Wigan raced into a two-goal lead when Ryan Small headed home a wonderful corner fom Mike Wood on 19 minutes and Phil Jones struck a 20-yard half-volley two minutes later for his first goal for the club.
The Robins bombarded the Blackpool as Small, Chris McNally and Dean Mideley all went close.
But on 38 minutes Blackpool were offered a lifeline when Chris Williams conceded a penalty that AFC's skipper Mark Ashall duly despatched.
The second half saw the Robins dominate but substtitute Martin Dutton committed an unnecessary foul on the edge of the area.
The free kick was whipped in for Martin Baird to equalise for the visitors.
With Blackpool coming more into the game manager John Neafcy introduced a physical presence to the game with the introduction of Paul Vermiglio and the big man rewarded the boss with two superb goals within two minutes. The first from his head and then a 25-yard screamer to make the score 4-2.
To Blackpool's credit they continued to attack and Joel Cowell brought the deficit back to one that ensured a nervy final five minutes for the Robins as they held on to win 4-3.
The three points took the Robins points tally over the two seasons in the Vodkat League to a hundred and meant they finished twelfth in the league this term.
While the three points meant that the Robins finished the season in twelfth place it was also fitting that the man-of-the-match award went to Darren Mullen who was making his final appearace for The Robins.
Afforded a guard of honour as he entered the field; thirty-eight-year-old Mullen has been with The Robins since their formation and the club captain has been a model professional throughout that time.
Always vocal and never scared to fight his corner he has been an excellent player.
Strong in the air, a good distributor and a great talker who has helped bring some of the young lads along and has played in most positions for the club including emergency goalkeeper. Some say goalie is his best position!
He has been the club's penalty taker since its formation – despite various centre-forwards trying to do a “Drogba” and take it off him – and has chipped in with some valuable goals. He has also played many games staight after working a 12-hour night shift and in this.
Mullen has his coaching badges and will be joining the Robins coaching staff next season.
Daz has been a true servant to the club and his attitude, professionalism, spirit and dedication sums up what is means to be a Robin.
