Its the big one that we’ve been waiting for Blackpool v Preston. Eight seasons have passed since the last meeting of the sides, back in December we took all three points beating the knobbers 1-0 in their own backyard. Next Saturday they come to Bloomfield Road looking for their first win since 1992, thats not going to happen?
Our last win at Bloomers was in 1997 Preece and Philpott with the goals in a 2-1 win. The last match in 2000 at Bloomers, ended in a 0-0 draw watched by 9042 fans its a pity that the attendance on Saturday won’t be much more due to the lack of development at Bloomers.
I know its going to be one hell of an atmosphere on Saturday but the results in recent weeks have cast a slight doubt to whether we can beat the Scum. They’ve won two away on the bounce 1-0 against Leicester and then 2-1 against Charlton. I suppose we beat Leicester too and the other week we thrashed Charlton. I have to say that I would be happy with a point, we just can’t get beat!
Anyway at least we don’t have to deal with Brett Ormerod who moved to Nottingham Forest on loan on Friday. Ormerod 89!!
