Blackpool 1-0 Swindon Town

Blackpool claimed a second successive win for the first time in two years as Mark Cullen's goal secured victory over Swindon.

Cullen scored just before half-time, meeting a Clark Robertson near-post flick from Henry Cameron's corner.

Fabien Robert and Colin Doyle had early chances for Swindon, who have now gone five games without a win.

But it was Blackpool who had the better of the game after their goal, as Brad Potts and Bright Samuel went close.
