Latest Info Ahead of Final Game

Blackpool will aim to secure Championship football for another season with a positive result against Charlton Athletic tomorrow, kick-off 12.15pm.

The Seasiders require at least a point from the final game of the campaign, while the visitors arrive having confirmed their divisional status in midweek.

Barry Ferguson will have the same personnel available to him for the fixture, given that Kirk Broadfoot, Gary MacKenzie and Steven Davies remain on the sidelines.

Rhoys Wiggins misses out for Charlton so Morgan Fox is likely to stand in. 

Manager Views

Barry Ferguson: "The only thing I'm concentrated on is getting three points. I had a brief meeting with the players on Monday and said to them 'one last push'." 

Jose Riga: "We made them understand that they have the quality and that they can grow together because they can always improve day after day."

Ticket News

Just odd seats now remain on sale for the game and can be purchased from the ticket office, subject to availability. Pre-booked tickets will be available for collection at the ticket booth, located just outside the ticket office, from 9am.

Tickets will be on sale for any Charlton fans still wishing to make the trip. Tickets can be purchased from the away ticket booth from 11am.
