Blackpool rise to see off Watford by two goals to nil at Vicarage Road.

Stephen Dobbie bagged a brace for Blackpool to see off Watford at Vicarage Road this afternoon.

The striker opened the scoring after 25 minutes when his winding run into the box ended with a shot that found the bottom left corner.

Blackpool were awarded a penalty in the 70th minute when Tomasz Kuszczak brought down Thomas Ince inside the area.

The on-loan Manchester United keeper had initially saved the youngster's shot before upending him.

Dobbie stepped up to sweep the spot-kick home and take all three points back to the North West.

The win takes the Tangerines level on points with Birmingham City and further presses home their playoff aspirations.
