Crystal Palace face a trip to Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Eagles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2007, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Championship match.
