Blackpool 2-0 Chesterfield

Brad Potts
Brad Potts's strike was his second goal of the season

Blackpool climbed off the bottom of the League One table as they beat Chesterfield to register their first home victory since January.

Mark Cullen gave the Seasiders an early lead when he slotted Jack Redshaw's miscued shot in to the top corner.

Chesterfield responded, with top scorer Sam Morsy shooting wide from long range and Ollie Banks twice going close.

But Blackpool made sure of a first win since beating Brighton on 31 January when Brad Potts netted from 12 yards.
