Dream start for Tangerines

Published Add your comment

Blackpool's first top-flight appearance since 1971 turned into one of the most memorable in their entire history as they demolished Wigan 4-0 to go top of the Premier League at the DW Stadium.

The Tangerines never looked back once Gary Taylor-Fletcher had put them ahead early in the first-half.

Marlon Harewood's double ensured the points were secure by half-time and Alex Baptiste added a fourth from the touchline with a shot that caught Chris Kirkland completely off guard.
