Blackpool beat Peterborough to move into the play-off places with one game of the Championship season remaining.
DJ Campbell claimed the only goal after 11 minutes, forcing a save from James McKeown with an overhead kick before finishing the rebound.
Blackpool missed several chances to extend their lead with Campbell and Brett Ormerod both wasteful.
The hosts had a late shout for a penalty when Liam Dickinson was brought down but the referee waved play on.
Peterborough manager Gary Johnson: "The players needed to provide a response after the debacle of last weekend at Reading - and they did. We had a couple of chances and James came up trumps at the other end with a host of really good saves.
"It is important we remain competitive both for ourselves and the other teams in the league.
"The job now is to add some quality to the energy and commitment to make sure we are ready for next season in League One."
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway: "DJ's strike is the goal of the season in terms of what it means.
"It was fantastic for the boy to respond in that way after what he had to go through this week with the police taking him off the training ground and down to London.
"It is all about character and DJ showed he has that. He is a hero for me. We are in a better position than we have been all season and we know it is now in our hands."
