Blackpool beat Norwich 2-0 at Bloomfield Road. Second half goals from Brett Ormerod and Charlie Adam decided the game in Blackpools favour.
Blackpool Caretaker Manager Tony Parks added 'We needed that win and it's the first time for a long time that we have played such good football.
'With them being just below us it was always going to be a difficult game but we went out with a positive attitude.
'Once we had scored the first goal we were well on top and they really didn't create very much at all.'.
