The win ensures Blackpool advance to the knockout stages of the competition after finishing top of Group G with six points.

Bushiri unleashed a powerful drive across the goalkeeper in the dying embers of the fixture. The Belgian had a nervy start but improved as the game developed.

Elsewhere, Louis Thompson played 25 minutes for Shrewsbury Town in League One as they beat high-flying Peterborough United 1-0.

Thompson was a second half substitute as Town moved up to 11th in the table.
