Bristol City 1-3 Blackpool

Late goals from Thomas Ince and Kevin Phillips earned Blackpool a third straight away win and lifted them into the play-off places.

Jon Stead gave Bristol City a first-half lead with his first goal of the season but Ince equalised thanks to a deflected free-kick.

Ince claimed his second of the game with six minutes left before Kevin Phillips netted a third.

City, without a win in six matches, are just three points above the drop zone.

McInnes rues loss of discipline

Stead opened the scoring when he turned his man inside the area and placed a left-footed shot into the bottom corner.

Blackpool were level when Phillips won a free-kick in a dangerous position and Ince beat David James.

The former England goalkeeper was beaten again when Ince tapped in at the far post from Brett Ormerod's left-wing cross.

Ormerod was also involved in the third goal three minutes later, playing the ball out to Stephen Crainey before Phillips knocked home from six yards.
