The away side were under pressure in the early stages of the first half after Matt Gilks was forced to make a save in the second minute courtesy of an in-swinging corner taken by Jay Bothroyd.
Blackpool began to find their stride through Stephen Crainey, who had two shots saved in the first 15 minutes until Thomas Ince found the breakthrough.
Ince collected the ball from Elliot Grandin, who provided a smooth pass into the six-yard box, which Ince managed to fire into the middle of the goal.
The home side tried to force through an equaliser before the break but Chris O'Grady and Bothroyd failed to make an impact for the home side.
