Blackpool boss Holloway insists they will not be defensive

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway says there'll be no parking the bus in front of his team's goal next season.

Indeed, anyone who thinks Holloway may be tempted to adopt a more defensive approach in the top flight is mistaken.

The manager told the Blackpool Gazette: "We went up last season because we played with no fear and we will keep doing that.

"If we are seven down at Chelsea, then I'm going to try to score ... so it might end up 12.

"We won't change our philosophy about attacking people, home and away, and that might lead to some entertaining games, so we won't end up last on Match of the Day every week because there will be some goals going in!

"At the end of the day my job is to try to make it entertaining."
