Armand Gnanduillet scored twice as Blackpool crept back into the League One play-off places with a home win over AFC Wimbledon.

Top-scorer Gnanduillet’s second-half brace secured back-to-back league wins that moved the Seasiders up to fifth.

Sullay Kaikai fired against the crossbar from outside the area early on and Nathan Delfouneso hooked the rebound over as the hosts dominated.

Kaikai’s free-kick curled off target, while Matty Virtue chested down Jay Spearing’s pass but fired straight at visiting goalkeeper Nathan Trott.

At the other end Jak Alnwick punched Max Sanders’ curling free-kick to safety and the Blackpool goalkeeper collected Terell Thomas’ drive at the second time of asking ahead of Marcus Forss.

After a goalless first half, the hosts took the lead six minutes after the restart when Gnanduillet’s effort flew in following Delfouneso’s good work.

Gnanduillet secured the points with nine minutes remaining after slotting home Liam Feeney’s cross from close range.

Trott parried substitute Joe Nuttall’s effort to an onrushing Kaikai who could not apply the finishing touch, while Alnwick kept Forss’ shot out as the Dons failed to find a consolation.
