Oriol Riera's first goal in English football gave Wigan Athletic their first Sky Bet Championship victory of the season, beating Blackpool 1-0.
The scoreline was hugely flattering to the Seasiders, who were on the back foot for virtually the whole game and offered very little going forward.
Brentford secured their first Sky Bet Championship victory of the season as Stuart Dallas grabbed the winner early in the second half to beat struggling Blackpool 2-1 at Bloomfield Road.
Nathan Delfouneso had put the Tangerines ahead with just their second goal of the campaign, but Alex Pritchard levelled things up after 37 minutes and Dallas' goal though seven minutes into the second half handed the Bees their opening win on their return to the second tier after 21 years.
Blackpool are set to complete deals for two more players to give them a squad of 16, according to the Blackpool Gazette.
Everton midfielder John Lundstram and former Manchester City striker Ishmael Miller are both expected to sign on in the very near future.
Lundstram will join the club on a six-month loan deal, whereas Miller will become the club's highest paid player when he puts pen-to-paper.
