Blackpool defeat Exeter City 2-1 to secure immediate return to League One

Brad Potts’s early goal gave the Seasiders the initiative in the League Two playoff final and although David Wheeler equalised for Exeter, Mark Cullen’s close-range effort midway through the second half ensured that Blackpool will only be spending a year at the fourth tier.

The triumph also caps a fine first 12 months in charge for Gary Bowyer, who can now look forward to fixtures against former side Blackburn Rovers when they start to look forward to next season.
