Jake Beesley’s double helped Blackpool to their sixth home League One win of the season with a dominant 4-0 victory over Shrewsbury.

Top scorer Jordan Rhodes opened the scoring before Beesley netted either side of a Kyle Joseph strike to continue the Seasiders’ fine record at Bloomfield Road, with 20 of their 27 points being picked up at home.

A chance presented itself to Rhodes from the spot after Tom Flanagan fouled Karamoko Dembele and the in-form striker lashed home the resulting penalty for his 10th goal of the season.

The hosts doubled the advantage when Beesley turned in CJ Hamilton’s cross to put them firmly in control at the break.

Sonny Carey tried his luck but was denied by a fine save from Marko Marosi, who demonstrated sharp reflexes to keep out the rebound that fell to Beesley.

Neil Critchley took off Rhodes and introduced summer signing Joseph after 67 minutes and just seven minutes later, he marked his home debut with a goal.

Beesley rubbed salt into the gaping Shrewsbury wounds, rounding the goalkeeper before slotting in to make it 4-0.
