FT: Cardiff 3-2 Blackpool

Two penalties from Eoin Doyle helped Cardiff condemn relegated Blackpool to a full Sky Bet Championship season without an away victory thanks to a 3-2 victory at the City Stadium.

Joe Mason's early strike fired the hosts into the lead, with Doyle doubling their advantage after Henry Cameron had fouled Aron Gunnarsson.

Andrea Orlandi's goal gave the visitors hope of mounting a comeback, but Doyle killed off their chances following Miles Addison's foul on Mason before Peter Clarke's late consolation.

It was just Cardiff's second home win in 11 games, while for Lee Clark's men this was a 17th game without a victory as they prepare for the drop down into the third tier.

Another penalty from Dan Evans and a try by Ben John saw the Ospreys pulling away.

Although the Blues had the last word with a break away try from Dan Fish, they were unable to close the gap.
