Seasiders Progress In Lancashire Senior Cup

Mafoumbi and Dodoo On Target Against Wigan

2 October 2018

Goals from Christoffer Mafoumbi and Joe Dodoo helped Blackpool beat Wigan Athletic 2-1 in the Lancashire Senior Cup this afternoon.

The pair both found the net in the first-half, with Mafoumbi being an unlikely source for the opener. A long punt down field from the goalkeeper ending up deceiving his opposite number in the 21st minute.

Joe Dodoo then doubled Blackpool's advantage in the 36th minute, heading in from eight-yards out. 

Wigan had their fair share of opportunities in the game though, and pulled a goal back through Kyle Joseph. 

The Latics continued to push forward in search of an equaliser, however The Seasiders held on to progress to the next round. 

Blackpool team: Mafoumbi, Nottingham, O'Connor, Avon, Graham (Williams), McLaughlin, Shaw, O'Sullivan, Ceesay, Dodoo, Davies
