Two Gary Taylor-Fletcher goals extended play-off candidates Blackpool's unbeaten run to 10 matches as Ian Holloway's side beat Doncaster 3-1 last night to move up to fourth in the Championship.

The forward put the visitors two ahead within the first 35 minutes before El Hadji Diouf pulled a goal back from the spot, but Nouha Dicko secured the points with 20 minutes remaining.

Third-placed Cardiff City also strengthened their hold on a play-off place, moving to within three points of Southampton with a comfortable 3-1 win over struggling Peterborough.

Birmingham and Hull played out a goalless draw at St Andrew's and remain a point apart either side of the play-off zone.
