Crystal Palace prepare to entertain Blackpool at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 12 games played, Eagles have recorded 4 wins, and Blackpool have come away with 3 victories.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Selhurst Park was less than a year ago, in March 2008, when they played out a goalless draw in a Championship match.
