Blackpool continue winning run by thrashing Gillingham

Kyle Vassell set Blackpool on their way to a fourth League One victory in as many games with a dominant 3-0 win over struggling Gillingham.
Having earlier hit the bar with a powerful header, Vassell fired home the opener after debutant goalkeeper Tom Hadler spilled Jimmy Ryan's 25-yard shot.
Scorer turned provider for the visitors after 33 minutes, as Vassell's drilled cross was met by the onrushing Nathan Delfouneso, who guided the ball past the luckless Hadler.
Midfielder Jay Spearing missed the chance to add to the Seasiders' lead three minutes after the break, as he hit the post from the penalty spot after Tom Eaves had needlessly fouled Curtis Tilt.
But substitute Kelvin Mellor tapped in Armand Gnanduillet's cross to seal the win for Gary Bowyer's side seven minutes from time.
Gills striker Eaves had the out-of-form hosts' best chance of the opening half with a header from 12 yards in stoppage time.
Josh Parker fired over the bar from 25 yards shortly after the break for Gillingham, who have now gone over six-and-a-half hours without scoring at home.
