Blackpool produced one of their best performances of the season as they put Scunthorpe to the sword 3-1 on their travels to Glanford Park.
Prior to the visit of Simon Grayson's Blackpool and second placed Scunthorpe had not lost in 14 but it was the away side always in control on Friday night.
Blackpool's ascendancy was rewarded in the 27th minute when in-form Andy Morrell grabbed his eighth goal of the season and it was a lead they held at the half-time break.
The second 45 minutes again showed Blackpool in control and they grabbed a second on 58 minutes when Wesley Hoolahan converted from the penalty spot after Joe Murphy had brought down Keigan Parker.
Hoolahan's night was tarnished somewhat when he was sent-off for a pair of silly bookings but after Parker rounded Murphy to grab his side's third, there was no way back for Scunthorpe.
In the final minute substitute Ian Baraclough reduced the deficit but it proved to be scant consolation on a night best forgot for Scunthorpe.
