James Collins grabbed an 89th-minute winner to finally see off gutsy Blackpool 3-2 and end Aston Villa's five-match winless run in the Barclays Premier League.
Tangerines boss Ian Holloway made 10 changes from the side that drew 2-2 with Everton at the weekend but they were arguably the better team before Stewart Downing put the hosts ahead with a deflected shot in the 28th minute.
Villa old boy Marlon Harewood levelled just before half-time and, after Nathan Delfouneso had netted his first of the season on the hour mark, DJ Campbell stunned Villa Park with Blackpool's second three minutes from time. But Villa went straight down the other end and secured the three points through Collins' header.
