Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer has revealed that his side found motivation from Plymouth Argyle's programme written in their dressing room at Home Park.

The Seasiders clinched a convincing 3-1 victory over their League One counterparts on Tuesday night and thereby continued their strong start to the season.

Following the victory, Bowyer said a feature in Plymouth's match-day programme helped provide Blackpool with the added motivation to win the game. The Lancashire outfit had beaten Plymouth by a 3-0 scoreline in their previous visit to Home Park in March, but Bowyer was surprised to note how poor the Pilgrims were on Tuesday evenings. The visiting head coach discovered that the Pilgrims had not won on their home turf on a Tuesday night since September 2015, and he made sure to add the statistic on his player's minds prior to kick-off.
