RUDY Gestede scored either side of half-time as Rovers edged a full-blooded derby at a windswept Bloomfield Road to record their first win of the Championship season.

Gestede, who now has 11 goals in his last 10 starts, opened his account for the campaign in the 26th minute with a clinical right-footed finish.

And the man of the match doubled his tally two minutes after the restart when he headed in from close range after Craig Conway stood the ball up toward the back post.

At that stage Rovers were seemingly set to go on and record a comfortable victory over their under-prepared but fired-up Lancashire rivals.

But Blackpool dragged themselves back into the contest in the 53rd minute after a shot from Tomasz Cywka squirmed underneath the body of Paul Robinson.

Both teams had chances to score again in what developed into a frantic second half.

However Rovers saw the match out to stretch their unbeaten league run to 14 games – seven of which have been away from home – and bounce back from their shock midweek Capital One Cup exit.

Gary Bowyer made nine changes to the side which started the bitterly disappointing 1-0 home loss to Scunthorpe United.

And it was a good job he did as the hosts – as the Rovers boss had warned beforehand – gave his team a real run for their money.

Pool, whose line-up featured 10 home debutants, went close in the third minute when a misplaced pass from Corry Evans led David Perkins to dragging a 20-yarder inches past the post.

Eight minutes later and Joe Lewis was tested for the first time as Jordan Rhodes, who was otherwise quiet, turned sharply before firing into the goalkeeper’s arms.

But there was nothing Lewis could do to prevent Gestede from breaking the deadlock when he smashed in from 12 yards following a lightning-fast counter-attack which he had started.

Gestede raced away to celebrate in front of the magnificent 2,227 travelling supporters.

And, after Rovers captain Grant Hanley blazed over from a corner, the towering targetman had further reason to cheer after he met Conway’s cross to give Lewis no chance.

Pool’s response to falling further behind was spirited and after Hanley, who was making his 100th league start for the club, and Evans failed to clear their lines Cywka beat Robinson.

And, after Conway sent a drive just the wrong side of the upright, the former England number one almost gifted John Lundstram an equaliser as he allowed the on-loan Everton midfielder’s swerving strike to slip out of his fingers.

Robinson, who to his credit went on to make crucial saves from Nathan Delfouneso, got back to push the ball on to the post with Jason Lowe doing brilliantly to block Ishmael Miller’s follow-up.

The visitors also hit the woodwork after another quick break, led by the jet-heeled Josh King, ended with Evans seeing an attempt deflect on to the upright and go out for a corner.

With the match on a knife-edge Rovers needed to kill the game and Bowyer made the right decision to replace Rhodes with Lee Williamson.

And, with Pool’s threat reduced, Gestede almost put a seal on it in injury-time when he latched on to a long punt downfield from Robinson and sent an acrobatic half-volley past the post.

Bowyer said: “We knew it would present a difficult challenge and it was that but I thought we saw all aspects of our game which was really pleasing today.”

Anyway, good result and a sharp reminder that there are NO easy games in this league, ever.

Hi, I am a Burnley maggot loser, I must say this was a good result for you after all we only managed to get one past Blackpool when they had only 13 players on contract. I expect us to get a thoroughly good and well deserved drubbing on Monday now that the luck donkey we rode over the premier league finish line has dropped dead from the beating it required to drag our arses over the line. We can't possibly be that lucky two seasons on the trot with a team full of Div 1 floaters. Trips ings and Vokes will do okay but the rest, strewth words fail me.

If anyone is interested in kicking this Burnley maggots arse just enter a dream team at sky sports fantasy football and join my league " Doomed I Tell Thee". pin number 8095708. There you will be able to give me drubbing after drubbing after drubbing just like my BFC are going to get every week.

Great day out, ears are still ringing and throat is sore, I had forgotten what away days were like, thanks for the reminder guys (and gals).

This game looked a walk over on paper and although Rovers edged the first half and threatened to swamp Blackpool early on in the second, Blackpool, to their credit came back at us and with a bit of luck could have snatched a point.

These are 3 very good points because if this is a ramshackle Blackpool squad I would hate to face them when they get organised, especially if they can pick up a decent striker, they won't be in the bottom 3 for long.

GB was a little later than most would have liked with his changes but he got them right in the end, King was absolutely knackered 10 minutes before he was replaced by Marshall, no criticism that as he worked his socks off at both ends of the pitch and taking Rhodes off, who was well contained by the Blackpool defence and replacing him with Williamson to shore up a creaking midfield worked out fine, although many didn't agree at the time.

Small, bumpy pitch, tight stadium (first time I have been since it was rebuilt), gusty, swirling wind, certainly not a classic game but one you couldn't take your eyes off for a second.

Think we will be going on a few more away days this season. :-)

Typical rovers fan eh? Someone posts that you were lucky to beat an outfit thrown together ans they must be a Burnley fan! How sad some of you really are. Ya support a team that,well to be honest, wont finish in the top ten. Ya support a team that is, well, basically, rubbish. Ya have a striker who has yet to score this season and is costing you more in wages every week then you are getting in gate money. Should i go on? Now crawl back into the world were you dream that rovers are a football team and let the world talk about football as it should be told.
Assuming your a burnley fan, how many goals had ings scored pre season?

But you see Burnley are in the Premier League now, you remember that place don't you?

It's where we used to be.

And now look at us, all whacking each other off because we beat a team that only recently had just 8 players on the books. We were poor and we only managed to hold on to the win because they were even worse than us. God help us against Norwich and Bournemouth.

Early days but we've not shown that we're up to it by a long way.

Wake up and smell the poultry my webfingered friend, we've got the pleasure of Jordans presence (not goals) until January, at which time he will move on. The decision to reward him with such an obscene contract could well be the straw that broke the FFP camels back.

3 points in the bag a positive result against a side strung together defence still needs improvements without peeing on anybody's parade a decent team would have torn rovers to pieces and before anybody says different 1 swallow doesn't make a summer Norwich Tuesday. Draw would be a good result

not a convincing performance but a win all the same and i'll be honest i'll take that all season, PR had a couple of dodgy moment.

I can see RG being top goal scorer this season, JR was somewhat ineffective in my opinion, I cant see why GB took him off thought, if pool would have got another it would have just been another draw, we should have kept at them instead of making do with a two to one lead, and although as I say JR was ineffective as long as he's on the field he has the ability to score.

Well done lads, good win. Tidy start to the season. Although a very good new goalkeeper is required, goalkeeper errors cost us a lot of points last season, could prevent us from being promoted again. Robbo looks like he's spent the break in Leaver's pie shop!

But you see Burnley are in the Premier League now, you remember that place don't you?

It's where we used to be.

And now look at us, all whacking each other off because we beat a team that only recently had just 8 players on the books. We were poor and we only managed to hold on to the win because they were even worse than us. God help us against Norwich and Bournemouth.

Early days but we've not shown that we're up to it by a long way.

Bowyer has a lot to do to win some fans over, I think he's losing it.
A lot of people laughed when I tipped Bournemouth to be dark horses this season. They’ve certainly had a good start and may stay up there.

Great day out, ears are still ringing and throat is sore, I had forgotten what away days were like, thanks for the reminder guys (and gals).

This game looked a walk over on paper and although Rovers edged the first half and threatened to swamp Blackpool early on in the second, Blackpool, to their credit came back at us and with a bit of luck could have snatched a point.

These are 3 very good points because if this is a ramshackle Blackpool squad I would hate to face them when they get organised, especially if they can pick up a decent striker, they won't be in the bottom 3 for long.

GB was a little later than most would have liked with his changes but he got them right in the end, King was absolutely knackered 10 minutes before he was replaced by Marshall, no criticism that as he worked his socks off at both ends of the pitch and taking Rhodes off, who was well contained by the Blackpool defence and replacing him with Williamson to shore up a creaking midfield worked out fine, although many didn't agree at the time.

Small, bumpy pitch, tight stadium (first time I have been since it was rebuilt), gusty, swirling wind, certainly not a classic game but one you couldn't take your eyes off for a second.

Think we will be going on a few more away days this season. :-)
Fair assessment there Owd Nick
My first visit to the new Bloomfield as well, the pitch did look small but having checked, is only 1yd on length and 2yds on width smaller than Ewood.
Liked the 'realistic' size also, at 16,750 capacity, can imagine a Blackpool side playing well with a good away crowd will have a great atmosphere.
Just a shame about the temporary stand we were in with those annoying pillars.
Gestede will rightly get the plaudits, thought Conway for me was the pick of the bunch, showed quality all through the game and also thought Baptiste did ok at ch, nothing fancy, he just did the basics right.
Bit disappointed we never really got on top of the midfield but fair play to them, they never gave up.
Now looking forward to the Norwich game, have to say very annoyed that Norwich refused our request to beam back the match live to Ewood !!

I think he took Rhodes off because we were being overrun in midfield which was putting real pressure on the defence because they were getting too much room to run at us through the middle.

Rhodes was actually fairly quiet, Blackpool had obviously done their homework on him and Williamson was pretty effective in plugging the hole in midfield giving the defence a little more time to breath.
