Blackpool boss Holloway hints at board tension over finances

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway hinted at tension with the board after their promotion playoff defeat to West Ham United.

Holloway appeared unwilling to think too far ahead to next season, seemingly aggrieved at the lack of financial support for him and his squad.

He said: "We have got to get over playing in the Championship again because we were all hoping we could play in the top flight and then it's all change.

"They deserve a lot better than what they've got this season.

"Being in this level - to have to win it to get the fair amount of money that the other people are being paid - isn't right in my opinion. But we've got to get over it.

"It's about building now. What are we doing and where are we going? And I can't answer those questions."
