Blackpool 2nds made hard work of their victory at Wigan as some sloppy passing moves nearly led to a Wigan opener. Blackpool soon woke up to the game and began to create some chances as the opener came deep into the first half with a one on one with the Wigan goalkeeper as Martin Hayes slotted home from six yards out. The second came from great link up play as Warren Edmondson converted an easy chance from a similar position.
Shortly after the break the Wigan defence still under great pressure kept out what could have been a third Blackpool goal as the visitors began to grow tired and the home side snatched a goal back deep into the second half. With fifteen minutes remaining it was up to Blackpool to hold the home side at bay through some excellent defensive work from Alex Diver, Nicky & captain Dave Rayner, the final whistle was blown as Blackpool 2nds emerged victors to a side positioned two leagues above themselves.
