Blackpool 0-3 Milton Keynes Dons

MK Dons secured their first away win of the season with a classy 3-0 victory at Blackpool.

Russell Martin scored in the opening exchanges, Jordan Houghton notched a second before the hour and David Kasumu added a late third.

Blackpool struggled throughout and were behind after five minutes when Martin put the Dons ahead from close range.

Armand Gnanduillet glanced a header wide as the hosts looked to get back into the contest.

Midfielder Jordan Thompson then tried his luck from distance but his strike was comfortably dealt with by Dons goalkeeper Lee Nicholls.

Blackpool started brightly after the restart and just when it looked as though they may get back into the game, they shot themselves in the foot.

Curtis Tilt's loose pass was picked off by Houghton who raced through and doubled the Dons' lead.

Paul Tisdale's side added gloss when Kasumu capped a fine team move with a first-time finish to secure the win, which moves them into the top half.
