Blackpool beat Peterborough United 3-1 at home on Saturday to end their run of eight games without a win.
It was a big game for Neil Critchley’s players after they were coming into this game on the back of three straight defeats.
It didn’t start well either as Siriki Dembele put the visitors ahead after 11 minutes after he rounded ‘keeper Daniel Grimshaw.
Quiz: Have Blackpool FC signed a player from each of these 20 clubs in the last five years?
The Seasiders equalised 15 minutes later though after good work from Josh Bowler set up Keshi Anderson – but Blackpool had to wait until the 86th minute of the match to find their winner.
Critchley sent on youngster Sonny Carey along with Jerry Yates and both had a huge impact on the game.
Carey scored what looked to be the winner after being picked out by Anderson by Yates made sure of the win four minutes later.
It was Carey though who drew the plaudits as the youngster scored his first goal since arriving from non-league outfit Kings Lynn Town in the summer.
Supporters were pleased for their young summer acquisition grabbing his first for the club – here’s what they said on Twitter.
Loving the huge smile on his face 🧡
