Blackpool earned a priceless victory in their fight against the drop as they shocked play-off chasing Wigan 2-0 in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Latics could have booked their place in the top six with a victory, but Uwe Rosler's men were below-par across the board and squandered an excellent opportunity to take the lead when Martyn Waghorn saw his penalty saved midway through the first half.

Goals after half-time from Andy Keogh and Stephen Dobbie sealed victory for the visitors, who completed a double over their Lancashire rivals.
