STEVE Thompson reminded chairman Karl Oyston of his managerial prowess by guiding Blackpool to a much-needed 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

The former Bolton midfielder was placed in caretaker charge of first team affairs on Saturday following Ian Holloway’s decision to take up the vacant position at npower Championship rivals Crystal Palace, and got off to a woeful start with a heavy defeat at Derby.

However, reports that Oyston was locked in talks with an unnamed club - believed to be Portsmouth in a bid to secure Michael Appleton’s services - failed to unsettle Thompson as Thomas Ince’s eighth goal of the season and Ludovic Sylvestre’s late strike inspired the Seasiders to their first win in six outings.
