We are in our second season in the Championship, and I will not be losing any sleep over this.

"The pitch made it very difficult for the two footballing sides, but I am delighted for Blackpool. If they make it to the play-offs, they will champion the cause of the little clubs like ourselves."
