Full-back Jack Robinson was sent off shortly before the hour mark for a second bookable offence, but high-flying Blackpool nevertheless edged Bournemouth 2-1 in the Championship.

One level down, Academy midfielder Conor Coady remained on the bench as Sheffield United lost 1-0 away from home against Carlisle.
Having joined Brentford on loan earlier this week, Joao Carlos Teixeira was introduced for the closing moments of the League One side's dramatic 4-3 win at Tranmere.
Midfielder Suso completed the full match when Almeria travelled to Atletico Madrid; the Spaniard picked up a late booking during his loan club's 4-2 loss in La Liga.
Goalkeeper Pepe Reina is likely to be in action when Serie A table-toppers Napoli host Atalanta on Saturday evening.
