Blackpool overcame a resolute Lytham side, after a sub-par performance from the Tangerines. With many of the squad struggling through illness, Pool were always going to struggle to live up to their last performance.
Blackpool opened the scoring in the first period with Martin Hayes deflecting home a Andy Mortimer Short Corner, before James Slater opened up the Lytham defence 5 minuites later to double their lead. Alex Diver made it Three just before half time, following impressive play from midfielder Steve Whitley.
Lytham got a goal back just after half time, however it was Steve Whitley who made the game safe with 15 minutes to go.
