Martin Payero went wide with a free kick and Middlesbrough finally registered their first attempt three minutes later.

Bowler had a shot saved by Joe Lumley after a good run at halftime, while Lavery was denied and Bowler made a wide effort as Blackpool continued to dominate the proceedings.

Isaiah Jones fired for the visitors after a good run in the 71st minute.

But Lavery closed the tie with his second goal in two games after beating Lumley on his first post in the 77th minute and substitute Anderson made it 3-0 a minute later after his flick-on got in the way of the back post. .

Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock said: “They really beat us.

“With 1-0, I thought we had good chances to play again, but we never got the most out of anything. We never seemed to score.

“I’m not very happy tonight. It’s disappointing because that’s our backup team versus the backup team.

“You have answered some questions, which is what I wanted. We don’t have a large enough squad to come here and lose two players.

“Tonight shows what we have to back it up and it’s really disappointing. There were one or two players who were bad ”.
